Copy Cate Blanchett's Beauty Look from The Hobbit Premiere

The Colour Combination That Will Make Blue Eyes Pop

Although Cate Blanchett usually veers towards the neutral end of the makeup palette, she opted for flushed salmon on cheeks and lips at this week's The Hobbit premiere. The addition of warm, rosy tones made her blue eyes seem brighter, and it's all because of the colour wheel.

Blue sits directly across from orange and red on the wheel, meaning those hues complement each other. So if you're looking to make your cerulean gaze take centre stage, bust out orange-tinged, pinky-red shades, whether they're swept on eyes, cheeks, or lips. Salmon is an ideal pick because it's a perfect mix of orange and pink. Try Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush ($65) for a natural glow that gives beautiful blues bottomless depth.
