The Blue Eye Edit


Pictured above are some of my staple products I use when wearing a 'blue eye' look. I adore blue eyeshadow, and I really don't understand how people can't. 'It clashes with my eyes'. My eyes are blue, they change shades constantly and there are days where my eyes are almost green. Therefore my eyes stereotypically are the colour that should avoid the deeper shade (points if you got the steps reference!!), yet I don't think I will ever fall out of love with it.

Within make-up it is so easy to create different combinations and make-up looks. The first combination I tend to wear the most is probably my favourite of the bunch. I'll take my Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Turquoise Forever or my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cobalt and place it all over the lid as my base. Usually I will then take MAC's eyeshadow in Steamy (probably my all time fave) and place it all over the lid. After this I'll add my trademark Soap & Glory Supercat liner and do some sort of flick. Standard. Really simple and it literally takes 5 minutes. Combined with a little bronze and a neutral/natural nude this look is unbelievably easy to wear.

The 'block liner look' is another really easy look and perfect in day-to-night and no time to drastically change makeup situations. I'll take the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Creme de Nude along with Urban Decay's Midnight Cowboy and place the two all over my lids. Next up I'll pick my liner of choice, which will often be my Blue Vivid Liner from NYX if I'm after a pop of colour or the Navy Soap & Glory Kohl Liner if I want a more subtle look. Alongside lashings of mascara and an optional black line in the waterline, this look is really great day-to-day and ideal for beginners.

Last up is adding glitter or a 'pop' of colour into a normal eye look. Urban Decay's Heavy Metal liners are in my opinion the best to go to for beginners, regardless of what colour you want to use. For those who are either a bit more experienced or like to experiment more, loose glitters are also fun to use, and both MAC and NYX have the best ranges of colours on the market, (well I think so anyway!). If glitter isn't your thing, why not try adding a colour into your smokey eye rather than your 'normal' greys/browns. For a really sophisticated look, MAC's shadow in Naval is a brilliant matte navy shade that works really well with champagne toned eyeshadows.

And there are just a few of my blue eye combinations!

Do you wear blue eyeshadow?
