Knowing what makeup look suit your eye color or shape cannot be overemphasized. You should take your eye color into consideration before deciding on what look to wear. As a blue-eyed beauty, choosing what will complement your eyes is important. Blue eyes are colorful and very obvious therefore you need to go with neutral subtle colors that would not overshadow your eye color. This makeup guide will be concentrating on how you can pull off a natural look for your blue eyes.
Step 1: Apply Eye primer on Your Eyelids
Apply a thin layer of your primer on a flat shadow brush or the tip of your index finger and carefully blend it into each of your lids. Apply it all the way to your brow bones and under your eyes. Allow it to properly dry and absorb into the skin. Applying primer before going on to apply your makeup helps in preventing crease and allows your make up to stay longer. It also creates a smooth and flawless canvas for your eye shadows and makes their colors brighter.
Step 2: Dab Concealer under your eyes
Dark circles can overshadow blue eyes particularly when pulling off a natural look so you might want to keep them covered up to have a perfect natural look. Lightly dot small quantity of concealer under your eyes and blend it in with a makeup sponge or your fingers. You can also apply concealer over your eyelid as it also helps in getting rid of discoloration or pigmentation on the skin.
Step 3: Create a Defined Brows
Choose an eye Shadow that is the same as your eyebrow color, with the aid of a thin brush apply it on your eyebrows and brush it through with an eyebrow brush. You can also make use of a brow pencil in the shade of your eyebrow and lightly fill your brows with it, making sure you follow their natural contour. This will enhance your blue eyes more.
Step 4: Apply Your Eyeshadow
- Use a flat shadow brush to apply a matte brown shade to your lids all the way to your crease but not into the crease and blend it in.
- Apply a bronze eyeshadow above the brown matte you applied and blend the colors properly to get rid of any harsh line of demarcation.
- Buffa gold shade into your entire crease and blend it well to result in seamless natural finish.
- Lightly apply a taupe shade right above your crease and blend it until it is almost unnoticeable.
Step 5: Highlight the Inner Corners of Your Eyes
Apply highlighter on the inner corners of both eyes and blend with a makeup brush or your index finger. This will make your blue eyes look bigger and brighter. You can also make use of a neutral shimmery eyeshadow or light pencil eyeliner to achieve the same result.
Step 6: Line Your Eyes
Select light colored pencil eyeliner in beige, rose gold, white or any neutral shade as this will make your look appear more natural and would also make your eyes brighter. Use the pencil to line your upper and lower lash line lightly.
Step 7: Finishing touches
Curl your lashes to give it more volume. Clamp your eyelash curler on your upper lashes and hold it for 15 to 20 seconds. This makes your lashes appear fuller and makes your eyes more open. Then, apply two coats of mascara on your upper lash only. Since you are going for a natural look, you can choose a brown mascara shade. Your blue eyes wouldn’t be overshadowed unlike using black mascara.
