Ask Donna

Dear Donna,

Q: What is the best color eye shadow for blue eyes?

A: I’m always being asked the best eye shadow colors for baby blues. Fortunately, it’s easy-peasy to perk up naturally gorgeous blue eyes ‘cause you can play with the whole spectrum of blue shades. A shade that’s close to that of your own beautiful peepers will give you the most natural look and is fab for every day. If you want to go sexy (If? No doubt you want to go sexy once in a while!), go a shade darker. For a more whimsical look, go a shade lighter than your eyes.

But, remember, you don’t have to be married to blue. Shadows with a subtle orange base (keep away from clown-like oranges gals), will help make your eyes pop. Top with a little medium brown in the crease of your eyelid, blend it well, and watch while the one you love gets lost in all that blue fusion.

Above all, don’t be afraid to experiment. Remember, it’s only makeup, not a commitment….
