Makeup Ideas For Blue Eyes

The Color Combination That Will Make Blue Eyes Pop

Although Cate Blanchett usually veers towards the neutral end of the makeup spectrum, she opted for flushed salmon on cheeks and lips at last night's The Hobbit premiere. The addition of warm, rosy tones made her blue eyes seem brighter, and it's all because of the color wheel.

Blue sits directly across from orange and red on the wheel, meaning those hues complement each other. So if you're looking to make your cerulean gaze take center stage, bust out orange-tinged, pinky-red shades, whether they're swept on eyes, cheeks, or lips. Salmon is an ideal pick because it's a perfect mix of orange and pink. Try MAC Lip and Cheek Color in Out for Fun ($20) for a natural glow that gives beautiful blues bottomless depth.
