10 Makeup Products That Make Blue Eyes Pop

Updated 05/11/18

There’s something about the look of blue eyes that’s piercing, spellbinding even. Don’t believe us? Just take a look at Adriana Lima’s blue peepers and try to tell us otherwise. And while we happen to think baby blues are pretty spectacular all on their own, with a little makeup for blue eyes, you can make them all the more enchanting (if that’s even possible).

Don’t know the correct shadow shades to make your blue eyes pop? We did a little research and surveyed our blue-eyed editors for their favorite eye-enhancing shadows, as well as Honey Artist’s celebrity makeup artist Suzy Gerstein for the shadows she uses to bring out her clients’ baby blues. And lo and behold, we came up with 10 different shadow shades ranging from copper and gold to red and violet. For the best eye shadows that bring out baby-blue eyes, click through the gallery below.
