Eye Shadows For Blue Eyes

Tips for Blue Eyes

Conside these color eyeshadows for blue eyes:

*White shadow

*Grey shades

*Khaki colored shadow

*Chocolate brown



*Camel shadow

Best Color Eyeliners for Blue Eyes include:

*Shades of brown



*Light purple shades




These colored eyeliners help the eyes look even more blue. If you want your eyes to really stand out, then go in for darker shades of dark brown, blacks and charcoal.

Night Out Blue Eye Look - Maybelline Chai Latte Quad Eyeshadow

When you go out for a night on the town, you're usually looking for a more sassy look! I found this Maybelline Chai Latte Quad eyeshadow on Amazon for under $5! Make sure you click "Subscribe and Save" saving you 5% (you can cancel as soon as you receive it!) With this eyeshadow quad there are unlimited ways to do your makeup. The one I showed is the least dramatic way because I also used Urban Decay Maui Wowie eyeshadow using it on my inner eye. I lined my lashes with a Maybelline Gel Eyeliner which I love!! I winged it out on the edges of my eyes making my lashes look thicker than they are! Very cheap and easy to use.

Is doing your eye makeup a challenge? It was for me too but with this quad it literally says where to put each color on the product (Base, lid, crease, and liner!) Love. <3

White EyeLiner

By applying white eyeliner to the inside of the lower lash liner, you can create the illusion of a bigger eye.


The eyebrows are very important and should be maintained. The eyebrows provide a frame for the eyes and if they look imperfect, so do your eyes. Brows should be kept plucked and waxed to create the right angel to show off your eyes.

Under Eye Concealer

Put a crescent-moon of concealer under each eye. Start at the inner corner of the lower eyelid and drag the concealer stick or your finger to the outer corner and tapered at the ends. This will hide any dark circles or discoloration and will bring focus to your beautiful blue eyes!


Add a dot of shimmer or sparkly light eyeshadow to the inner corner of each eye to make those blue eyes pop!

My Natural Eye Makeup Routine

Here's a picture of myself with my personal blue eye makeup routine.

To get the look:

1. Apply navy blue eyeliner pencil to your top lids but only to the middle of them (about where your pupil is).

2. Apply the same eyeliner to the bottom of your eye only 3/4th of the way below your lashes as well.

3. Curl your eyelashes with a simple drugstore eyelash curler, holding for 10 seconds.

3. Apply 3-4 layers of LashBlast Covergirl mascara starting from the inner eye going outwards on top.

4. Apply 1-2 layers of mascara to the bottom lashes.

5. Let dry and go!

The reason I do my makeup like this is because by only applying eyeliner to half my eye gives the illusion that my eyes are much bigger than they really are! The eyeliner I use is below to purchase

Jordana Easyliner Retractable Pencil for Eyes Blue Devine (6-pack)

This is my go-to eyeliner by the brand Jordana,it is in the color Blue Devine. It is the cheapest retractable eyeliner pencil i've found that is decent quality. This is a 6 pack of pencils for less than $10! The only drawback is that you can't sharpen or get a pointed end to it. I like the smudgey look though so it works for me. If you don't feel like ordering it online, stop by your local Walgreens and stop by the beauty register as they have tons of other colors for under $3!

      the girl in the video has eyebrows that are sooo uneven. I see this so much in make-up tutorials and commercials. Bare Minerals commercial has a blonde girl whose eyebrows are very uneven. It drives me crazy. Sorry, not trying to be rude. I just can't believe they don't notice it. Her right (which is on your left if looking at your computer screen) is arched way higher than the other one. And that same eyebrow it plucked much further away from her nose than the other one. Like I said, noticably different. Great make -up job though.

      I, use a beautiful honey gold eye shadow on the lid then a copper brown on outer corners of lid followed by a deeper chocolate brown in the crease and a light eggshell gold color for a highlighter under the eye I,use the chocolate brown color from outer corner to just under the pupil with a little copper brown blended in. inner corner I, use the honey gold and lighter gold. black liner top and bottom from outer edges to mid section of eye followed with black mascara. this combo makes blue eyes pop they look sexy,and glamorus. l'oreal makes some amazing eyeshadows in beautiful colors.

      i never thought of some of these colors. my favorite technique is using a light gold, and a thin black liner just over the lashes on top and in the bottom, makes my eyes reflect a beautiful blue in the Florida sun:)
