Best Makeup For Blue Green Eyes:

1. Va-Va Voom Violet:

Blue-green eyes look great with any deep shade of purple, so create a really elegant effect by sweeping a bolder, light or romantic hue of purple just on the centre of the eyelid (which means, choose the shade depending on your intended look.) Our favourites are Tarina Tarantino’s Jewel Eye Shadow Palette In Fantastical and Guerlain Ecrin 6 Couleurs eye shadow palette. With the extra warmth, both the colours make a huge difference when it helps you pop your eyes without being too loud.

Alice Eve is a British actress known for his beautiful blue-green eyes. She has heterochromia, due to which her left eye is blue, and her right eye is green.

Tip: For best results avoid smoky effect and keep your eye shadow limited to your eyelid.

2. Pretty Pink:

Ladies, if you are looking for a subtle look for your eyes, then play with the pink eye shadows. The super-femme tone deepens your blue-green eyes beautifully, and if blended right it can look refined and flawless.

Tip: Swipe a bit of Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments in Pink Rebel across your eye sockets and blend the pretty monochromatic shade well. The look is both smoky and bright, which adds up to a glamorous, ethereal look.

3. Go Bold:

There’s something magical that happens to blue-green eyes when blue hues come into play. Daunting? Well, read us out! Contrary to the rule, you can go wild with blue eye shadow on your blue-green eyes – provided that you create the right combination. That means even if you are using a color from the same family as your eyes, you could still play around by blending it with a lighter shadow!

A perfect tone that goes well with your stunning eye colour – we love Urban Decay Kiddie Pool In Ocean Blue– which will further accentuate your features. Just add different textures to both the shades. If one is glitter pick the other in matte, this will always make your eyes stand out.

4. Delicious Bordeaux:

If you are bored of the same old, heavy dark effects that can look severe on your dreamy eyes, then we would suggest you to opt for a bordeaux tone. Classy, daring and interesting in shade, bordeaux works great on blue-green eyes since it adds immense warmth and creates a softer look. Not only that the colour has the same glistening effect as brown, but less darker than your black – a colour that is so played out by everyone around! We recommend Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Eyeshadow Palette in Currant Desire for you to create a bit unexpected but sophisticated effect.

5. Beautilicious Brown:

Simplicity can be beautiful. So for the more versatile and flattering look, brown eye shadow is the key. A dash of warm Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette shade of brown can make you look edgy, but still pretty, and the color isn’t too out there! Pair the sexy eyeshade with minimal makeup and a strawberry lip.

6. Daring Berry:

For a high-voltage look, make those blue-green eyes glisten by enhancing the red undertone with a wash of cranberry on lids and a smoky black contour in the crease.

For a lovely day to night look, take this warmer undertone, like MAC Cranberry — medium-dark burgundy with a frost finish, and smudge the color evenly around the eyes. Wiggle two coats of mascara, and you’re ready to go!
