Make-up tips: How to highlight those beautiful blue eyes

Gorgeous celebrities like Zooey Deschanel, Nicole Kidman, Megan Fox and Rooney Mara all have one thing in common: their bright blue eyes.

And choosing the right make-up for their eyes involves more than just picking out their favorite shade.

For the most complementary look, the colour of your eyes should always be taken into account. 



From smoky and sultry to fun and flirty, eye make-up can transform your whole look. 

Here we'll show how to make the most of your blue eyes:

Enhancing fair eyes

In general, when it comes to highlighting fair eyes, it's best to avoid more intense tones, such as black.

This colour, despite being the most common, can be too strong and forward. Browns and greys are more becoming in terms of both eye-liners as well as mascaras.

Also, if you don’t have very marked bags under your eyes, you can try using a deep violet mascara, which naturally enhances all blue shades.

Which shades go well?

In any case, you must always blend the colours very well and try not to let them steal the attention away from your eyes; a common error.

A colour that complements blue eyes is mink brown, a greyish earthy brown tone that’s very similar to that of the skin. All you need to do is apply a layer of a very light colour on the eyelid and a very fine line just at the root of the bottom eyelashes.

For a more intense effect, try a dark brown, making sure, though, that it's not a reddish or terracotta tone, which gives fair eyes a tired and irritated look.

It's best to apply this tone moderately, bordering the eye with a line close to the root of the eyelashes, but again, do it very lightly.
