The Best Blue Eye Makeup for Summer
Blue eyeshadow is one of the top eye makeup trends this year. From dark rich blues to light shimmering blues and bold teal, can find numerous shades of blue in eyeshadow palettes, cream shadow, and eyeshadow pencils. Honestly I didn't even have to search "blue eyeshadow" to find which products I wanted to showcase in this article. A quick search of current eyeshadow palettes, and it was clear to see that blue is the most popular this summer when it comes to bold color.

You don't have to be afraid of the bold eyeshadow choice. Even the richest eyeshadows this year are so versatile in that you can apply them as sheer as you want, or you can pile them on or apply them wet for a bolder look. If you want to play it safe, go with a shimmery ice blue, like one from this Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio below or go with the blue-liner trend. For a darker blue but subtle finish that is very blendable, try this L'oreal Paris Colour Riche Dual Effects in 280 Eternal Blue.
