5 Eyeshadow Palettes for Blue Eyes You’ll LoveApril 05, 2019
Blue-eyed babes have likely Googled the perfect eyeshadow to wear for blue eyes a time or two — and they’ve likely come up with lots of different answers. There’s no perfect solution to this age-old question, but that isn’t to say you should abandon the color wheel either. For blue eyes we recommend sticking to neutrals, smoky shades for everyday looks and purples, blues and pinks if you want a pop of color. We’ve rounded up the best new eyeshadow palettes for blue eyes below, all of which will make your eyeshadow looks pop.
For a Sultry, Smoky Situation
Following in the footsteps of the OG Naked Palette, Urban Decay Naked Reloaded had big shoes to fill. Beauty enthusiasts wondered what would take the original’s place, and in true Urban Decay form, Naked Reloaded doesn’t disappoint. Packed with 12 new neutral shades, you can create an endless combination of eyeshadow looks — all of which look great on blue eyes. We recommend playing with shades like Distilled, Dreamweaver and Burn — shimmery, sultry hues that look great all over the lid.
For a Neutral Look
We love an all-matte palette for neutral eyeshadow looks, particularly when they come in warm, versatile hues. Every shadow is rich, pigmented and smooth — perfect for everyday use. Shades like Yodit and Kufuru are good for the crease, while brick red shades like Jamata are great for days when you want a slightly elevated look.
On the Run is one of our favorite Urban Decay Palettes of all time — there’s a wide range of shades and they’re easy to blend. Blue-eyed babes should try Urban Decay Cosmetics On the Run Mini Palette in Bailout, which features four neutral matte shades and four fun shimmers. Although the neutral shades are nice, we have our eyes on Pickup, a pale lavender transformer shade, and Vice, a deep eggplant shimmer. Try them both, you won’t regret it.
Blue on Blue
Blue eyeshadow pairs perfectly with blue eyes, so we recommend looking for a palette with at least one or two blue hues, like the Sephora Collection Sephora PRO Pigment Palette in Whimsical, an edited assortment of shades from the Sephora PRO Editorial Pigment Palette. Not only is the blue a must-have, but we also have our eyes on the bright fuchsia, too.
Pink on Blue
Pink and blue make a pretty pairing, so we recommend opting for the prettiest pink palette of them all: Urban Decay Naked Cherry. You can’t go wrong with any combination in this palette, whether you’re experimenting with Drunk Dial, a deep metallic burgundy, or Feelz, a soft matte dusty rose.
