I've always had a soft spot for the hue of blue.  It's the color that I learned to apply eye shadow with, when I was fourteen and had stolen mom's makeup palette.  

All grown up, though I gravitate more to other colors, I'm once in a while still drawn to blue eye shadow, especially when I want to have fun with makeup.  I guess today was one of those days.

For highlighter, I used the lightest color in Revlon's quad colors in Blue Smoke.


On the crease, I applied blue ocean by L'oreal.



For the lids, I used Revlon's Riviera Blue.  To make eyes bigger, I applied outward in.


And then I used my favorite blue liner, Shu DeVit in Victoria Falls, to rim upper and lower lines.


Curl lashes and apply a generous coat of mascara, and my blue shadow is done.

I must admit, I do a much better job now than when I was 14.  It's fun to wear colorful shadow, especially if it makes me feel like a carefree teenager again.


  1. Oh dear. I remember those highschool days of blue eye shadow!!!! Wow, it must be a teenager thing. I look back at pictures and think.. w t f was I doing!!! Shimmery bright blue eye shadow.. with no liner or anything. Made the eyes look swollen!

  10. To specifically make your blue eyes traffic stoppingly bold, I suggest colors such as: browns, grays, golds, rusty peaches or plum colors.
