"Eye" question

Maybe this's been asked countless times, but I searched in the archive, and couldn't find something on eyes. There's this effect, on the icon by iconoclastics Image hosted by Photobucket.com, which I don't know how to recreate. I'm okay with the black and whiteness, but how to make the eyes look so dashing blue? Is it just painting over the eyes area or something? Every time I try someting, it turns out very wrong. I'm using Photoshop CS. Could someone please point me in the right direction?

Header Tutorial-Adding color to a black/white image and using blend modes and texture.

This tutorial is for Photoshop and will cover colorizing a black and white image and then making it into a header. It's super easy but the colorizing section takes a little time and patience. I only use Photoshop and so I don't know for sure but this can probably be applied to other programs because it's pretty basic. Colorizations can seem intimidating but they aren't really. It's all about using your layers and playing around with blending modes! For this tutorial, we are going to start with this picture of the amazing Kate Winslet. This is what we'll end up with;
