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!

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.

I have reddish hair and hazel eyes and after a long search, purchased Nars Nepal. I ignored it initially because of the way it looked in the case but it's a rosy or pinky beige - it brightens up my eyes. I found that there are hundreds of pink eyeshadows but few were close to what I was looking for if I didn't want my shadow to look white or pink. I'm also learning that any color name with the word copper and/ or bronze in it looks ok. Good luck!

Hi,

I love all the NARS purple shades - darks, lights, lavender - and also Tropic would be really fun.

If you're near a Sephora, go in and ask for help or even a makeover. I've been surprised by some of the consultant suggestions over the years that have turned out be unexpected and really effective. Sometimes they suggest things I'd never consider, and they're right. In fact, the Sephora staff introducted me to the Orgasm line, which I now love. I used to stray from peach colors and stayed more toward pink, but they showed me all that I was missing.

Hope this helps.

Are you asking about eye shadows? I'll assume you are.... As a red head with green eyes, I find that if you use a seashell color as your highlighter under the brow and a brown shade in your crease, you can use a variety of colors on the lid. For instance, I used a pretty blue-green shadow with an eye pencil called black jade and boy did my eyes pop. Did this help?

Play around with warm colors - peach and apricot, olive and sage green, champagnes, golds, and coppers, maybe even a smoky turquoise that leans more toward green than blue. A rose or pink would probably work for you too, as long as it has warm undertones. Play play play, it's still the best part about "makeuping" :)

With green eyes, try a purple- definitely! Lighter for day time, but go deep for evening. Also, try the badgal lash in plum. You can use it over black for a deeper color, but it will make your eyes shine.

Hi,

I have brown eyes too and obsessed over which NARS shade to get. Here's my conclusions:

I really wanted to go with one of the gold infused NARS amethyst/violet/purple based shadows when I was previously trying to create a certain look because those shades make brown eyes pop. Violets/plums/purples are hot colors for summer and I was set on finding the right NARS shade. Night Rider (which is a soft purple with silver glitter) is perfect for evening versions of the look I wanted to create although I was really impressed with Night Fairy and Strada, both of which had gold in them in some form or other. If you're looking for a purple shade of shadow, check all three out - each is beautiful in its own right. There's also D. Gorgeous which is a matte dusty lilac, but that shade wasn't available the day I was trying to make my purchase. When I tried the tester D.Gorgeous looked so beautiful on my wrist and is perfect for daytime.

That said, I eventually ended up with Night Rider because I needed it right away. Night Rider which is beautifully pigmented. It applies so easily and looks wonderful with a violet liner. Night Rider can be used with or without a primer. It really doesn't need one unless you have some problems with your lids. It stays perfectly in place without using one. The color is rich and vibrant, and using it with just purple liner and black mascara this is a huge change from a smoky or smudged eye. The thing I've noticed, while I was trying this out, is that my eyes look a lot bigger and more open with this more simple look. Night Rider can be used wet or dry. I haven't tried it wet. It's fine just as it is. It has a nice feel to it, too, as compared to other shadows. I love this shadow. There's some really beautiful shades in this color family.

Hope this helps.

I love Strada paired with the NARS duo Sugarland, which has two shades that can layer or accent the gorgeous golden sheen of Strada. I also like to layer NARS single cream shadows underneath their powder shadows. I have both Cosmic Girl and El Dorado. Of the two, Cosmic Girl underneath Strada seems to accentuate the gold more discreetly, while El Dorado gives a bronzed purple, at least on my skin. I also agree with Buenrosa; if you pat Strada on as opposed to sweeping it across the lids, it really keeps its in-the-pan purple-gold gorgeousness.

I use it in contrast with another color that is more rich- highlighting either just my crease or the small triagle inside my crease. It really brightens and opens your eye. This may not be the exact look you are looking for but I love it!

Use a really good eye lid primer (Try Too Faced Shadow insurance or Urban Decay's Primer Potion). I found that the gold sheen/sparkle in Strada will last longer when you pack it on your lid (tap - tap - tap motion). If you move the brush from side to side (like windshield wiper motion), the sheen will not show up as much.

To Courney Maret,

Oh My ..we could be twins!! LOL!! Our coloring (eyes, skin and hair sound identical)
Thanks for the help. I agree, at the makeup counter first shade they go for is BROWN! Uggh, enough already!
I also agree with Purple not looking as good as it use to. I have no idea why it doesn't (?) I thought maybe I was just getting tired of wearing the shade.
I have used Nars blushes but, I have never used Nars eyeshadows. What Nars shades in Pink do you like the best (name?)

Thanks

I've got light blond hair and a pale, yellow/pink complexion (yes, both) with eyes that are dark blue on the outer rim yet greenish blue in the main part of the iris and yellow right next to the pupil. And I've found, especially as I get older (I'm 32) that soft, slightly shimmery pinks are the way to go on the lid. I love Nars for the range of pinks I can find that have some shimmer to make my eyes stand out and bring out the light in them. I use a soft baby pink with flecks of silver on my eyelids and a burgundy in my crease and at outer upper lash line. I dust a bit of mauve in the crease to lid area too on the outermost section of my eye (to sort of wing them up a bit). The range of pinks helps bring out the blue in my eyes and compliments the green and the same time. I've tried orange shades (soft, not wild) thinking that would make the blue of my outer iris pop but I look dead, I wore purple shades when I was younger but as I get older it doesn't look good somehow. I look washed out. I hate, hate, hate browns on my eyes, which is always what make up counter girls reach for when I've had makeovers (they see blue/green eyes and light blonde hair and think brown is the answer - it is not!) Basically everything fails but pinks in the right shades and in the right places. It's not my go-to look and I play with the intensity of color when I want to go from day make up to rich, bold nighttime looks. I finish with the tiniest touch of black liner (mostly to fill in between the lashes since they are a bit light brown and kind of sparse) and black or black/brown mascara. Nars is by far my favorite line of shadows for the wear, rich color, and shimmer added.

IT WILL GIVE YOU THE LOOK OF A WIDER EYE AND THE SHADOW WILL MAKE YOUR HAZEL EYES POP!!! GOOD LUCK
