After consulting with many makeup mavens and experts, I've discovered that it takes more than just one color to make blue eyes bold. The perfect palette is hard to come by, but I've found a few that get the job done well. Each of these include three to five shades of just the right blue hues to perfectly enhance your eyes.
The lightest neutral shade is the accent color that should go just beneath your brow-bone, the medium color should be swept all over your lid and the darkest gets applied to the crease.
Pop Beauty Eye Cake in Blue Eyes, $19, is a gorgeous palette consisting of five different colors designed to bring out the pop in your blue eyes. The colors are smooth in texture and rich in pigment and will draw oodles of attention to your eyes. Consider yourself warned baby!
