Makeup Tips: Blue Contact Lenses
- Go for warm tones: Warm shades like peach, bronze, and coral can really make blue eyes pop. Use these shades in your eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick to create a warm and flattering look.
- Experiment with navy blue: Navy blue is a great alternative to black eyeliner for blue eyes. It's softer and less harsh, but still defines your eyes beautifully. Try using a navy blue eyeliner or mascara to enhance your eyes.
- Try a champagne or gold eyeshadow: Champagne and gold eyeshadows are perfect for blue eyes. They add a touch of warmth and shine to your eyes, and make them look brighter and more awake.
- Use a light-handed approach: Blue eyes are already striking, so you don't need to go overboard with your makeup. Use a light hand when applying eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick to create a natural and understated look.

Makeup Tips: Green Contact Lenses
- Play with complementary colours: Since green is opposite to red on the colour wheel, shades like cranberry, rust, and burgundy can really make green eyes pop. Try incorporating these colours into your eyeshadow or eyeliner.
- Add a pop of purple: Purple is another colour that can really complement green eyes. Try a purple eyeshadow or eyeliner to bring out the green in your eyes.
- Try a metallic eyeshadow: Metallic shades like gold, bronze, and copper can add depth and dimension to green eyes. Apply a metallic eyeshadow to the centre of your eyelid to make your eyes sparkle.
