Blues are probably the most challenging when it comes to eye makeup just because they’re a tad dramatic for everyday wear. But I convinced myself to come up with something subtle or daytime-appropriate by carefully selecting well-coordinated hues as well as employ delicate blending strokes.

I used five shades from Viseart Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette Bridal Satin (full review here): baby blue, navy blue, purplish blue on my lids and brownish bronze on crease. I lightly smudged navy blue and black eyeshadows along my lower lash line and lined my waterline with Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil Minuit (matte navy blue, full swatches of the collection here). I finished two coats of Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, it does make lashes look voluminous sans tarantula effect.
For my blush, bronzer and highlighter, Tom Ford Soleil Contouring Compact (review here) remains to be my go-to. All three shades compliment my medium skin tone without looking overdone-ala-drag. To balance blue, I opted for nude lip color by Burberry Full Kisses (more swatches here).
There are two new products featured in this post, both of which weren’t reviewed yet. Giorgio Armani Luminessence CC Cream (stay tuned for a comparison post with a staple, ByTerry Cellularose Moisturizing CC Cream) and Burberry Cashmere Concealer (offhand, not a fan because while it covers nicely, the formula tends to accentuate dry under eye area).
Here are snapshots of all products used for this look:

Finally, here’s my finished look, I’m singing blues!

Thank you twinsy
You look great in blues! But that lip color suits you even more, I think!
Aww, thanks much! I like the subtleness of this lippy
Such a stunning eyeshadow palette. These shades definitely suit you.
Mahalo! I like this eyeshadow palette from Viseart
Such a pretty look!
Women including me often shy away from blue shadow, but I really love how you've used it. And it looks perfect with your denim shirt. I don't have that particular Viseart palette (I bought the Paris Nudes instead) but it looks lovely.
Thanks Allison, I feel you. Blue is generally a tricky shade. I was originally gonna name this post denim Blues coz I was wearing blue top, great eye!
I love you in blue.
Love your look. That Tom Ford compact looks beautiful!
I'm lusting over that TF blush, it's so gorgeous!
So soft and pretty Kath! Love that Viseart purple shade. The Tom Ford Contouring Compact is to-die-for and the lipstick looks gorge on you! Really love this look!
Lovely look! Those shadow shades are really lovely.
This is a beautiful look. Blues are so hard for me put together.
Hands down the perfect way to wear blue. I love it!
