@Purple_Bride:  Purple look very pretty and can actually blend in with Blue eyes- what are your wedding colors? I realize purple sounds scarey, but I had purple for my makeup and i really don’t think you see PURPLE 🙂

@Purple_Bride:  Browns and golds are your friends! I have light blue eyes and those colors will make the eyes POP. Purples would work if our eyes were more green than blue. If you can, I would speak with a cosmetologist.

@Purple_Bride:  True that browns and golds go with blue eyes, but I still think purples.  Regrdless, I think the other responder is right to have you consult with a professional.  TRY both.   Regardless of the color, you’re going to need a lot of good makeup done well to show nicely in photos.  It’s AMAZING the amount of makeup that you need yet it doesn’t show like a lot in photos on the BIG DAy.

@Purple_Bride:  I’m going to disagree with a PP saying purple.  I have brown eyes and purple is what I use to make my eyes pop. I think that you should stick with natural browns (gold tone, maybe pink base) and use black liner (not too thick, but the black will make the blue pop).  Here are some examples:

Maybe less glittery?

This one is my fave – it’s very natural and fresh.  That’s what you should ask for.

Copper, browns, golds and taupes are your friends. Purple will clash and do nothing for your pretty eyes! You want to use a contrasting color (orangy-browns/coppers for blue, purples for GREEN) to make your eyes pop!

@musician32992:  Disagree, the right shades of purple do not clash with blue eyes. While I think bronze, golds and other browns make blue eyes POP more, they definitely do not clash with purple. I often use smokey purples when I want a more sublte smokey eye (dark greys and blacks are way too much for my very fair complexion) and I have blue eyes. I’ve actually gotten a lot of compliments while wearing purple shadows.

Browns, golds, coppery colors looks really good with blue eyes!

I’m blue-eyed too and I love using browns and golds. A brown smoky eye (like some of the other ladies have posted) would look divine!

Neutrals! Browns, golds, some sandy pinks work best!

I love the “bombshell” makeup look that VS models wear.  I don’t have blue eyes but I think it’s so subtle and sexy on everyone.
