The trend that started in the Victorian period was considered a sign of beauty and innocence. Modernized versions of eyeshadow are bold, bright, and definitely not for the faint at heart. You can wear electrifying shades teamed with neutrals for a dazzling night out with your friends, or stick to bare minimal with pastel and icy blue shades of shadow for the day. All you got to remember is to stay cool while wearing blue eyeshadow.
Your skin tone and the color of your eyes should be taken into consideration when using blue eyeshadow. Makeup is meant to stand out on your skin, which is why, choosing paler tones works for those with light skin, while darker and brighter hues are best left for those with darker skin tones.
Let your eye color help you pick the right shade of eyeshadow. As a rule, never match the eyeshadow to your eye color.
It's better to be safe than sorry when using bright and bold colors like blue. In order to make the color look its dazzling best, ensure that you apply a layer of eye primer on your eyelids. Following this step diligently will ensure the color looks great all day.
Playing with two colors gives dimension, which is why, you ought to have at least two shades of blue in your vanity case. Use the lighter shade to go all over your lid, while keeping the darker shade to line the outer corner of your lid. Also keep a navy-blue or richer blue eyeliner and mascara ready to complement your look.
The main idea behind using a bright color for the eyes is to draw attention to them. Unless you want to create a high-drama situation, you should go easy with your face makeup. Stick to bare minimal when using electrifying colors like blues and greens. The rule is to balance out your makeup when wearing solid colors on the eyes.
The most important rule to be remembered is to blend the colors really well, to perfect the look. Anything that is not blended well, will result in an overdone face, and I bet, nobody ever wants to look overdone.
Give volume to your lashes as well as intensify the vibrant color with a good coat of mascara. You can alternately use falsies to dramatically lengthen your lashes, and add to the vibrancy of the moment.
