We all recall an auntie or old school teacher with midnight blue cemented from the lash line up to the eyebrow (not a good look).
Whether you want to channel angelic goddess or ultimate sass, there is guaranteed to be a hue to fit.
Some may say that blue hue on blue eyes is a no-no – this couldn’t be more wrong. Choose a soft misty blue and your eyes will pop! If blue isn’t for you, opt for neutral soft tones such as champagne and pale pinks which will enhance your eye colour. Try to avoid darker or more abrasive colours as this distract from your own hue.
