Cruelty-Free Makeup for Blue Eyes
Today I’m sharing cruelty-free makeup for blue eyes – an eyeshadow tutorial to make your blue eyes pop. My eyes are blue-green, so depending on what colors I wear they look more blue or more green. Rarely, they will look grey or teal.
Normally, I don’t wear an all-shimmer eyeshadow look because I have hooded eyes. However, I thought I’d break the rules and give it a try with the Geek Chic Doggo set. The Doggo set is made up of 6 eyeshadows that work well together with Doin’ Me a Frighten (bright purple), Mlem (peachy rose), Smol Pupper (beige mauve), Heck (brown with mint shift), Bork (highly reflective bronze), and Bamboozled (complex brown duochrome).

Deep browns, beiges, and chocolate browns can really help to enhance blue eyes. Deep browns like Urban Decay Thunderbird are gorgeous. Golds, bronzes and coppers work too.

Yes, you can even make blue eyes pop when you wear certain shades of purple, like this red-toned purple. See my tutorial.
Makeup for Blue Eyes Tutorial
While brown eyeshadow is not my personal favorite, I know most people love it, so I created the tutorial below using brown eyeshadow for blue eyes. This eyeshadow shape is excellent for hooded eyes but you can adapt it to all eye shapes.
Be sure to prime your eyes with eyeshadow primer and then set with translucent setting powder. I use medical tape to help me get a nice clean edge but if you don’t like tape you can always clean up with a pointed q-tip later.
1. Use a fluffy brush to apply Geek Chic Bork to the crease.
2. Smudge Makeup Geek Corrupt through the roots of the upper and lower lashes. Doesn’t have to be neat.
3. Use a shader brush to apply Geek Chic Bork to the lower lid.
4. Deepen outer crease with Geek Chic Bamboozled.
5. Mix Makeup Geek Corrupt with Geek Chic Heck and apply to outer V, then blend it out.
6. Pat Geek Chic Smol Pupper on the lid, inner lower lid, and under the eyebrow to highlight. Finish with Mascara.
