Beauty Bomb: Try a Smoky Blue Eye

More wearable than you thinkhey, get those Drew Carey/Mimi images out of your head blue eyeshadow looks beautimous (I totally stole beautimous from a guy working at Sephora who used the word when he saw I was getting Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #8 Redlol) on all our shades of brown from French Vanilla to Chocolate Deluxe. Pair it with a nude lip or go all out and rock it with a bright lip. Add a shade of turquoise or violet to give your blue some depth.

Some universally cool blues to try (because they look great on all skin tones):
Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in Navy Blue 60
Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in Metallic Navy Blue Iridescent 81
Turquoise Shimmer 83
LOreal HIP Eyeshadow in Showy
LOreal HIP Eyeshadow in Roaring (the blue side)
NYX Eyeshadow in Blue Marine
MAC Eyeshadow in Deep Truth
MAC Eyeshadow in Nehru
MAC Eyeshadow in Contrast

If eyeshadow fall out plagues some of your best smoky looks, try doing your eyes before you do your foundation. This way if the shadow gets under your eyes, you wont need to reapply your base.

Smoky blue look too much for your taste? Try a blue eyeliner pencil winged out on your top lash line or just on your bottom lash line thena cool way to sneak color in and bring out your eyes.

Will you be rocking the smoky blue look? If you already do, how do you rock your blues?
