Marlena’s Tips for Wearing Blue Eyeshadow:

  1. Pair the blue with a neutral color such as brown, tan, or even gray- the neutral will offset the brightness of the blue
  2. Use blue in moderation- keep it to just the lid, under the lower lashline, or as an accent in the outer V
  3. Choose your blues wisely.  If you feel the color is too bright, go for a deeper blue to replace your everyday brown or black.
  4. If you use a brighter blue, use a matte finish as the frosty or glittery finish makes the blue almost too much to handle
  5. Blues look good on everyone, but are especially good for brown eyed girls as it makes the brown eyes pop!
