When you fix your piercing blue eyes on an unsuspecting victim, he may do just about anything you ask. The clear and clean blue color shining out from blue eyes can make them sparkle dramatically. Be sure to make your eye shadows emphasize your eyes and enhance the true blue color. With the right eye shadow color, your eyes might do all the talking.
Think about the effect you want. If natural is the goal, keep the colors light and frosty. If you need a dramatic look, choose darker colors to accentuate your blue eyes.
Choose a color family and then select two or three tones within that family. For example, if you select the brown color family, you might go with a frosty champagne color as the base color and then accentuate this color with coppers, golds or taupes. If you select the purple color family, you can start with a light lavender over the eyelids and add darker violets and grape colors to accent the light lavender.
Use eyeliners in the same color family as the shadows you use. You should usually use a darker eyeliner over lighter eye shadows (a dark charcoal gray over a light gray, for example). With blue eyes, darker eye liners will accentuate the blue color and make your eyes appear more dramatically blue.
Experiment with colors you like -- you may find color combinations that work with your shade of blue.
Smooth your lids with yellow-toned primer to reduce redness and smudging.
Dip your eyeliner in opalescent shimmer before tracing your bottom lid and draw the spotlight to your baby blues.
Stay away from most blue eye shadows and eyeliners. These colors generally wash out the natural blue of your eyes. One exception is very deep blue colors -- these colors can enhance your blue eyes if you use them to complement colors like light champagne or very light gray.
