Blue Eye Shadow

Let's do blue in this time of neutral eye shadow! 
I have always loved blue eye shadow even though people say you can't wear blue eye shadow when you have blue eyes. Call me a rebel, I'm wearing blue shadow with blue eyes!

The key to wearing blue eye shadow is to make it modern by using multiple shades of blue. This is Wet n Wild's Color Icon Eye Shadow Palette in I'm His Breezey. There are five fabulous shades to play with and it's only $3.99 at CVS. ( I saw it for less on Amazon!) I don't like to spend a lot on shadow colors that I don't wear often so this is perfect. The colors are marked so you know where to use them, but let your creative juices flow and use them any way you please.

I started with the base color all over the lid and then created a gradient look from light to dark.

The browbone color went on the inner eyelid followed by the eyelid color in the center of the eyelid. 

Next, I used the crease color on the outer eyelid and crease. It is important to do a lot of blending with a makeup brush to create the soft gradient. 

The definer color made a great liner and also added depth to the outer edges of the eyelid and crease.

I added some extra sparkle to the inner corner with Urban Decay Polyester Bride right on top of the blue.

Polyester Bride is in the Urban Decay Ammo Palette that I have. I spotted it on Amazon. Click here!

You can also buy Polyester Bride as an Urban Decay single shadow at Ulta, Sephora and urbandecay.com.
