Blue Eye Shadow can be tricky to wear because the color is so prominent and bright. With the right knowledge, however, you can pull the look off and bring positive attention to your eyes. The right Blue Eye Shadow will complement your skin tone or hair color, and, by applying the color correctly and blending well following a few simple tips, the look can be pleasing.
Different Blue Eye Shadow complements different skin tones and hair colors. For fair-skinned blonds, wear a transparent Blue Eye Shadow paired with neutral brown mascara. A blue-purple shadow is recommended for fair-skinned brunettes, an icy blue for redheads, a navy or icy silver-blue for those with olive complexions and an eggshell-blue paired with blue mascara for brown skin tones.
Blue Eye Shadow should be toned down for daytime use and played up in the evenings or for parties. Eye Shadows that are semitransparent are good for daytime use because the blue color brings attention to the eyes but does not overpower them. Full color blues paired with blue liners give a bolder look for parties and nights out. For a nice evening look, create a smoky eye with Blue Eye Shadow, and pair it with black mascara and black or blue eyeliner.
