Have you ever wondered why the whole world wears jeans that are blue? Yes sometimes we change it up, but why is blue the standard? I’ve pondered that question many times and have to quess it’s because everything from a pink sweater to a black halter top looks good with blue. It’s just one of those things… and the same theory goes for eye shadow. Blue eye shadow looks good on EVERYONE! Sounds crazy but if you dare to try it, you’ll see it looks gorgeous with brown, blue and green eyes, warm and cool undertones, blondes and brunettes, African American skin to pale ivory skin. Again, it’s just one of those things!
For the faint of heart, try a liner like I did on Lauren above on my very second job with her back in 2007. You can line both your top and bottom lash lines with an electric or navy-blue kohl or liquid liner, or just line the bottom like we did.
For the more adventurous, try a single wash of blue color across your lid. Then skip liner but really coat your lashes black.
And for the ultra risk-taker, use a light blue shadow on the inner corner, a medium blue shadow on the lid and a bright blue shadow along the outer crease, corner and across the bottom. Line the inner waterline with a black liner and really coat your lashes black.
For all three looks, pair your eyes with one of these monochromatic choices:
- Nude blush + nude lip
- Peach blush + peach lip
- Rosy-pink blush + rosy-pink lip
Then pair it with your favorite blue jeans of course! And as always, we’d love to see pictures so please tweet them to us @TBDofficial and we’ll retweet!
