We may as well call this
"Reader Question Week"
as i have so many great questions coming through that i would love to answer!
"what colour is best to use on lips and eyelids to make the eyes look bluer?"
This depends on the shade of blue eyes you have.
However, as a general rule - Golden colours really make blue eyes pop!
Anything from a yellow-gold to a bronze-gold to an orange - gold.
You could use a golden bronze all over the eyelids which would be very beautiful,
especially on tanned skin.
If you're fair skinned then a lighter you could use the same shade, just a softer version.
Then highlight the inner points of your eyes with a true gold shadow.
Also line the inner rims of your eyes with a brown or even an antique gold eyeliner.
( find Antique Gold eyeliner at Make Up Store)
**If you use a gel eyeliner the colour will be much stronger & last longer. Check these out at MAC or Bobbi Brown. **
Load up with LOTS of black mascara.
If you wanted to be bolder, do a really beautiful black smokey eye with true black shadow
(not grey, BLACK!!! The blackest you can find!)
ID bare minerals had a great black eyeshadow. Shu Uemura also have a great black & even a metallic black.
Add some metallic, dark blue-black eyeshadow under the eye if you're really brave,
rim the insides of your eyes (top & bottom) with black eyeliner & really thick black mascara.
Having tanned skin will also help blue eyes look bolder.
As for lips, a really beautiful orange lipstick would be preferable.
If you don't feel comfortable wearing something so bright, then anything yellow/orange based, or even a light orange gloss should do the trick.
When lining your eyes with the eyeliners i have recommended, make sure you line the INNER RIMS & make sure you do it TOP & BOTTOM
(yes it will tickle a little)
This will help to really frame the eyes & plays a BIG part in helping the blue to stand out as best it can.
