To Blue or Not To Blue…

Blue is like the new black. At least, as far as eye shadow is concerned. (check the runways… they never lie!)
So, I decided to try it myself… I wore blue to (gasp) a Rod Stewart concert!!! I’m not sure if it was the 80’s love or my fierce eyes, but blue was bold.

Here’s what I did:

To start, I used a base color… something neutral. I like Nars’ All About Eve. I put this on the width of my eye.

Next, I used Tinte Cosmetics Shimmering Face Pearls in Midnight Blue. I used a thin brush, wet it, and applied it first like eyeliner above and below my eye. Then, I used a contour brush and applied the loose powder to my lids, just below the brow bone.

Finally, I used Stila’s Kajal Eye Liner in Sapphire to line the inside of my eyes. This eyeliner could almost be mistaken for black if it weren’t for the lightest navy hue. I loved this liner!!! It wasn’t as aggressive as black but it was still a statement.
