There’s no denying that blue eyes can be striking, especially when paired with the right makeup. Whether baby blue or deep and dramatic, blue eyes have the power to sparkle and pop with a good swipe of shadow. Here are your go-to shades if you’ve got baby blues:


If you have baby blue or deep ocean-tinted eyes, the best colours for you include classic matte neutrals like browns (like our Velvet Eyeshadow in Hazelnut). You can also explore beige and taupe, which will really contrast and complement beautifully. 


All shades of pink highlight blue eyes well. A soft metallic shade like Velvet Eyeshadow in Rose Quartz will work well for a subtle look and bold fuchsia tones work to intensify cool blues.


To brighten blue eyes, look for warm tones that are complementary. Play with golds, coppers, and bronzes.

Berry and Plum

Warm hues of purple, like eggplant, plum and berry, are very flattering for blue eyes because their red tones bring out blues. Try our Velvet Eyeshadow in Berry Bronze.


To intensify the colour of blue eyes, choose matching cool tones, such as blue (Velvet Eyeshadow in Sky), turquoise, and even grey and silver.
