Tips that help you rock blue eye­shad­ows.

Bring at­ten­tion to your eyes with pops of this colour. As most of us have brown eyes, cooler shades of blue will make the whites of our eyes ap­pear brighter!

QWhat’s the key to nail­ing blue eye makeup that com­ple­ments Asian skin tones?

Con­trary to pop­u­lar be­lief, blue eye­shadow ac­tu­ally suits all skin tones! It largely de­pends on what makeup looks you wish to cre­ate. Baby blue looks girly, sweet and youth­ful on fairer skin. For those with a darker skin tone, it can be ap­plied on your en­tire eye­lid or just the in­ner cor­ner to add a bright pop of colour. Navy blue al­ways makes the eyes look more mys­te­ri­ous and dreamy on fairer skin tones. On darker skin, it looks bold, mod­ern and fash­ion­able. Retro is hot right now, which means groovy is the new glam. Elec­tric blue will en­hance your eye makeup and make the look more cap­ti­vat­ing.

QWhat brush do you rec­om­mend to ap­ply colours with max­i­mum im­pact on the lid?

I highly rec­om­mend the NARS #40 Eye­shadow Brush as it de­posits a per­fect amount of pig­ment.

QWhat does an eye primer do?

It’ll help to keep cream and pow­der eye­shad­ows look­ing fresh and vi­brant (as if they’ve just been ap­plied) all day with no creas­ing. At NARS, we have a trans­par­ent eye primer and the new NARS Tinted Smudge Proof Eye­shadow Base in four skin-tone shades (light, medium, medium-dark and dark).

QWhich is bet­ter in terms of longevity: cream or pow­der eye­shadow?

I would rec­om­mend that you use both cream and pow­der eye­shadow to­gether. Use cream as your base colour, fol­lowed by pow­der.

QHow can be­gin­ners suc­cess­fully pull off colour­ful eye looks?

You can try to pick pas­tel colours as it’s eas­ier to con­trol their in­ten­sity. Then, ap­ply some loose pow­der un­der the eyes to pre­vent residue from stick­ing to the skin. When it comes to blue eye makeup, do keep the colour of the cheeks and lips soft, so there isn’t a clash and the fo­cal point is the eyes.
