Blue eyes are perhaps the most widely admired. Only eight percent of the world’s population has blue eyes, making blue-eyed guys and gals extra special. While they can be found all over the world, they are frequently found from nationalities located near the Baltic Sea in northern Europe. And according to researchers at the University of Copenhagen, it appears that a genetic mutation in a single individual in Europe 6,000 to 10,000 years ago led to the development of blue eyes.
There’s no denying that blue eyes are oh-so-special–and knowing how to play them up with makeup can really make them pop. Read our suggestions for the best makeup looks for blue eyes!

3. Sparkle with silver: Using a sparkly silver eyeshadow or eyeliner is almost guaranteed to make your blue eyes stand out. It’s also one of the easiest–and most fun–makeup looks to master.
