3 Ways to wear Blue!

 

Every shade of blue has rocked the runways for a while. Sure Marsala—a curious blend of plum meets wine—may be the new Pantone color of the year but blue is clearly the hottest and most wearable hue this winter. Of course you could don a pair of blue jeans or pull out your favorite denim jacket but there’s nothing like blue liner, shadow or nail polish to up the glamor stakes. Most gals are a bit wary of wearing cobalt blue liner and shadow at first, but I’ll show you how to wear the hue with confidence. It’s such a great way to light up your face. The best part – it works on all eye colors and skin tones – you just have to pick the right hue!

 

Eye Liner

The easiest way to sport blue is a quick flick of blue liner. Opting for blue liner instead of boring ol’ black can add an interesting element to your look. Jewel toned sapphire blue and deep rich navy blue shades are very flattering to the Indian complexion. And if you feel daring, opt for a vibrant electric blue!

Makeup Look : Teal Blue Eyes with Coral Lips

 

Hey everyone!

For Day 25 of the September Daily Challenge, I used a bright jewel toned Teal eye shadow on the eyes paired with coral cheeks and lips. The blue eye shadow I used for the eyes is an eye shadow crayon by Rimmel which gives this really intense teal color which lasts quite long! Coral always works great with warm blues and greens and I chose Nude Coral lipstick from Colorbar paired with a blush from Revlon. Read on for the full breakdown of this look.

Makeup Look : Navy Blue Eyes, Nude Pink Lips

 

Hey everyone!

I hadn’t done anything with blue in the September Daily Look Challenge so far. So for Day 17 today, I did simple look with an intense navy blue eye shadow as the focus of the look. I used a single blue shade from the Sleek Makeup Bad Girl Palette and smoked it out with a matte brown shadow. To complement the eyes, I used a peachy pink blush and a matte nude pink lipstick, both from NYX.

EOTD : Peacock Eyes | Colorful Makeup

 

Hey everyone!

Happy Saturday! Its been a while since I did a colorful eye makeup look and I decided to try out some Inglot matte shadows that I hadn’t touched in a while. I created a blue-green colorful look using all matte shadows, used a sapphire liner to complement the eye shadows and added a gold highlight in the inner corner. To complement the eyes, I used a soft pinky coral lip color.
