Light blue eye shadow was the most popular eye shadow color in the “70’s and 80’s”. Back then, it was applied like a little kid painting with numbers. So much so, that it scared so many women today away from the color. But now there are so many different shades of blue, that this spring you can find many shades you will love to wear.
A transparent green-blue eye shadow would work for blondes, while fair-skin brunettes should use a shimmery blue-purple. A navy or icy silver-blue eye shadow will look amazing with a brown/olive skin tone. I love to use brighter blue eye shadow on darker skin, I find the pigments of the colors show up so much better.
When you accent vibrant colors with a kohl liner or a liquid black liner it makes the eye shadow color pop and the liner define the eyes giving them shape.
My favorite four blue eye shadows to use are:
L’Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Midnight Blue
Nars Eye Shadow Night Flight
Ulta Eye Shadow Blue Velvet
Sephora Chrome Mono Eye Shadow Teal Turquoise
