    Eye shades:

    Using make-up tactfully is the best way to make your eyes pop. You can use the make-up to set your eyes in a way that makes heads turn.

    Shades apposite in color wheel: Use shades that are apposite in the color wheel to accentuate your blue color and make it stand out due to the contrast. Bronze is known as the universal shade for blue as it is next to orange, which is apposite to blue on the color wheel. Peach and pink do as good as bronze if your complexion is fair. You can also use neutrals like golden and warm browns for the same effect.

    Blue on blue: You can also go blue on blue, not because of the matching theory but because blue shades on blue eyes increase their effect and give them the pop out feel. If you are applying the blue on blue, keep the eye liner thick and go light on the rest of the face so that your eyes get all the attention they deserve.

    Eye liner:

    The shade of your eye liner also effects how your eyes look. Choose a brown liner to make the eyes to stand out because the colors are in contrast. Alternatively go for a blue one if you want to further enhance your blue eye color. Dip the brush in to the liquid and start lining your eye lids with the tip of the brush, starting from the outside end of your eyes and moving in to the middle. If you are using strong color shades apply a thin liner, but if you are using light ones, apply a thick liner.

    Rest of the face:

    To make sure your eyes remain the center of attention, make all the efforts on them and keep the rest of the face light. Use subtle colors  like pink and peach for the cheeks. Use coral and peach for the lips and cheeks if you are using golden and brown for the eyes. However, if you are using a light shade for the eyes, use a heavy liner and a bold color on the lips like red.
