The right eyeliner color makes a difference when learning how to apply eyeliner: It’s always good to have an idea of what color eyeliner you should choose when you have blue eyes. Sometimes it’s a matter of trial and error but this is probably the best way to pin point your options for the perfect shades. Some of the eyeliner colors that are beautiful on blue eyes include purple, lavender, plum, taupe, gold, silver, bronze, slate, and blue. These colors can also be used on blue eyes for applying color to the lids.
Go for a Purple Eyeliner: When you think of choosing an eyeliner for yourself purple may not be the first color that comes to mind, but on blue eyes it actually looks amazing and is a great way to draw even more attention to your eyes. The reason behind this is that purple is a mix of red and blue. So if you use a purple eyeliner that has blue undertones it will most likely bring out the blue beautifully. When deciding on an eyeliner color to wear, consider going for a deeper, darker shade of purple, as this will give you the perfect contrast for the most striking eye makeup effect.
You can enhance the look of your purple eyeliner by adding a wash of a pale pink eyeshadow to the eyelids first before adding your liner. In the picture seen here a cat eyeliner in purple was done first before adding the black cat eyeliner along the top. There is also the white eyeliner pencil in the corners and waterline. This is also an eyeliner look that can double for both day and night. If you're just learning how to put on eyeliner and don’t want to go for the dramatic cat eye makeup look seen here, you can replace it with a tight liner along the lashes instead.
Another way to enhance your purple liner is to apply a soft brown eye shadow to the lids first and then add your eyeliner. Complete your eyes by curling your lashes and adding mascara.
