Start with the Colour Wheel

When choosing eye shadow shades that will show off your baby blues, start with the colour wheel!   

The boldest choices will be complementary colours that are directly across the colour wheel.  For blue, these will be golds, peaches and coppers.   

You can also chose a more subtle approach with an analogous colour palette, choosing colours near your primary colour.  For blue eyes, check out silver, blues and purples. 

You'll be able to find these colour picks and more in my collection,  Baby Blues.

Analogous Colour Choice: Purple and Plum

Analogous Colour Choice: Navy and Blue

Just because you have blue eyes doesn't mean you should avoid blue shadows!  Blue eye shadow, liner and similar shades, such as grey and silver, all work very well together.  Try using navy to line your eyes instead of black.  It will give a softer but deeper look.
