Makeup for blue eyes: suitable techniques and colors
The blue shade of the eyes is one of the rarest, along with gray. Happy owners of blue eyes have repeatedly become the standards of beauty and charm. However, not every girl knows how to correctly emphasize the brightness of the eyes and highlight them, making them more visible and attractive. To do this, you need to master a number of makeup rules especially for blue-eyed beauties.
Basic makeup rules for blue eyes
Blue eyes are a huge range of makeup possibilities. Many techniques and shades are suitable for their owners, but a lot also depends on hair color, skin tone, and the shape of the eyes themselves. However, there are a number of rules that must be observed when choosing a make-up:
- You can emphasize the color of the eyes in daytime makeup using one color shade;
- Shades of shadows that completely match the color of the eyes should be avoided;
- Before applying the eye make-up, you need to carefully prepare the base for the face;
- To create a light look, it is enough to apply a soft kayal contour pencil in blue or blue tones;
- Nude makeup can only be used with bright accents, such as arrows or a shimmer;
- Neutral brown shadows are suitable as the basis for the make-up of blue eyes, the rest of the colors should be saturated and colorful.
Blue-eyed girls need to highlight their eyes – this is the main and most important recommendation of professional makeup artists. This is especially true for fair skin, as blue eyes can be lost in the background.
Girls with blue eyes are ideal for warm shades of shadows:
- Milk chocolate;
- Pale pink;
These tones are best used as the main shadows, on top of which already bright shades are applied, arrows are drawn or various techniques are used. When choosing shadows, you need to remember that shades with an orange undertone are suitable for blue eyes, while too bright a red undertone can make the look sore and tired.
As an additional bright shade for blue eyes, shadows are suitable:
- light green;
Black eyeliner for blue eyes is best replaced with brown, gray or even blue and green. Do not forget also about glitter: glitter, mother-of-pearl, shimmer, but you need to be careful with them and know when to stop. Lipstick is selected in accordance with the rest of the make-up and for its purpose.
You can create beautiful makeup for blue eyes using special techniques. A definite plus for girls with blue eyes is that almost all known makeup techniques are suitable for them:
- Smokey ice;
- with arrows;
- The loop;
- bird wing;
Depending on the purpose of makeup, choose the appropriate technique. Makeup artists recommend combining colors and playing with contrasts to achieve a more expressive look.
Bright shades should be combined with a nude base, and dark ones with a shimmer or glitter. It is better not to combine saturated tones from different color spectra in one make-up, otherwise you can achieve the opposite effect.
The most relevant makeup options for blue eyes are smokey ice, with arrows, relief and a loop. Moreover, the first three are the most common and simple to perform.
Evening makeup for blue eyes
Beautiful makeup for blue-gray eyes, suitable for evening events, can be done in two types: bright and expressive. In the first case, rich and colorful shades of shadows are used:
Nude shades of lipsticks are suitable for this makeup: peach, beige, dusty rose. At the same time, the tone of the lips and shadows should not create obvious contrasts. Of the techniques, it is better to choose embossed or smokey ice. Bright evening make-up is suitable for parties, New Year celebrations and other magnificent celebrations.
Expressive evening makeup for brown eyes is done mainly for wedding celebrations, dates, business dinners and family gatherings. It uses less muted mother-of-pearl shades:
Lips in this case should also be highlighted using red, purple, purple, wine lipstick. You can add arrows to the makeup or highlight the look with the help of a contour. The ideal application option would be techniques: smokey ice, with arrows, embossed or bird’s wing.
Creating a spectacular evening make-up for blue eyes using the “wing” technique is quite easy at home, without having any special skills.
Stage 1: preparation of the base. On the eyelid we apply mother-of-pearl shadows of peach or champagne color. From the moving eyelid, gently shade them, adding a little shine to the fixed eyelid.
Stage 2: bottom arrow. Using a narrow brush, we pick up shadows of light brown or with an orange undertone and draw an arrow from the outer corner of the lower eyelid upwards, thus forming a line resembling a wing span.
Stage 3: shading and dark shades. Feather the resulting arrow up a little, trying to keep the outline. We choose a darker shade from the palette, for example, milk chocolate or cinnamon, and apply it to the outer corner of the eye along the contour of the arrow, also blend it.
Stage 4: top arrow. With a beveled brush, draw the darkest shade of the arrow along the upper eyelid along the lash line. The arrow should turn out to be thin, come from the middle of the eye and go beyond the eyelid, repeating the shape of the lower one.
Stage 5: adding dark shadows. The same shade with which the upper arrow was drawn is added to the outer corner of the eye along the contour of the line. Carefully blend for a smooth and blurry transition between the shadows.
Stage 6: eyelashes. For evening makeup, it is recommended to choose black mascara. Gently paint over the cilia with it, trying not to touch the makeup. We do not touch the lower eyelashes to create the effect of an “open” look.
For such an evening make-up, you can choose almost any shade of lipstick, including matte and satin finishes. Champagne lipsticks with shimmery, scarlet or wine shades and mother-of-pearl lilac tones will be ideally combined.
Day makeup for blue eyes
Creating everyday makeup for gray-blue eyes is quite simple. The basis of the make-up will be a combination of nude shades of shadows and one bright accent. In this case, the emphasis can be made not only on the lips, but also added to the eye makeup.
The main thing for daytime makeup is a good preparation of the skin for further makeup application. It includes the use of moisturizer, corrector, BB cream, concealer, foundation, powder and blush or bronzer.
