Winter 2012-13 Descends With Rainbow Colours for Eyes
recently published emerald green, peacock blue and ruby red - shown
on the eyes of the models during the autumn/winter 2012-13 shows.
An arresting blend of purple, green and gold eye shades are there to
give the classic smoky eye a new lease of life, along with a flash
of colour in the form of electric blue mascara.
Choosing a blue shade to match your skin and eye colour
It is important to coordinate your eye shadow with your
clothing, as well as you actual eye and skin color. Then only will
there be a right impact.
With brown eyes, you
can use blue eye shadow, and if you have gold flecks in your eyes you may
want to try an eye shadow that has a gold shimmer to it.
If you have green eyes pop
them up, by wearing various purple shades of eye shadow.
With blue eyes, stay
far away from blue eye shadow. If you want you eyes to pop and look
mesmerizing then try wearing earth-tones, such as browns with a slight
purple base. The best would be a gray, violet
or purple color on the lower/mid lid of your eye and a light taupe, cream on
the upper lid of your eye, blending the colors where they meet. A deeper
blue (darker than your eye color) mixed with a gray will provide a smoky
If you want a
dramatic look, then find a greyish-blue eyeliner and
pick a light shade of grey for the upper and lower lid of your eye and a
darker shade of grey (or greyish-blue) for the middle.
Gradually introduce yourself to a blue
eye liner. Sapphire eyeliner is light enough to be distinctively blue
while being dark enough to pair with more conservative outfits or occasions.
Once you’ve worn bright eyeliners a few times then you can wear almost any
shade o’ crazy. Keep the liner simple (a single line) and pair it with a
brown or beige shadow.
The shades for blue
mascara can be anything from
navy to bright blue shades. It can help emphasize blue or grey eyes and make
the whites of the eyes look whiter making your eyes look deep and
irresistible. Women with green eyes, brown eyes and hazel eyes can also use
blue mascara. But don't forget to choose the perfect blue shade mascara that
can highlight the color of your eyes in a very wonderful manner.
Orient (mixes a purple with gray) and Pacific (mixes deep blue and light
taupe) are great for everyday. On the other hand, if you want a look like
you aren't wearing any make-up, then go for a blue with a white color that
blends for a subtle look.
One thing that you need to keep in mind is eye-shadow should compliment your eye
color and it shouldn't contrast with your clothing. That is, avoid wearing a
purple based eye shadow on your blue eyes while you are wearing a coral toned
shirt. Try to keep your clothing and eye shadow in the same or color family, or
at least a complimentary family.
Always pick a soft color for the entire eye area up to the brow bone &
then use the darker color only up to your eye's crease.
Make sure to use a professional brush and blend well into the eye.
Use a bois de rose blusher (certainly
nothing too red) and lipsticks in
cool shades so that the shade goes well with the cool tone of blue eye
shadow and mascara. Pinkish, indigo and plum type shades lipsticks work best
with blue color.
Blue is a color that symbolizes boldness. So, be sure to exude
confidence when you opt for blue.
Wear accessories that will help bring attention to your eyes. With blue
eye make up, you can opt for an indigo scarf, deep blue earrings or a hair
pin in matching blue shade. But don’t do overdo it. Wear minimum
If you are using blue mascara on all the lashes, use navy blue eyeliner.
Black liner with blue lashes doesn’t tend to look good.
