Terra-Cotta Shadow

Layering your lids with a rust-colored shadow, like CoverGirl Queen Collection 1-Kit Eye Shadow in Fire It Up, is the quickest way to draw attention to blue eyes. "The warm color makes eyes stand out," says makeup artist Meredith Baraf, who regularly uses this trick on her blue-eyed clients Adriana Lima and Doutzen Kroes.

Purple Shadows

For a trendy fall color, opt for purple over emerald or cobalt. "Blue eyes can get lost in blue and green shadows," says Baraf. "But purple shadows help accentuate them." Put the focus on them with a shimmery palette like Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Amethyst Glam. The amethyst and royal purples can be used as allover shadows or concentrated as liners.

Orange Shadow

It sounds crazy, but orange eye shadow will set your blue eyes ablaze. "Blue and orange are directly opposite each other on the color wheel, so it creates a strong contrast," explains eye makeup designs for blue eyes Baraf. Try a thin line of Rimmel London Eyeful Eye Glistener in Flaunt on your upper lash line. Then, when you're feeling bolder, sweep Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Mediteranee, a flattering burnt orange shade, on your lids. Need inspiration? Blue-eyed stars Scarlett Johansson and Fergie have both worn this look on the red carpet.

Neutral Smoky Eyes

Black smoky eyes might be a classic, but they tend to overshadow blue eyes rather than enhance them. Soften your look with a neutral palette of rich browns, golds, and light pinks instead. Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Spices offers a customizable palette of subtly sexy colors for a smoky eye that works.

Bronze Shadow and Liner

Eye-Brightening Beige

Using a highlighter on the inside lower lash line is the oldest trick in the book for making eyes appear bigger. But women with blue eyes should skip white highlighters. "They tend to look unnatural and kind of dirty," says Baraf. Instead, choose a soft, beige pencil (like Chanel Le Crayon Khôl in Clair) that will brighten eyes naturally.

Turquoise Liner and Navy Mascara

It might seem counterintuitive, but women with blue eyes should avoid blue shadow. "You see the eye shadow before you see the eye," says Baraf. But if you can't bear to part with the shade, use it strategically. A bold turquoise liner, like Nars Larger Than Life Liner in Abbey Road, helps accentuate bright blues. And navy mascara, like Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara in Blue, is a subtle way of bringing out blue tones in gray or greenish-blue eyes.
