Look: Bang-On Blue!

Many people find it difficult to wear blue eyeshadow without looking like Mimi from the Drew Carry show. I think if it’s worn well, anyone can pull it off. Depending on your skin tone, you can bring it out smokey like this look or just add a small bit to the lid just for a tint. Blue comes in so many shades which makes it an amazing color family to work with. In this look I tried (really hard) to bring out the royal blue shade to match my shirt, but I don’t feel I was that successful – it’s too silvery. Using Contrast in the crease darkened it up a little, but it’s still one of my favorite looks. Enjoy!
