In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on some blue eye must-haves and the most flattering pigments to accentuate your baby blues. Follow along with some simple tutorials for amazing makeup looks for blue eyes that just may leave other eye colors singing the blues!

As fun as it is to get glammed up, it’s not practical for every occasion.

For those less-is-more occasions, blue-eyed beauties can accentuate their features and pop their peepers with this easy, natural look.


Blue mascara makeups watch

On the Lids:
We’re giving eyes an ultra-light colored base to make them appear brighter and more defined. Using your flat head eye shadow brush, apply Vanille all over the lid, just past the crease.

For a lovely natural eyeshadow look, select a soft matte brown or taupe that suits your complexion. Next with your Cruelty Free Smudger Brush, apply Teddy to lid and blend upwards. Buff into the brow bone to marry pigments from the two shadows.

On the face:
To enhance those mesmerizing baby blues, you don’t need a lot of makeup or foundation. Choosing a lightly pigmented cream or moisturizer may be great options for that subtle no makeup look.

Our hydrating BB Creams not only hydrate your skin and give you a lovely glow, they have buildable coverage so you have control over imperfections. If you’re looking for an ultra-hydrating option with some light coverage, our Tinted Moisturizers will leave skin with a dewy, hydrated glow.

On the cheeks:
A touch of blush is the perfect companion to a natural makeup look for blue eyes. If you want to make those stunning eyes sparkle to their full potential, go with rose or peach hues on the cheeks. We’ve dusted Copper Gold Gemmed Luminizer onto cheeks with a powder brush, then lightly dabbed dazzling Peach blush onto apples of cheeks. The result is a shimmery peach flush.

PRO-TIP: Use a blush brush and start at the apple of your cheeks, then blend up and out for the most natural finish.

On the lashes:
As an ode to our au natural look, our Dark Chocolate Maracuja Mascara plays well with the brown or taupe tones of this look. Infused with maracuja oil and lash conditioning vitamins, this luscious mascara is sure to add volume without mess, clumps, or feeling heavy. Say hello to mesmerizing baby blues and full, flirty lashes!

On the lips:
For blue-eyed beauties, you’ll want to pucker up to a kiss from a rose – the lip color you rock! From the softest wash of pale pink to more vibrant raspberry tones, rosy lips are complementary to blue eyes. For this makeup look, we’re going with Foxglove. With its pink mauve hue, this anti-aging, super moisturizing lipstick is sure to keep your lips soft and supple.


Shadow blue eyes
BLACK PLATINUM Smokey Makeup Look

Want a timeless makeup style that will wear well at the office and accentuate your best facial features – hint, hint, your blue eyes?! Enter our ever-lovely smokey eye makeup look for blue eyes!

Rather than using darker shades that can be overly heavy or too intense for work, we’re going shimmery gray with lovely undertones of blue to intensify their appearance.

On the lids:
Star light, star bright, the first star I see tonight – that will be you! Using your flat head eye shadow brush, apply Star Bright all over the lid, just past the crease. Next with your Cruelty Free Smudger Brush, start from the middle of your eyelid and layer Black Platinum eye shadow towards the outer corners of your lids. Buff upwards into brow bone to marry the two shades.

On the face:
Now it’s time to lay a lovely base for this sultry look, with a combo of our skin plumping and pore-refining Mattifying Primer and our Fruit Pigmented® Healthy Foundation. After allowing primer to absorb into newly softened skin, we’re gently buffing a single layer of our full coverage, liquid matte foundation with a kabuki brush.

For a flawless finish, set this makeup look for blue eyes with a setting powder. Our Bamboo Powder is excellent at refracting light for a soft, poreless finish. Use a fluffy powder brush to buff in extra powder for a complexion game changer.

On the cheeks:
To create most of this smokey makeup look for blue eyes, we used colors that were sultry and flirty with a touch of rosy shimmer. We’ve dusted Moonstone Glow Gemmed Luminizer onto cheeks with a fluffy with a powder brush, then lightly dabbed Chiffon blush onto apples of cheeks. The result is a shimmery peach flush!

On the lashes:
What would a classic smokey eye be without that fierce dark pigment? Using Black Tea Long Last Liquid Eyeliner, trace a line just above your lashes, past the outer corner of your eye. For a little more drama mama, add winged eyeliner with a tail that follows the natural curve of your bottom lid.

On the lips:
What better way to accentuate blue eyes than with a complementing shade of lilac? Try a mauve or soft plum colors for mauve-lous lips! For this makeup look for blue eyes, we’re going with Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick in Plume Pink. With its berry pink and mauve hues, this high pigment matte lipstick is sure to keep your lips stunning and soft.


BRONZE and Bold Makeup Look
For those blue-eyed beauties who love an eye-catching eyeshadow look, bronze or gold are guaranteed to make a statement. To nail this look, stick with warm tones like copper, bronze, coral and gold, which will be highly flattering against any shade of blue eyes.

On the lids:
When it comes to making a statement with a memorable bold eye, we’re loving a few shades in our Fruit Pigmented® Eyeshadow collection. The stars: Cinnaban (light shimmery copper) and Bronze Gold (warm gold, fit for a queen).

Sweep Cinnaban all over the lid, just past the crease. Next, use a smudger brush starting from the middle of your eyelid and layer Bronze Gold towards the outer corners of your lids.

On the face:
To make the metallic warmth of your eyes smolder, employ a mattifying foundation for your base. The Healthy Foundation formula will be your BFF when it comes to flawless everyday wear, as it’s free from harmful talc and other drying ingredients.

If your skin type is dry but you love matte makeup, prep and prime your regular foundation with our pore-refining Mattifying Primer. Next apply our Bamboo Blur Foundation, which is free of alcohols and perfect for dry skin thanks to its light feel and ultra-hydrating properties.

On the cheeks:
To truly let your natural blue-eyed beauty shine through, look for cheek pigments in the apricot, deep rose, or mauve family. To create much of this bronze and bold makeup look, we wanted to use colors that had the best of both worlds of gold and shimmer, with a hint of bronze.

We’ve dusted Copper Gold Gemmed Luminizer onto cheeks, then lightly dabbed dazzling Healthy blush onto apples of cheeks.

On the lashes:
What better way to accent a bold bronze eye than with a complementing liner and mascara? Using our deep brown Dark Chocolate Long Last Liquid Eyeliner, trace a line just above your lashes and past the outer corner of your eye. Finish off the look with our Dark Chocolate mascara.

On the lips:
Corals with a strong pink base will work for you too, but steer clear of orange-ish tones. For this makeup look for blue eyes, we’re going with Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick in Prickly Pear. With its subtle coral hues and warm undertones, this moisturizing lipstick is sure to keep your lips soft and supple.
