Eye Tutorial: Blue Eye Shadow

Some women are really scared of blue eye shadow. And as neutral lover myself, I can admit that delving farther into the color spectrum can be a little nerve-wracking. But, I was feeling a little adventurous yesterday and so, I found myself reaching for my blue Studio Secrets eye shadow palette from L’Oreal (their palettes are awesome, by the way).

1. Apply a pale blue base shadow to the entire lid.

2. Apply a medium blue shade to the outer third of the lid.

3. Apply a darker blue shade to the crease and then blend out. We don’t want any harsh lines, especially with a non-neutral shade.

4. Apply eyeliner to the upper and lower water line. I used a dark brown liner because I feel like black can be a little too harsh on me.

5. Apply mascara (again, I went with dark brown) and highlighter to the inner corners and below the outer part of the brow bone.

It has been a long time since I have deviated neutral shades, and I was impressed with the result. Turns out, blue isn’t so scary after all!

Do you stick with neutral eye shadow or are you more adventurous with the color spectrum?

  1. This is such a nice eye look for your eyes, it makes them stand out! I get so nervous when I stray away from my browns/neutral shades but I like to mix it up a little bit too. I might try and wear some color this week and see what happens.

    1. Thanks. I was nervous when I wasn’t going for my pinks or golds! There has to be at least one non-neutral that suits you – you’ve just got to experiment. :)
