Eyeshadow 101: How to Make Blue Eyes Pop

Blue-eyed babes, you have it lucky. You've probably noticed that it's near impossible to make your pretty peepers look dull — after all, your icy irises naturally stand out! But if you really want your makeup to make your eyes pop, remember what you learned about colour theory in elementary school.Shades across from one another on the colour wheel are complementary. For blue, that coordinating colour is yellow. We're not about to advise you to sport bright, canary eye shadow, but rather gorgeous gold-flecked shades. If you're a darker dame, our Eyeshadow 101: How to Make Brown Eyes Look Bigger With Makeup is more for you.

To discover more colour options, find out your skin's undertone. (Remember: warm skin tones will lean golden or olive, while cooler ones will have a blue or pink cast.) If you have a warmer complexion, opt for similarly warm colors, like peach, copper, or raisin. If you have a cool complexion, try jewel tones like eggplant or cool bronze. Read on for celebrity inspiration.
