Blue Makeup Ideas

I’ve been crazy about blue makeup lately, and first want to invite you all to click HERE to join my Blue Makeup board on Pinterest!  I’m curating the best blue makeup images around for your viewing pleasure. Blue on the eyes and nails, featured in the image above, are two of my favorite ways to rock the color blue.  I’m eternally a fan of a blue eye pencil in the shade shown above! Here are some other killer blue makeup ideas.

Blue French Tips

Blue French Tips:  This is a wonderful, modern take on a classic French manicure.  Simply use a sheer shade of polish as a base, and use blue instead of white on the tips.  I’m especially fond of using a glittery polish, like the mani shown above.  This manicure also features some strategically placed rhinestones on the ring finger nail, as an accent.

Blue Winged Eye Makeup, With Matching Manicure

Blue Winged Eye:  A subtle way to incorporate blue makeup into your routine is simply to use it as an accent color on the eye.  The woman above uses a bright blue to apply winged eye makeup, making this look modern in design and color.  The matching blue manicure is a nice touch.

Vivid Blues Balanced With Purple

Vivid Blue Eye Makeup Balanced With Purple:  The woman in the photo above really went for it!  If you’re going to go bold with blue, the best way is to balance the look by using other colors as well.  A dark purple is equally vivid, but grounds this look.

Blue Accent On Neutral Eye

Use Blue Makeup As A Neutral:  Remember those old family photos of your Mom, where she was wearing blue eye shadow in every photo?  Well that’s because the shade blue was considered neutral, and once again this is true.  Incorporate a touch of blue in your eye makeup routine, and it adds a touch of fun to your normal neutral eye.

Bobbi Brown Eye Makeup Ideas!

A good friend of mine invited me to join her at the Nordstrom Spring Beauty Trend Show a few weeks ago and I couldn’t resist!

The event itself was like a slumber party on crack. The store was packed with women getting facials and makeovers in tall chairs scattered through the beauty department. While we had booked some appointments, we ended up having our eye makeup done at Bobbi Brown on a whim. I told Deynece Petri, the artist, to simply do as she pleased. She took my natural, neutral eye to a smoky sooty black dramatic eye with only a few simple steps, and a few products! [Read more…]
