Like blue, Landis says indigo shadow looks best against fair skin and brown hair. Even though Heidi Klum is not a brunette, check out her gorgeous indigo eye shadow.
“I would use blue, indigo and violet on the top lids – start off with a light blue in the inner corner, and gradually get to the deeper purple on the crease (keep it soft),” says Shachi Phene, a senior at Bates College. “Then, I’d do a pop of like a bright, lime green on the bottom lid, curl the lashes and add mascara.”
“Applying a little bit of a light/sparkly version of colored eye shadow to the inner corner of your eye can help to brighten and illuminate your eyes,” says Kelsey Thorn, a HC Design and Media Team Associate. “With true blue eye colors, I’ve seen the same with a bit of blue and even violet/indigo in the inner corner (really just a dab), and it helps highlight the eye and make it glisten!”
If you want to keep it simple, “[do] not use more than one bright color at a time, and place the color on the lid and in the crease and use a neutral color above,” Landis says. Or you could use an indigo eye shadow to line your eyes along the upper and lower lashlines instead of using it on your lid. Ashley Tisdale recently wore indigo eyeliner to an event in New York City, and she looked great. Indigo works for blue eyes, brown eyes and hazel eyes, so most everyone can wear it!
