GALAPAGOS! It's a bronzy-brown with gold and is amazing. I've been doing a smokey eye with it and it's stunning. I have brown eyes and normally go to green but this color is so amazing it even looks good on me! I'm sure it's crazy gorgeous on someone with blue eyes.
I have light blue eyes, too. Traditionally, browns are best to make them stand out, but I totally agree with the person who previously commented. I never would have thought of it, but deep plum / purple shades are excellent, too, as are dark greys. In NARS duos, I have Charade, which is a light mauve / dark plum duo, and Paris, which is a deep matte grey / silver duo. Both are wonderful at making blue eyes pop. I don't like any of NARS single shadow browns, but Brousse is another good duo (sable / black violet) that contains both deep brown AND purple. Good luck!

I would try thunderball (midnight blue/gray).

To make blue eyes stand out the most, u usually want to use the exact opposite clour-in ur case browns. But.....I think one of the most beautiflu versions of the smoky eye is purples, if u dont wanna go that bright u can always mix in some purply greys. So the best colour for u to get is by far STRADA, its awesome, to say the least- The real colour is way off from this swatch on the computer. It is the most beautiful purple, definatly deep enough to do a smokey eye, v. blendabe- and as a bonus is has a BEAUTIFUL gold sheen on top (which would really bring out the blue in ur eyes). The gold sheen is only visible with a heavier application, and doesnt show up when ul blend it out. But that only adds to the effect!!!! And the shade of purple has the slightest taupey grey tinge-so its tres classy. I dont think u really have to use any other shadow to make the smokey eye (just a vanilla base, and maybe a white-gold shimmer in the inside corner) The only colour of liner that works is jet black-do it thin, and rim ur eyes as well. U could always try a gray eyeliner to sofen the effect-but u gotta rim the insides- I promise, ul be the BELLE of the ball!!!!!!goodluck!

If you wanna make the pop use pink and red colors. If that sound weird just try, you'll me amazed (just use right shadow for your skin tone). I wear sometimes grey/blueish contacts and when I use this make up I hear compliments all day long.
