Eye Poppin' Series: Baby Blues

Hey everyone!
Today I bring you a look best suited for blue eyes. I really envy blue eyes. Ever since I can remember I've wanted big, beautiful, blue eyes. I just think they are so pretty, especially with darker hair. I've even considered getting colored contacts to try and satisfy my want for them... Is that bad? lol I guess we always want what we don't have.

So, on to the look, referring back to the color wheel, the color that is directly across from blue is orange. The most flattering colors to use with blue eyes are coppers, bronze, and browns. These colors look so beautiful across blue eyes and really make them POP! 

Now, for the tutorial...
First, apply a copper, golden cream base to the lid to make the shadows look more vibrant. Place this from the lash line to the crease.

Next, apply a shimmery copper shade over the cream base.

Apply a light golden shadow to highlight the inner corner and just below the brow.

Take a matte medium brown shadow and run this shade in the crease using windshield wiper motions.

Next, take a dark brown and apply it onto the outer corner of your lid and also onto the outer third of your lower lash line.

For the last eyeshadow, take a dark matte brown and apply it over the last brown you used. This helps deepen the color of the brown in the outer corner.

Take a dark brown liner and thinly line the top lash line and the outer third of the lower lash line.

Lastly, curl lashes and apply mascara.

Voila! 

Blue eyes? I wish...
Let me know what you guys think of this look! I think this look is a great neutral look for anyone.

  2. I do my makeup pretty similarly to this. It's funny that you said that because I have blue eyes, but I've always been jealous of big brown eyes. The grass is always greener, I suppose.
