The best shadows for blue eyes

Trying to decide what color of eyeshadows you should wear for your boudoir shoot can be a daunting task. Chances are that you have spent so much time figuring out your wardrobe, deciding what shoes should go with which outfit, tweezing, waxing, moisturizing, remembering to drink plenty of water, and (probably) freaking out, that you haven’t even thought about what to do with your makeup. And truthfully, we don’t blame you! Below I am going to break down what are the best eyeshadow colors for blue eyes. With only 8% of the worlds population having blue eyes, we know that you want to make them stand out. By no means do you have to use the below information as a rule that must be followed. But it is a great guideline for those who don’t know where to begin. Remember, when all else fails, TRUST YOUR MAKEUP ARTIST. We will only leave your face in the best of hands.

Blue Eyes: Since orange in opposite on the color wheel from blue, anything with an orange undertone will make your baby blue’s truly POP. I suggest going with bronze, copper, soft peach, and warm nude tones. You can also wear warmer purple and plum colors as these are complimentary to blue eyes but will not give the same intensity as something with an orange undertone.
