FOTD: Modern Blue Eyeshadow

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear these words: Blue Eyeshadow.

If you’re anything like me, you’re probably thinking about the ‘80s or ‘90s. Or maybe a diner waitress rocking some pineapple earrings.

Blue eyeshadow and eyeliner tends to have a bad rap. It’s a retro color scheme that isn’t very popular these days. Well, I wanted to try a blue eyeshadow look that didn’t make you (or me) cringe.

So, I came up with this Modern Blue Eyeshadow look for today’s Face of the Day!

Face of the Day: Modern Blue EyeshadowSome subtle blue over there.

For my face, I used Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless! foundation, as usual. I also used L’Oreal Bare Naturale All-Over Mineral Glow for some warm blush.

FOTD: Modern Blue EyeshadowFor the lips, I have to admit it: I used the Saturday color from the Kardashian Beauty A Week of Kisses Mini Lip Gloss Set.

Don’t judge me! It’s a nice color, okay?

Face of the Day: Modern Blue EyeshadowBut, really, this look is all about the eyes. I decided on a double dose of blue with both blue eyeshadow and blue eyeliner.

Here’s what I used:

What do you think of the blue? Would you wear this kind of look?

Personally, I really liked how this turned out, and would totally do it again.

I’m growing out my hair. Any suggestions?

Did you notice? As you can maybe tell in the full-face picture above, I’m growing out my black hair. My natural color (a dark blond/light brown) is already pretty long with about 4-inch roots.

Any advice or ideas on what to do next? I’m thinking maybe a reverse ombre once it gets a bit longer, since I don’t exactly want to cut my hair short to get rid of the black.

I’ve even started a hair inspiration Pinterest board.

Suggestions are much appreciated! Let’s chat about it in the comments.

  1. So pretty! Love the lip colour too. 🙂

  2. Lovely eye look! Also love your pintrest pics .. I’d love to do real color .. like pink or purple .. just an ombre.

    I cut my hair a bit shorter too .. a reverse A line, but ugh the back is too curly as my natural wave kinks up. Oh, well .. it’ll grow.
