Eyeshadow Tips For Blue Eyes

Pink Eye Shadow
Pink is a smart choice for people with blue eyes. Usually natural blue eyes are accompanied by fair complexion and the colour pink look very subtle on people with fair skin. Choose light or medium shades of pink to deck your blue eyes with, and you will see many heads turning in admiration. Stay away from shades of purple if you have blue eyes.

Brown Eyeshadow
Brown eyeshadows are one of the best colours by which you can enhance your medium to dark blue eyes. Brown is the colour that complements blue quite well, and it will surely amplify your eyes. However, not all shades of brown will look good on blue eyes. It is the shade of brown that you choose that makes all the difference. You can opt for very light shades of brown if you want to magnify your blue eyes. Dark brown eyeshadows should be worn only if you have light blue eyes.

Grey Eyeshadow
Light shades of grey can be worn by a person having light or medium blue eyes. Grey will enhance and amplify the beauty of your light blue eyes. Make sure to wear a subtle shade of grey in order to acquire the best appearance out of the eyeshadow.

Orange Eyeshadow
Sounds strange, but orange based eyeshadows are one of the best choices for a person with blue eyes. Shades of orange provide a pleasant contrast to blue eyes and highlight them thereby amplifying the blue eyes. You can choose anything from coral, peach, rust, copper or any other such shades of orange that will not make you look like a clown as bright orange shades might otherwise make you look.
