blue/green eyes, blonde hair - what color mascara, eyeliner, shadow?
I'm a natural blonde (strands varying from light to dirty blonde) and have blue eyes with some green in them. I have been trying forever to figure out what the best colors to use around my eyes are. I'm not a huge fan of eyeliner, but I would love to find the perfect mascara. What color should I go with?Any suggestions of a specific brand? And what liner and shadow would compliment? My skin is a light tan, with rosy hints. Thanks for any advice!!

on Lights, Camera, Lashes™ 4-in-1 Mascara
I have blue eyes and blonde hair as well. The eye look that looks best on me, and would work for almost any blonde haired blue eyed girl is gold on the lid, brown in the crease, a light color for highlighting in the corner of your eye and on your brow bone, black eyeliner, and black mascara. The palette I use is Urban Decay Naked3. For the lid I use Trick, for the crease I use Mugshot, for the highlighter I use Strange. For eyeliner, I use a jet black eyeshadow on the lash line. I use the 'Better than Sex' mascara by Too Faced. This eye look works best for me and I'm sure it will work for anyone.

I'm a natural blonde too, and for the color of mascara -- I can say that for years I've worn dark brown or brown-black thinking that black would look too harsh with my fair skin and blonde hair (blonde lashes naturally too). But I recently started wearing black mascara and think it looks great. Doesn't appear too harsh at all.
I also have green eyes... I love a really black Mascara. If you want a colored mascara go with Blue or Purple although its hard to see the color. I love Tarte Mascara and Dior Show Blackout.
I am fair skinned with light hair and blue/green eyes. I use the Tarte mascara in black as my lashes are almost blonde. The Lights, Camera Lashes mascara is not clumpy at all so you can apply several layers if you like to darken up light lashes. For eyeliner, I use the Buxom eyeliner pencil in Emerald, then smudge it just a little for a softer line. In summer I use a mint green or aqua eye shadow on the lid. Have fun!!
I recently purchased the Tarte TEN Limited Edition Collector's Palette. These colors were really stepping outside my comfort zone because they seemed dark and dramatic. However, with a couple of lessons at the Beauty Bar I learned how to apply for day and night in a few combinations. This palette came with the awesome mascara, and a two sided eye liner. I love the feel of the shadows and they stay on all day.

Black mascara and a light orange eye shadow. Korres has a wonderful light orange that goes well with Tarte.

tarte, lights camera action mascara would be great. it coats easily so there won't be any blonde/light brown eye lash roots. go with black mascara...unless you want to go for a "i'm no wearing makeup look." redheads are the only ones that i would use brown mascara on.
i have dirty blonde hair, blue/green eyes, and fair skin. to make my eyes pop, use purple shadow or eyeliner. stay away from blues! browns, bronze, and copper will also make your eyes pop (orange and blue are opposite on the color wheel...). if you'd like more indepth advice, i would purchase the book by carmindy (she is the makeup artist on "what not to wear") called "the 5 minute face." it gives specific tips on the appropriate colors for you based on hair color and skin tone. good luck

try this Tarte, it is black, but definitely very natural looking. I love it. I have never seen anything make my lashes look this good.

As far as colors go for light haired/skinned people like us, I have found that the pastel colors are the most flattering and the easiest to blend and match. Pinks (of varying degrees) are a staple in my beauty box as well as lavender, purple blue (both dark and light) as well as yellow. I use the colors depending on what I wear and how light my hair/skin is that day.
As far as eye liner again stay away from reds, dark greens in fact stay away from any dark color except for black of course. I find that I can use my eye shadow for an under eye highlighter and black eyeliner for my upper lash line. I love the Sephora brand that is a liquid and has an applicator brush. The eye liner is called long-lasting eye liner and the Sephora number is: 92930. Use caution though, it easily runs and can be applied in too big a swash. First wipe the brush off on the inside of the bottle before you apply it to your eye. When you do apply it, use very gentle pressure, at least till you get a feel for what you are doing then you can use any method you see fit for you.
I truly hope this has helped and good luck. I just wish I had a big sister or girlfriend who could have given me this advice when I started wearing makeup. Have fun sis.

well i have brown eyes but i also use green contacts sometimes...
plum generally looks better on brown eyes (another reviewer says green but watever)
if your eyes are mostly green use a gold liner/shadow or double line with a black then gold. generally green eyes have some gold flecks and this will help them stand out. but since your blonde i think this will also help the more light or golden strands of hair stand out also
if your eyes are more blue try a more copper-ish tint. it looks amazing and really i think if you whant the darker blond strands to stand out use this.
ummm for mascara use black... personally i use the blinc kiss me mascara and even if you have blonde lashes this will look great.
also for some bold shadows try make up forever, urban decay, and too faced has a very nice plate called naked eye that i LOVE.
hope i helped :)
I have blue/green eyes too and dirty blonde hair as well. I find that gold, pink, or brown eyeshadows will make blue eyes POP. For gold, Urban Decay has an endless variety of GREAT quality golds and browns, I like baked, or twice baked, it may seem intense but it looks great on eyes. For pinks, try the Loreal H.I.P pink and black eye shadow duo, it's great. Also tans, or shimmery shadows would make your eyes pop. For mascara i suggest Dior Brand "black out" ,or "Iconic" or Tarte's "Lights camera, Lashes".
I'd try a nice plum color if I were you. It would definitely bring out the green in your eyes.
