The Blue Eyeshadow

I'm often wonder how I became scared of the blue eyeshadow. The taught of wearing it when I got into eye makeup just irks me. Honestly, I think its just too gaudy, that would probably make me look cheap. I was also scared that it wouldn't match my skin tone, thinking that only cool skin toned ladies can pull this off. I'm sure many here shares the same thoughts as I do.

With much admiration and adoration to the looks of Jheng and other pinay beauty gurus in Youtube, I finally found myself slowly trying blue eyeshadow. With the right tool, a liitle bit of a skill, and a certain amunt of self-condfidence it seems easy to pull it off after all.

1. I started using it as eyeliner. it could be a liquid eyeliner, (prestige, in2it, 4u2) mineral powder foiled with H2O or visine applied with an eyeliner brush.
2. Using it on the inner lid. I usually choose the light blue on this one to brighten my eyes (ellana lucky).
3. Being adventurous, I partner it with all too many colors and created a rainbow look.
4. To parties, I used it to create smokey blue looks.

I even used it as my final look for my graduation from Basement Academy, just to prove to that filipinas can pull of a blue eyeshadow.
