Beauty trends come and go but blue eyeshadow always seems to find its way back to top beauty charts. To keep it more modern opt for graphic cobalt blue or washed off turquoise aqua shades. Anything in between does scream 70’s disco which is a very hard look to pull off anyways. Recently I did a blog post featuring new and updated way to apply turquoise eyeshadow and this is part two of the series, dedicated to cobalt blue eyeshadow. Both are bold sets of colors that might not be something you gravitated towards on a regular bases but if you are already looking here are some great source of blue eyeshadow ideas and application techniques that are easier done than explained.
Cobalt blue is a particularly vibrant and dark color best worn on a night out or it is also a great choice for eyeliner. For this look I used a cream cobalt blue eyeshadow layered with black shimmer on top. As a base I started with cocoa brown color in my crease and all over the lid. This first step helped me achieve more eye debt and dimension. Next I placed the cream cobalt eyeshadow close to the lash line and then blending it upwards until only the shape of my eyelid was covered. Once I was happy with position of color and everything was well blended I moved on to layering that black glitter on top of the blue.
I really love the final look and find it especially flattering on my brown eyes. It took me a bit of time to perfect it so I definitely recommended taking your sweet time and not attempting this on the bus or in the train. We all know how that look will end up looking… #beentheredonethat.
