Ahh, to be a blue-eyed babe. Ladies with sapphire irises should keep their, ahem, eyes open for gray-blue undertones, according to Perdis. "If you really want to play up the blue, try mauve shadows. It brings out the blue and will make you look irresistible."
A Plum Arrangement
Use two purple-based shades to create dimension against water-colored eyes. Perdis recommends liberally applying the lighter shade all-over the lid and up to the brow bone. Use the darker plum tint to create dimension where the eye socket is naturally deepest.
