Current favourite blue eyeshadows
Think blue eyeshadow and immediately think of Pat Butcher esque frosted blue shadow paired with bubble gum pink lippy and a leopard print coat. Nope? Just me then, and I DID love her earrings...these shadows are a bit more sophisticated than that. Navy, dark, deep and shimmery these are three of my favourite alternatives for creating a bold eye make up look when you're bored of the usual grey black smokey eye....
First up from left to right is the Forever Eye Shadow Pencil GOSH cosmetics in the colour Grey. This provides creamy, smooth, (very shimmery) intense colour. Water repellent and blends out wonderfully. I would say put a primer on your lids before applying as it did fade a little by the end of the night when I was wearing it just on it's own. A very pretty colour though.
In the middle is MAC eyeshadow in Deep Truth a beautiful deep metallic navy. I love this shade, MAC, you rarely disappoint.
Then lastly is the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 hr cream shadow in Everything Navy. These little pots are amazing, affordable and provide such longlasting colour, once they are set they don't budge! (I can attest to this when I have used them on shoots and am scrubbing my hand to remove them!) This shade is a great match for the MAC shadow pictured here so something I likely to do to extend the staying power is apply the cream shadow and set it with the powder over the top. Et Voila! Shadow that will last all night.
