#HQHowTo: Eyeshadow For Blue Eyes

Last week we talked all about finding the right eyeshadow for brown eyes, and this week it’s the turn of the blue eyed babes! We often find ourselves reaching for the same eyeshadow shades day in, day out. They might be tried and tested, but take a look at what we recommend for blue eyes to really emphasise your peepers!

If you’ve been graced by the eye gods with blue eyes, you’re in luck as it can be really easy to make your eyes pop. To put it really simply, when you take a look at a colour wheel, the colour theory says that any colours opposite one another are complimentary. Using this theory, orange and earth tones will work wonders for anything from deep sea blues to icy grey-toned blues. We also recommend dusty pinks and hazy purples!

These bad boys are super pigmented already, but for an even stronger colour you can wet your brush to apply the product – that’s where the name‘Dual Intensity’ comes from! We love this fiery orange tone to accentuate blue eyes, and the lighter golden shade is perfect as a brow bone and inner corner highlight!

Are you a blue eyed babe? Are you rockin’ any of these shades? Let us know!




I'm often referred to as 'the nail girl' because I love nail art - I have over 200 bottles of nail polish at home! But I love all things beauty; especially anything neon bright or packed with glitter. Growing up, I was a bit of a nerdy kid, so playing with colourful makeup or wacky hairstyles became my creative outlet - so it's great that this has become my job! You'll spot me at the bar, probably wearing sequins, drinking a Singapore Sling.
