Shadow school – blues eyes

Shadow school – blues eyes

It’s tricky knowing which shades of eyeshadow suit which shade of eye colour, so we enlisted the help of CoverGirl’s expert make-up artist, Katherine Conyers, to offer some words of wisdom and some product recommendations for blue eyes.

Shades that suit:
According to Conyers, “coppery tones and rich browns offset blue eyes, making them appear more intense.” When selecting eyeshadow for blue eyes, Conyers hints that “it’s better to choose colours that will contrast with your natural eye colour such as shades of brown, grey, camel, taupe, dark browns, blacks, charcoal and copper. Warm shades will contrast the blue eyes, drawing attention to them.”

Ones to watch:
Avoid blue eyeshadow as it “competes with your eye colour.” If you’re really, really attached to your blue, Conyers recommends opting for “a silver/grey shadow that has touches of blue within the pigment.” This will enhance the eye colour instead of drawing away attention from it.
