Nothing excites me more than blue eyeshadow, but I didn’t always feel this way. I actually used to fear blue shadow. I would always envision looking like Bobo the Clown or, even worse, Mimi from The Drew Carey show. But, darlings, it’s not blue eyeshadow that’s the victim in those beauty crimes. It’s the application. The key is to research and find ways to make blue eyeshadow complement your eyes. Here’s how you can make blue eyeshadow work for you.
Spin the color wheel: There are many shades of blue. From baby blue to turquoise blue to navy blue and beyond, I know it’s mind-boggling, but attempt to find a shade that you think will look best. If MAC’s Electric Eel ($14.50) seems a little too scary, start off with a lighter blue. Go into Sephora or on Ulta.com and play around with different shades of blue until you find one that looks attractive. Better yet, buy BH Cosmetics’ 120 Color Palette 2nd Edition ($22.46). It comes with a number of gorgeous blues that you can play around with.
