Best lipstick colors for blue eyes

Blue-eyed ladies have some fabulous and flattering options in lipstick colors. Whether you’re a blonde, brunette or redhead, those baby blues are an outstanding feature and make your face the focus. Play up the attention with just the right shade smoothed onto your lips.

Most women with blue eyes look great in pink tones. From the softest wash of pale pink to more vibrant raspberry tones, rosy lips are complementary to blue eyes. Look for a variety of colors and formulas: glossy shine and matte creams in a deep pure rose, strawberry or bubblegum pink. Sheer pinks are pretty and appropriate for casual days or the office.

Lilac shades are nice for you, too. Try a mauve or soft plum color, and see how it flatters and enhances your eye color. Corals with a strong pink base will work for you; just steer clear of orange-ish tones.

In the red zone

Red revs up blue eyes, and there’s a red for every woman. When she wants to bring the drama, the blue-eyed girl selects a bold, true red with blue undertones. Remember: When you make such a strong statement with your lip color, you must tone down your other makeup.

Lining up

Consider lining your lips for more definition, to keep your lipstick where it belongs, and to keep it from seeping into small mouth lines. Many lipsticks have companion lip liners in the same shade; matching the two is always preferable.
