How To Wear Blue Eyeshadow!

Hi My Loves!!!

I have a lot of people ask me how to pull off blue eyeshadow. For a lot of people it's a color that makes them nervous that they will end up looking like Mimi from Drew Carey. Here's how I like to wear it so that I don't look like her :)

The key is to keep it looking light and glowy or super dark and smokey. A matte blue can be super tough if it's just all one color so if you are into matte shades just be sure to put some deep navy or darker blue in there... even a silver in the corner to brighten would work too. Also keep the majority of the blue on your lid, try not to go too high with it. Wearing a tan or soft brown in the crease with a pop of blue on the lid works too :)

This is my favorite way to wear blue at the moment. Glowy, shimmery and super easy and quick! By putting a royal blue liner all over my lower lid and smudging out with my finger and then topping it off with a shimmery pigment, it gives it that peek of blue underneath but keeps it so that it catches the light. This way your first though is how sparkly the eyes look, rather than whoa blue eyeshadow ;)
