The One Thing Girls With Blue Eyes Should Never Do

Brown eyed girls have it so good. First, they have a Van Morrison song dedicated to them. Second, they can wear pretty much any eyeshadow shade or liner type. Blue eyes–not so much.

“Blue eyes are very sensitive – they’re easily affected by too much makeup or the wrong colors, so you have to be careful!” Birchbox makeup artist Shain Kish warned when I begged him for advice on what to wear on mine. Shain is sort of like the unofficial SHEfinds makeup guru. What would we do without him?

Black is almost always too harsh for blue eyes,” he explained. “I recommend opting for warm colors with a little shimmer.”

His favorites? “I like to add a light champagne colored shimmer all over the lid (rms beauty™ cream eye polish in Lunar is a pro favorite). Finding the right blend-able eyeliner is key. I like the Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner in Metallic Plum and the MAKE Gel Eyeliner Pencil in Very Brown.”

Amazing! I am ordering these products from Birchbox stat (seriously, Shain knows what he is talking about! So–how to use them? “I softly smudge the eyeliner directly along the lash line. To top it all off, I add a rose or pale gold shimmer to the waterline of the eye. Blue eyes are naturally really bright – these techniques help carry that light throughout your whole eye look.”
