Blue eyed women can wear navy blue, dark brown and cream shades, but those with fair complexions should stick to the paler shades for daytime. Green eyes and hazel eyes are well suited with browns, greens and taupe while gray eyes can handle a variety of blues, grays and even black.
From sultry and smoky to fun and flirty, the eye makeup can greatly change your whole look. However, when you are going to choose the right makeup for your eyes, it is not simply to choose your favorite shade. In order to obtain the most complementary look, you have to select the shades according to your natural eye color.
Blue eyes makeup can often be coordinated with the clothes, as clothes often help determine the changing colors of these eyes. Unless your eyes are very deep blue, dark shades can wipe away the vigor of the eye. You can use dark shades for very dark eyes or you can use dark shades for lining the eye provided that you back it up with lighter shades for a layered visual effect.
When using eyeliner pencil once you have finished apply a small amount of eye shadow over your eyeliner to help set it and prevent it from smudging. Another great tip is to apply eye shadow with a damp angled brush which can be used as an eyeliner.
Eye shadows come in different textures such as powders, creams and liquids. Powders are the most popular choice, as they tend to be the easiest to control. Creams and gloss can give a nice highlighted effect especially for the evening, but can tend to smudge easily and end up forming in the creases of the eye, so wear with care.
Have a cotton bud and eye makeup remover handy in case of mistakes. You can dip the cotton bud in eye makeup and use that to erase mascara smudges or makeup mishaps.
Blend a light powder shadow over the entire eyelid, being careful not to go beyond the crease line. Use a matte base for long lasting durability. Keep your soft brush for this last step but be sure to clean it first. Take the lightest color and apply it to the center of the eye. Blend these shades together and you have a great look.
Applying mascara is very easy. Look in the mirror as you apply. Put the mascara on the lash tips. Put it on from the inside top corner of your eyelid and then the outer corner, moving the wand horizontally. For the bottom lashes, hold the mascara brush vertically and very lightly touch the lower lashes.
