Makeup Monday – For blue eyes

May 30, 2011 at 2:29 pm Leave a comment

This Monday we are looking at eyeshadows that flatters and enhances blue eyes. Usually you will be recommended to use contrasting colours, so for blue eyes that would be any shade that has orange in it (like mustard yellow, terracotta, bronze, copper and warm browns). But this is a fresh new take on it that our Swedish blogging friend Isabelle found in a Glamour magazine from 2006!

If you have blue eyes you can usually find bits of silver, gray and white in them. So to enhance them, try using eyeshadows in those colours!

Here Isabelle used Fog that she blended with a tiny little bit of Black Ice (she recommends blending eyeshadows in the lid, just a little bit so you’re not left with a lot extra). Apply the silvery gray eyeshadow all over the lid and smudge it below the eye. Apply black eyeliner above and below the eye as well, keep close to the lash line. Finish with tons of black mascara. The blacker your lashes, the bluer your eyes will look!

Gorgeous Isabelle! Be sure to visit her blog for more tips and tricks! My favorite is her “Makeup of the day” posts, it gives me tons of ideas!
