When it comes to changing up your makeup, it can be difficult to experiment with looks that fall outside your comfort zone. And for many people, blue eyeshadow is a far cry from their go-to eye makeup looks. While all eyeshadow techniques can be used regardless of the color you’re working with, there are some tips and tricks to be aware of when working with a bold hue.
So below, we’re breaking down how to get three different looks using blue eyeshadow: a toned-down look if you find blue intimidating, a moderate look if you’re fairly comfortable with color, and a bold look if you’re not afraid to play with some vivid hues.
1. Inner Corner Pop
If the idea of creating a bold look with bright colors is intimidating to you, opting for a neutral look with a pop of color in the inner corners is a great place to begin. Also keep in mind that not all shades of blue are super bold. You can opt for a baby blue or another muted blue in order to keep the look fairly understated.
Get the Look
Step 1. After priming your eyelids with eyeshadow primer or concealer, apply a skin tone eyeshadow shade to your lids. Then blend a slightly darker, neutral color into the crease of your eyelids with a fluffy brush to create natural definition.
Step 2. Next, using a pencil brush, apply a matte or shimmery blue eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyes. For this look, it’s best to use a light or bright blue shade, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Argentic, to illuminate the eyes rather than make them appear closed off by choosing a dark blue.
Step 3. Finish off the look by applying a volumizing mascara like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara.
2. Faded Metallic
Metallic eyeshadow looks are trending, and they look gorgeous when done in shades of blue. If you’re not afraid of rocking a pop of color, but you prefer simple makeup techniques, this is the look for you.
