Blue Eyeshadow is Back

Blue eyeshadow conjures up images of eighties prom night, but it doesn’t have to be that scary. Blue eyeshadow makes blue and green eyes pop and enhances their natural colour. From the lightest sky blue wash to the deepest navy, blue eyeshadows are all over the beauty counters this month.

Here’s how to wear it without looking like you’re an 80s throwback.


Get the lightest blue and sweep a hint of colour over your eyelid. Rim your eyes with a light brown eye pencil and a touch of mascara for a natural look with a twist.

Bronwyn’s Tip: Blending is the key to a soft and natural look. Invest in a good blending brush; it’ll be your new favourite tool.


For a bit of night-time drama try a smoky eye in blue. Replace your usual browns and greys with a palette of deep sea blues and babyish hues.

Wash a light blue eyeshadow over your entire eyelid, right up to the brow bone. Take a dark blue eyeshadow and run it into your eye crease, and into the outer corners of your eye, and along the bottom lash line. Blend to soften.

For a bit of extra shimmer, add a very light blue eyeshadow with a hint of sparkle (try M.A.C’s Chen Man or Maybelline’s Colour Plush) into the inner corners of the eyes.

Bronwyn’s Tip: For an over-the-top effect, use dark blue eyeliner instead of black.


Take the brightest blue you have (try Napoleon’s Loose Eye Dust in Electric Blue) and sweep it over your entire eyelid. Blend to soften any harsh edges. Now draw black eyeliner into your lash line top and bottom, and blend to smudge the line. Take a thin eyeshadw brush a run a tiny bit of blue along your bottom lash line. Finish off with lashings of mascara in either black or blue.

Bronwyn’s Tip: For a really intense blue, build up your eyeshadow by dabbing it on with a damp brush.
