Eyeshadows are accessible in all colours of the rainbow, so finding the best colour palette for your blue colour may need patience and time. As a common rule of thumb, pick options on the colour wheel – a circle diagram illustrating the relationship between various colours – that oppose your eye colour to make a fun visual contrast.
Eyeshadow Types to Use
▷ Powder Eyeshadows
Power eyeshadows are the most general and by far the most famous. They can be used for anything from natural looks to dramatic, intricate looks. Their colour payoff can be immense, but they can also be a little hard to work with.
▷ Eyeshadow Palettes
With eyeshadow palettes, you can get a bunch of colours all at once for a combined price, and generally, all the shades go well together. That is why palettes are so famous these days.
▷ Single Eyeshadow
Sometimes you just want to buy one eyeshadow. It might be an extremely specific colour that you want to include in your existing collection or maybe you want to customize a colour story. You might also enjoy single-shadow makeup looks! Purchasing single shadows costs more than buying palettes, but if your flavours run specific, it is less wasteful.
Four neutral eyeshadow palette colours for blue eyes
Different eyeshadow colours can affect the look of blue eyes, so experiment with many palettes to find the most perfect option for your needs. Here are some colours to try:
1. Orange tones
Hot orange tones oppose blue on the colour wheel, or using colour eyeshadows is the best way to highlight blue eyes. Unlike some darker eyeshadow colours, orange tones would not overwhelm or mask the blue eyes' shade. Blend orange with pink eyeshadow or pale beige to highlight the bold blue of your eye colour. Some gold eyeshadow also has an orange tint, so keep in mind adding a shimmery gold layer for a dramatic look.
2. Matte Brown
Matte eyeshadows are best for daytime looks because they seamlessly blend into the skin texture. Gentle brown tones highlight blue eyes, so blend soft shades of matte beige and brown eyeshadows for a natural look. Aim to use shades of brown that reflect your natural skin tone to match your makeup to your look.
3. Blue Tones
Using blue eyeshadow is an easy way to improve the natural intensity of your blue eyes. If you have blue eyes with a grey hue, combine a light blue eyeshadow with silver shimmer to make an evening or day look. For an extra dramatic look, keep in mind applying navy blue eyeshadow along the lower lash line of your eyes. Play with various shades, blending lighter blue eyeshadows near the inside corner of your eyes and darker blue eyeshadows near the outer corners.
4. Green Shades
If your eyes change from green to blue under different types of lighting, consider using a soft green eyeshadow. Lighter green, such as complement blue eyes, turquoise and teal, white darker and more intense shades such as emerald green, may be awe-inspiring.
How to pick a great eyeshadow palette for blue eyes?
1. Shadows that make blue eyes pop
Coral, copper, peach... these are the complementary colours that make the blue eye pop.
2. Great pigmentation
Most makeup lovers want an eyeshadow with top pigmentation that covers the lid in just a single swipe. Anyway, those new to makeup might be intimidated by such powerful formulas, and some shoppers just favour really soft washes of colour.
3. Easy to use
No one wants to struggle or fuss when applying eyeshadow. You want a buttery shadow that glides over the lids and blends out simply. Your experience and style level will also influence which shadows you will find simple to work with.
