Allure Magazine suggests a girl with blue eyes should wear purple, orange, brown or gold eye shadows, and only use beige-colored eye brightening pencils. SheKnows is of the opinion that brunettes look best with red or coral-colored lip and cheek makeup, and that they should wear bronzing makeup on their cheeks.
Allure Magazine advises that blue eyed girls should try out purple eye shadow or eye liner. Colors like amethyst and royal purple accentuate blue eyes. A smoky eye design incorporating rich brown and gold colors looks better than one made with common black and gray hues. These colors go well with the rich, deep hues recommended for brunettes by SheKnows magazine. For those who use an eye-brightening pencil, a beige-colored pencil is better than a white one. This can be combined with bronze cheek makeup. Bronzing makeup with a rosy-colored blush on the cheeks produces a striking effect.
Orange eye shadow on blue eyes creates an interesting effect because orange and blue are contrasting colors on the color wheel. Spicy red colored lips look great on a girl with dark brown hair, and this should be lightened to coral to suit women with light brown hair. Ideally, the colors should be both complementary and distinct, accentuating each feature without making one dominant.
