Blue is Back, Part I: Green-Blue Eye Shadows

Blue makeup is back, and I'm not talking about subtle icy pastels or navys. I mean bold turquoise, ocean and sea-foam greeny-blue hues! If you think that you can't pull these off because of your eye color, think again! These new shades have no rules. Just remember a few helpful hints and you'll look fab this fall.

Choose shades that aren't too matchy with your eye color, and remember to blend well! Also, if you are going to wear bold, daring color on your eyes, then keep the rest of your makeup light.

Dior Eye Show in Aquadelic ($30) is a creamy, soufflé-textured, waterproof eye shadow that puts other color pots to shame. You just need a super-small amount to make a big impression! These shadows used to be the secret of Dior makeup artists, but now they are available to the masses!

For two more green-blue eye shadows,

Lancome Color Design Eye Shadow in Excursion ($15) is a highly pigmented greenish-blue shadow that glides on effortlessly and has incredible staying power thanks to its new Micro-Air technology.

Colorescience Genie Sparkle Eye Shadow in Sea Of Love ($17.50) is a marine blue shadow with a metallic sheen. This mineral shadow is great for your skin, and will put the perfect amount of twinkle in your eye. These shadows can be used wet or dry, and they contain SPF protection!
