Now let’s move on to the shades you’ll need to avoid.
Colors to Avoid for Blue Eyes
Avoid tone-on-tone! Steer clear from blue and green eyeshadows. A color that’s too close to your own irises makes your eyes look small and scrunched. But if you absolutely have to try it out, go for a blue smoky eye with a shade that is darker than your own. A combo of blue and silver, or blue and gold, creates an immediate and dazzling effect.
Got gray-blue eyes? Than you can definitely go for bluish tones if you apply them with a gradient effect.
Our simple makeup tip : If you want to make your eyes look bigger, add just a touch of light to the inner corner of your lid. With the ALL TIGERS gold, silver, or pink eyeshadows, you’ve got bright, shining eyes. You will be the epitome of glamour and style.
