Blue eye girls

Products used: MUA Glitter Ball, Rituals: Peach Glow, Boots 17: Gold

Sorry for the lack of posts lately I have been very busy with work and enjoying the summer (yes i know... what summer?). On Thursday I took a trip down to London to see the Olympic marathon swimming in Hyde Park and honestly It was amazing! I've uploaded some pictures onto my Facebook page if you want to take a look! The link is located in my sidebar.

Now I know this is nothing new for most of you, but I thought I would share with you how to make blue eyes really 'pop'. My eyes are one of my favourite features but I rarely wear eye make-up to show them off, when I do wear eye make-up however I always reach for browns and peachy orange shades. Orange is a great way to make blue eyes stand out! My eyes aren't the brightest of blues so I really like to use make-up to emphasise them. 

1. Use a brown smoky eye as a base for this look, brown looks great against blue eyes. 

2. On the creases of your eyes use a peachy or orange tone to brighten eyes. 

3. I then added a gold shimmer shadow on the outer corners of my eyes to complete the look, although you can skip this step if you want a more wearable day time look. 

How do you make your eyes stand out? Do you have a favourite feature you like to make the most off?

  7. i have blue eyes too and think using brown eye liner in the water line also really enhances the colour :) i read in your side thingy that your a freelance journalist and i'm hoping to do something like that in the future, so I was wondering what advice you would give as I know it can be pretty competitive?xxxxx

  14. Loving your makeup! I love the pallets you use and that gold 17 looks amazing! I use bright colours a lot and I tend to put concealer on first to make the colour seem sharper and I also use a bit of white eyeliner to make the colour pop.
