Tips to Carry Off Blue Eye Shadow

Dark makeup and also those in brighter colors are all the rage this season and with the festive season around the corner, blue is an unusual color that many consider too risky to wear as they feel that this color is too loud. Here are some tips that can help you to pull off this bold color.


Right Features Accentuated:

Blue eye shadow was seen across all the runways this fall and when you apply it properly, it makes the whites of your eyes pop and make up looking fresh. Cassie Lomas, makeup artist at the Clements Ribeiro show mixed a peacock up eye liner pencil with some concealer before she applied it on the models. She says that the best way to wear blue eye shadow is to wear it lightly, the lighter the coverage of the color is, and the better it will look. It should be applied with your smallest finger using a smudging and blending motion.


The Right Shade of Blue:

Royal blue suits blue eyes best- if you have brown eyes use a shade of blue pastel, while people with green eyes are lucky as they can wear both. Women with dusky skin should consider wearing the lighter shades of blue while women with fairer skin can try darker shades with glitter or sparkles.


Complementing your blue look:

If peacock blue is too bright for you or if you feel it is not the right shade for you, you can try a muted navy that can be worn with black mascara-and lots of it. Blue can also be worn in the smoky way and looks best of the color of your dress is beige. First smudge with either a black or grey pencil followed by the application of royal blue eye shadow towards outer eye edge and light blue shadow on the center and continue smudging. Finally define your eyes with kajal and black mascara.


When to Wear Blue:

When wearing blue eye shadow amok sure that dress does not match the color of your eye shadow. The clothes worn should contrast such a bright shade, think or white; beige with neutral patterns will complement this color. The rest of your make up should be more subtle with matte lip tints in light brown, peach as too much of color on your face will destroy the beauty of the blue eye shadow.
