Top 10 Makeup looks for Blue Eyes.

Hello there my blue-eyed beauties, I have an extra special blog today just for you! While I wasn't blessed with beautiful baby blues, I have always loved to pin and save makeup looks that really compliment those peepers and make them pop! Blue eyes aren't as common as brown and hazel, but so many eye looks make them stand out! Of course, you can use any shadows that you like, but keep in mind that certain colors will really make your eyes seem more vibrant. So, I will be sharing with you 10 of my absolute favorite eye makeup looks that will really compliment your eyes and make you look and feel like a goddess. Details of products as well as links to the photo's and tutorials will be provided below each look . I hope you lovelies enjoy!

 

  1. Rust and gold smokey eyes

This beautiful look takes the boldness of a rust colored shadow with the

glow of gold and combines them into a smokey look that really gives

your blue eyes a pop to die for. You can add a wing for more of a bold

look, or just apply some straight shot liner for a beautiful look that is not

so drastic.

2. Neutral Smokey Eye.

This may be the most simple way to make your jewel eyes pop! We all know of many different types of neutral, natural, or nude palettes and eyeshadow colors. This is a beautiful smokey look with the brown shadow in the outer corner and throughout the crease blended into a cream shade that is applied on the inner corner. Also, a beautifully highlighted brow bone! Look at that glow!!

MAC- Antiqued ( upper crease/ outer corner)

  1. Rosey/Neutral Smokey eye.

A very simple everyday go-to look that is sure to turn heads, a light neutral rosey eye. The best part is that this eye can either be played up or played down. Use more dramatic colors, winged liner, and falsies to really make this look stand out!

  1. Beautiful Blue and White Smokey Eye.

One of my absolute favorite looks for a blue-eyed bombshell is the white/blue smokey eye. This combo reminds me of a beautiful sea goddess and is sure to keep all eyes (blue or not) on you. This is a gradient look for both the lid and lower lash line. Gasp! I can't control my excitement!!! This is way too gorgeous! You better come with a warning label if you wear this eye, "Warning: May cause broken hearts". </3

5. Turquoise Liner/ Neutral Eye

Looking for a simple and fast eye look for your blues that still make a statement? Slap on some turquoise liner on a golden neutral eye. No need in using 10 different shades of eyeshadow just to get a bold look! Still not enough for you? Add some falsies to the mix to really make it radiant! It's that simple, babes!

  1. Purple Smokey Eye

When people think about colors that actually accentuate their blue eyes, purple isn't usually the first one that comes to mind. In fact, purple is almost a conflicting color, but somehow it works and gives blue eyes a beautiful hue. Here is a totally gorg purple smokey eye for you colorful and daring darlings out there!

  1. Orange Sunrise Smokey Eyes.

Dang. You ladies can just pull off any color, can't you? Want a beautiful summer look for your blue eyes? Incorporate some orange. This gives your eyes the look of (in my opinion) an ocean against a beautiful tropical sunrise. This look has me ready to slip my bikini on!!

  1. Pink Sunset Smokey Eye.

So, while i'm in this summer/tropical mood and we already did a sunrise look, let's take a look at the sunset! WOW!! Another beautiful look for blue eyes. Unfortunately, these last two looks didn't come with products, so I am looking at my MAC collection and giving you suggested shadows instead that closely dupe these colors! Of course, you can use any dupes of your own.

Make Up Wishlist 2015

My favorite thing about Sephora’s online store is the little red heart button that you can click to “love” something. It’s become sort of an addiction for me and sometimes I’ll check my “beauty basket” which is where all the “loves” go and purchase something for myself. These are a few products that I’d LOVE to own. Price points range from expensive to affordable.

1. Kevyn Aucoin, The Contour Book $59

Kevyn Aucoin is the Holy Grail of all things make-up and contouring has become quite the popular trend for 2015. This amazing book really shows the art of contouring, defining and sculpting with make-up. I have all of Kevyn Aucoin’s books and I’d love to own some of his products. Here is a link to an article that contains some timeless beauty advice from Kevyn.

Buy it here.

2. Bite Beauty, Smashed Agave Lip Mask $26

This product is a leave-on lip mask that is infused with a lip stain. It contains lanolin, vanilla extract, natural olive fruit and jojoba oil. The tint on this particular product looks really pretty and I love that it combines lip mask with a wearable tint! Definitely going to be purchasing this product in the future.

Buy it here.

3. Urban Decay, B6 Vitamin Infused Complexion Prep Spray $33

Urban Decay makes some of the best primers and setting sprays! I have tried and love both the De-slick and All Nighter sprays and I highly recommend both of those products. The B6 spray helps to absorb oils, minimize pores and reduce redness. This prep spray has over 10,000 loves on Sephora. I am planning on purchasing this spray in the future.

Buy it here.

 

4. Make Up For Ever, 12 Flash Color Case $99

The 12 Flash Color Case comes in Neutral (shown above) and Artistic, which contains brighter colors and gold and silver. Any of the colors can be used on eyes, lips and cheeks! The reason I’d love to own this product is simple, customizable versatility. There is so much that can be done with these palettes and I love that I could create my own colors and use them how I’d like too.

Learn more about this product here.

Buy it here.

5. Tarte, Slenderizing Bamboo Contouring Brush $32

I’ve played with this brush at a make-up store and really fell in love with it. It’s super soft and the shape really allows for perfect contouring with powders. Unfortunately, I did not purchase the brush and regret it. I keep reading amazing reviews about it and I’m sure it’d work great with the Kevyn Aucoin Contouring Book!

Buy it here.

6. Dior, DIORSKIN AIRFLASH $62

I’ve seen a lot of make-up artists using spray foundations and have always be interested in try them out myself. Dior claims that this product is meant to create an airbrush effect. Out of all the spray foundations I looked into this product had some of the best reviews.

Buy it here.

 

7. Too Faced, Better Than False Lashes Extreme $35

Too Face just released this kit and it’s basically the Better Than False Lashes reformulated. I actually own the first version of this product and adore it. It has mixed reviews online but I believe that it’s because it is a tricky product to use. Once you learn how to use it however, it’s WONDERFUL! I put this on my list because I’m curious to try the new formula and see how it works in comparison to the old.

Buy it here.

8. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Mix Masters Primary Pack $29

 

OCC’s Lip Tars are my newest obsession. I own a couple small sets of Lip Tars that include matte and gloss shades. The Lip Tars are highly pigmented little tubes or pure joy. They go on super easy and although the tubes are small, you need very little to get crazy bold lips! The primary pack is really awesome because the colors included can literally make any color you want. Just like the Make Up For Ever Flash Case, it’s customizable versatility. You can also use the Lip Tars as cheek stains. This is a picture I posted on my Instagram of me playing with the glossy Lip Tars that came with the shade Little Black Dress. I used it to create an ombre effect. After playing with the Lip Tars I want them all!

9. NARS, NARSissit Blush, Contour and Lip Palette $59

I’ve always been a huge fan of NARS but they really won me over when they created a line based on my favorite artist, Andy Warhol. All of their make-up applies so well and the packaging on all the products is really exquisite. NARsissist looks like an amazing palette and one you can just throw in your purse for on

the go!

Buy it here.

 

 10. NARS, NARS Vault $500

There is not much that needs to be said about this lovely vault. I’m completely in love with the packaging and colors in this product. Ten gorgeous shades of lipstick and ten beautiful nail polishes. I can only dream of owning this one day.

Buy it here.
