Struggling to find the perfect makeup that enhances your gorgeous blue eyes? POPSUGAR Beauty US visited the pros at Blushington in West Hollywood, who taught them the tricks to making blue eyes stand out. Learn what shades help enhance those baby blues, what colours to avoid, and how your lipstick and blush can be equally as important when highlighting your eye colour.
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.
I always think those ol' blue-eyed, green-eyed to and brown-eyed girls have it easy. There are heaps of shadows and mascaras out there designed 'specially for them. But what about The Inbetweeners, huh? Those who have a combo of two or even all three of these shades. What are we meant to do, I ask? And I answer "chillax." For there are many-a-celeb just like you (and me) who face the same thing. And here are five of them that we're turning to for inspiration . . .
So you proably know by now, being the very intelligent ladies that you are, that based on the colour wheel, there are certain eyeshadows that make each eye colour pop.
Purple, for instance, is great for green-eyed girls, while bronze looks lovely on those with blue eyes. Brown-eyed beauties are the luckiest of the bunch, as most shades look great on them.
But there are other ways to make your eye colour stand out too . . .
Green eyes: Try a coral or peachy-toned lip shade to bring out the green tones in your eyes. MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF 15 in Gentle Coral ($28) or MAC Lipstick in Vegas Volt ($35) are both perfect.
