    Natural Makeup for Blue Eyes

    daytime makeup look for blue eyes
    • Start with Oyster, the base shade from your goBlue Eye Steppes. Use the Oval Blender Brush to sweep it over the entire lid, right up to the brow bone.
    • Next, apply Taupe to the crease with the Chisel Shader Brush.
    • Clean off the Chisel Shader and use it to press Smoke into the outer fourth of the eye, from the lash line into the crease.
    • Blend everything to an edgeless finish with the Oval Blender.
    • Use Rosy to line under the lower lash line with the Mini Dome Brush.

    Now for Makeup with More Drama...

    nighttime makeup look for blue eyes
    • Start by applying Oyster to the inner third of the lid and the brow bone. The Deluxe Shader Brush works well for this.
    • Use the Chisel Shader to sweep Taupe onto the outer third of the eye from the lash line all the way to the brow bone.
    • Go right over that with Smoke from the lash line to the crease. Really press it in there if you want some nice intensity. Keep layering until you like it.
    • Next, clean off your brush well and press Rosy into the center of the lid, from the lash line to the crease.
    • Use the Mini Dome to apply Swiss Chocolate (yum!) to the outer three-quarters of the lower lash line.
    • Blend everything well with the Oval Blender, and be sure to give it a good mist with Hydration Spray. This is a secret to keeping intense eye makeup from looking overdone.

    One final tip: if you don't have an array of brushes (and really, you should!) the Chisel Shader is a workhorse that can perform every task in these looks, depending on how you hold it.
