over time i've collected 3 blue eyeshadow palettes.
it took me some time to figure out how to wear it for daytime purpose without scaring the crap out of people.
"did she just come from the circus?" i wouldn't wanna illicit this kind of response!

this is how i wear blue eyeshadow in the day,
i think the main point is to use the darker shades of blue only as an accent and not the main colour you'd apply all over your lid.
also, i did away with lining my lower lash line with the blue to keep the look light and summery (instead i lined it lightly with a matte brown colour just to fake the luscious lashes look).

got some help from my friend in giving this look a name, since i can't think of anything edible that is blue and metallic.

i love the baked eyeshadow from pupa,
it reveals a slightly different shade at different angles, what a surprise!
and the colour is a electric blue that shows up so well!!!
super pigmented product.

i kept the blue within my lids so that when i open my eyes it produces a clean look instead of the smokey look effect (which isn't very suitable for day time).

when viewed at different angles, you can see the blue shadow change its tone!

i think this is a great way to wear colour eyeshadows/eyeliners :)
