The Best Ways to Wear Blue Eye Shadow

The dramatic eyes at Versace’s fall 2009 show were deep and mysterious, played up by makeup artist Pat McGrath with a “metallic midnight-blue.” Cobalt peepers also provided pops of color at Nicole Miller, Rebecca Taylor, and Tibi, suggesting that blue eyes are more than a passing fancy. But if you’re wary of the trend—unable to suppress memories of Mimi Bobeck’s scary turquoise shadow on The Drew Carey Show—McGrath, global creative design director for P&G Beauty, offers encouragement.

“When you go out at night, be brave and play with color,” says the makeup guru. “It’s all about having fun with your makeup.” And if the runway looks are too bold for your taste, don’t worry—there are equally stylish, more subtle alternatives. “You can do a classic smoky eye and add a little blue at the center of the lid. Or you can opt for just a flash of color by doing a wet blue dot on the inner corner of the eye,” says McGrath. “You can also blend blue eye shadow with a brown one and do a small tick at the outer edges with blue eye liner.”
