How to Wear Blue Eyeshadow...Chanel #92 Bleu Celestes

I had this Chanel  Eye Shadow #92 Bleu Celestes  for awhile and I love it.  There is an opinion that blue eye makeup sometimes is hard to pull off.  This is why when I came across the article written by makeup artists Robin Black, who has worked with Chloe Sevigny, Eva Mendes and Olivia Wilde,  about how to wear  blue color on your eyes without looking 1980s girl, I thought it will be useful to share her suggestions with you.  Via LifeStyle Mirror!

Here are Robin's suggestions on how to wear blue eyes:

1. Ditch your usual black liner (liquid, gel or pencil) and recreate your favorite shape in blue. For a cat eye, I love a bright neon blue: It’s unexpected and looks gorgeous on both dark and light eye colors.

2. For a night on the town, switch your typical smoky eye (comprised of shades of black, gray or bronze) for an elegant navy version. A navy smoky eye looks great with nude lips or for the bold, with a bright pop of color (orange red or pale pink look modern).

3. If you prefer a more natural look, why not try blue mascara? Start with dewy skin, flushed cheeks, a nude lip and then a thick coat of bright blue mascara on both the top and bottom lashes. Curl and flutter for the full effect.

As a final note, Robin Black urges you to remember, “Keep the color on your eyelid. Blue up to your eyebrow will read as 1980s Valley Girl.”
