15 Pretty Makeup Ideas for Blue Eyes

If you’re one of these blue-eyed babes, we’ve got some stunning makeup ideas for blue eyes that will really make those ocean portals shine.

It is common knowledge that if you want a color to stand out, you place it next to its contrasting color. Blue is the opposite of orange in the color wheel so using shades like burnt orange, peach, copper, and gold will really make your blue eyes stand out. But this year the trend has shifted in other directions. This year is the year for color matching. This goes for matching your nails with your makeup or your hair and even your favorite pair of sliders. And this is also the case for eyes and eye makeup. Try matching the shade of your eyes with the shade of your eye shadow, so if you have light blue eyes, go for pastel blues. If your eyes have green tones in them, go for greeny blue shades like turquoise and petrol.

Another strong makeup trend this year is bright red lipstick and faux freckles. This particular look goes hand in hand with blue eyes. You’ll find some stunning examples of this look below. But of course, you can never go wrong with the natural look. Pairing blue eyes with a peachy or sunkissed blusher is a pretty and natural look. Choosing eyeshadows in subtle pink or nude shades and just adding a flick of eyeliner will often be enough, you’re eyes will do the rest of the work.

We’ve got a selection of some of this year’s makeup looks for blue eyes to give you some inspiration. If you come across a look that you like, you can follow the Instagrammer for more inspiration and show the love!
