The blue and the orange color are direct opposite colors, and no matter how crazy it might sound, but the orange will create a very strong contrast that will make your blue eyes stand out. Any shades of orange will do the job just right. When using shadows with orange undertones, you might no require dark lipsticks and too much foundation. Go light and use neutral tones even for the lipstick.

The copper shade is a mix of gold, rose, and russet brown; all of them are opposite the blue on the color wheel but that’s what makes the blue stand even more. These hues will make your eyes bluer, will give depth to your eyes, and elegance to the overall makeup look. Again, when using colors that enhance the blue eyes, let the focus stay there and use nude tones for lipstick.

When you are deciding what eyeshadow to wear today, think of pink. All shades of pink will complement the blue eyes perfectly! Yet depends on the occasion, but if you are opting for a more natural look, go for warm pink such as coral (pink with red hues can make you look tired a bit). But again, all shades of pink are welcomed for blue eyes. Since pink might not be an easy shadow to be applied and blend, replace the eyeshadow with a pink eyeliner or pencil; both will do the trick.

Brown Smokey Eyes

Brown is the shade that goes well with all eye colors. Warm browns such as light earthy tones and espresso tones, compliment the blue eyes extremely well. They will put the attention of the eye to its blue color, yet make them look natural with the shadow bringing slight depth to the eyes. For a more dramatic look, blend deeper brown tones as an eyeshadow; or a smokey eye looks, for a more flattering appearance.
