Easy Makeup for Blue Eyes!


Watch the video tutorial here!

I don't have blue eyes, my eyes are brown.  But I love love love wearing colours that are made for blue-eyed girls...I can't help it!  They're just so pretty!  If you are a blue eyed beauty and you really want to make your eye colour POP, you should opt for warm browns, gold, bronze, and copper.  Blue is one of the lightest eye colours so wearing very dark or vibrant colours can sometimes look too harsh.  You'll also notice I used black eyeliner in this tutorial but this is because my eyes are brown and I feel they can take so much intensity.  However often with lighter eye colours, a brown or a grey eye pencil works better!


To achieve this look, I used my Sedona Lace 120 Palette (2nd Edition).  You can purchase it here.


I first primed my lids with MAC's Prep + Prime for eyes.  This will help the shadows stay on for longer and show the true intensity of the colours.


I used a shimmery copper colour (1) and put it all over my lid with a flat eyeshadow brush. I then used a blending brush and applied the bronze shimmery colour (2) onto the crease and with a pencil brush I also applied it to the lower lashline.


I then took a fluffy brush and applied this gold/buttermilk colour (3) onto my brow bone and blended it into the crease colour to avoid any harsh lines.


I used a thin line of liquid liner on the top lids (Maybelline Line Definer in black), a pencil liner in the waterline (Impala Waterproof liner also in black) and a volumising mascara (CoverGirl's LashBlast). 

Here is a closer look at the finished eyes!


It's such an easy look, with only 3 colours and I think this is perfect for both evening and daytime!  


To finish it all off, I applied some of Maybelline's Rosewood Pearl lipstick.  The warm tones in this shade compliment the golden/bronze eyeshadows.

Let me know if you like the look and if you have any requests for more makeup tutorials to suit different eye colours, just let me know! 

Stay Stylish!

  8. this is so darn gorgeous. i think a hazel eye one would be great. i'm never sure if "brown eye" or "green eye" looks suit best because they're mostly brown but still have the green in them and it's hard to find tutorials for the hazel :)
