One of the makeup trends for this summer is blue eye makeup. Looking at the models from this season’s catwalk, any sort of blue eye makeup will work- messy navy liner, baby blue lids, bright cobalt, black&blue smoky, blue liquid liner cat flicks, anything goes.
I’m having a go today at blue eye makeup. I don’t think blue suits me, maybe it’s my skin tone? I seldom wear it. But I t’s a fresh look for the new season though. Summer’s just round the corner, let’s freshen things up a bit.
So today I went for black liquid liner to begin with. Mascara is obligatory.
Then I blended with a blue shadow. The shadow is Urban Decay, I forget what it’s called. It’s medium toned and has a little metallic shimmer.
Do you know, I think I preferred the look before I started blending. I like that bold swipe of intense blue. I think I over egged it with the blending and diluted the impact.
I think dark or bright blue can look great. I think to avoid looking a bit 80s avoid pale shimmery blue. Try Navy, Cobalt, bright matte Aqua. Keep it Matte and Bold, I think you could be on to a winner. A tan would help too, no doubt.
