How To Do Eye Makeup to Make Blue or Green Eyes Pop!

How To Do Eye Makeup to Make Blue or Green Eyes Pop!

How To Do Eye Makeup to Make Blue or Green Eyes Pop! Take a look at a color wheel. To make any color pop, select the color on the opposite end of the spectrum! So for blue eyes, that means orange (or coppery brown) and for green eyes, that means purple, plum and burgundy. This is a bold dramatic eye look, perfect for a night on the town! Product Info at

Always start with a good moisturizer. I used Oil of Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream.

Primer keeps the shine down and makes foundation last all day. If I am shooting, I like a good High Def Foundation and have used Smashbox High Definition Healthy FX for years.

Amazing Concealer in Medium Golden does a great job on under eye circles as well as any red spots (that seem to take forever to fade away) applied with a small concealer brush. NYX Dark Circle Correcting Concealer fixes those under eye circles with an orange tone and for really dark circles, I break out the Joe Blasco Orange Highlight 1.

Off camera face powder, just to knock down shine on a daily basis? Neutrogena Rice Powder. On camera I prefer the e.l.f. HD Powder.

Nars Orgasm/Laguna Blush/Contour Duo. And sometimes, you just want the Orgasm. Yeah. I went there.
MAC Amber Lights Eye Shadow (hereโ€™s the refill if you make your own palette.) A coppery/peachy brown with shimmer.

MAC Sketch Eye Shadow (and the refill). Burgundy with red shimmer. Product Info and Links at

MAC Beauty Marked (and the refill). Black-Red with a bit of sparkle.

MAC Eye Pencil in Strong Willed. Deep eggplant.

MAC Haute and Naughty Black Mascara.

Smashbox Photo Finish Lipstick in Delightful is my favorite sheer plum (unfortunately, I donโ€™t think they make this shade anymore, so if you find it, hang on to it!) Lโ€™Oreal Honey Peach lipstick has really become a fave since going gray. Product Info and Links at

    Gorgeous. So glad to hear someone using mascara on the lower lashes. Going without may be fine if you have dark hair/complexion but if you're a blonde or redhead, not so much, as the saying goes. That said, I think you looked beautiful without any of the eye makeup. For an evening event it would be fine but honestly, your eyes pop all by themselves.

    Beautiful! I'm a big fan of your makeup and hair tutorials. Love this example of how to highlight blue or green eyes. I have boring hazel eyes, but will try using the plum and amber shades to hopefully bring out the green, in my hazel eyes. Have one small complaint. What's with the morose music you play in the background? It sounds like a funeral dirge. You been makin' too many horror movies girly? Love you <3

    Monique , I promise you , you can wear blue eyeshadow and look Fabulous. There are a couple of things you should do . Firstly make sure you line your upper lash line , inner and above with black kohl . Secondly make sure all your other make up is warm toned ie coral blush and lip (no pink tones) and no shimmery highlighter on your cheekbones or eyelids .

    I happened upon one of your videos one day while searching for "going gray" info and I've been hooked ever since. I NEVER make these kinds of comments, I just don't, but you just come across as such a lovely person in looks and in heart. I just had to say that you've really made an impact on me. I'm almost 56 and I've really stopped doing much with makeup or anything in the past few years because I've thought, what's the use? But after watching several of your videos, I've got a renewed interest in "fixing up" as I call it. Thanks so much for all of the tips and sincere, down-to-earth talk on your videos. I really have a new role modell and it's you. I'll never look as good as you do, but I definitely will be looking better than I have in recent years. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Stop putting white people down. This trend is pathetic. Save the 50 shades of gray heavy liberal marketing, self destruction, and the sado-masochism for your private time if you can't help yourself. Every person on earth should have pride in their good accomplishments and that includes whites. Every country on the planet wants the lifestyle western cultures have created. Stop the self destruction.

    I really enjoyed this tutorial! I learned a lot, too! Now I have a question, What do you think is the best way to hide/erase wrinkles around the mouth and nose? Yes, I am desperate and would use Botox if I knew it worked! Thank you. You have made "getting older" seem not so scary anymore.

    Copper is stunning on green eyes, or blue-green like yours. I only got it because it I like matching my eyeshadow to my outfits and I wear a lot of red, and since lighter, shimmery colors suit me best, this was the best match. But I realized it brought out my green beautifully. And it does make your blue-green pop, they look stunningly aqua like your top here. Maria

    So could you use this same technique for day time, but with lighter colors? I love the technique but feel those colors would be too stark on my complexion… at least for a daytime look.
