BLUE EYESHADOW – YEA OR NAY?

Olivia Palmero is one of the most fashionable trend-setters around.  So when I see her sporting blue eyeshadow, I know it’s a look I need to try.  I’m pretty sure baby blue was the first eye color I ever bought.  I was in the 8th grade, and it was powdery and harsh.  I piled it on thick.  I thought I looked amazing!

Who knew, however, that blue eyeshadow would make a comeback and be runway ready?!  I’m probably not brave enough to try Olivia’s pop of blue, it’s definitely do-able with a few tips:

  • Softer is better – bold colors of any kind are difficult to pull off.  Keep the look soft to brighten but not overpower your eyes.
  • Rim the eye – Take a tip from Heidi Klum and add color on both the eyelid and below the eye.
  • Play up lashes – Contrast the soft color with big, bold lashes and defined brows to keep from looking too playful.
