'You CAN wear Blue' EOTD + Purple Eyeliner!

I am usually petrified sporting a blue shadow in daylight especially. I feel it suits best on those who have no dark circles and completely flawless skin as otherwise the blue makes the dark circles under the eyes appear even more evident.

However I really like this look I tried recently, as it is pretty wearable with a hint of blue in the outer corners, which means it is not taking up most of the lid space allowing you to be in your comfort zone if you are freaked out with blue just like me.

Products Used

- Benefits Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Birthday Suit as a lid color
- Indigo blue from the Sleek Bohemian Palette in the outer corners
- Mac Nobility, Texture and Tete-a-tint used to blend the shadows in the crease and upwards
- Glitter eyeliner in Queen from Make up Store
- Finished off with Artdeco's Perfect Volume Mascara

The key is to use a shimmery beige or any other shimmery neutral as the lid color and finish off with a matte indigo blue in the outer v. Wearing Blue on the eyes has not been easier!

Did you know wearing purple instead of Black or Brown eyeliner brigtens up your eyes and cancels out any redness. It makes the whites of your eyes appear even whiter. Plus this purple Graffiti Liner that I got sent from Eyeko is not a vivid one, in fact its very close to a black so wearing it on a daily basis becomes much more feasible.

Moreover the felt tip applicator it comes with makes life so much simpler. I would however suggest to pat the applicator horizontally making a line from the belly of the felt tip rather than its tip. Because the tip simply rubs off the line you have already made if you try to reapply. Applying the former way gives you a lovely thick purple line.

If you wanted to try a colored eyeliner without going overboard, give this a try for sure.

I love blue eyeshadow the best but I am absolutely petrified of wearing it because i'm Chinese and I don't want to come across as some kinda mail order bride.
