Blue & Bronze Eye with UD Vice Palette

When you're getting ready for the day, it's so easy to reach for the nude shadows. They're simple and safe. Using color (especially blue) can be a little scary, but I'm going to show you how I like to incorporate blue into my look every now and then. Follow the jump to see how I created this defining look.

Blue shadow can be a beautiful color to complement brown eyes and it doesn't have to look clownish or crazy. I love to use deep jewel-toned blues most of the time and it helps to define my brown eyes. In this case, I applied a rich brown on my lid and then used a bright blue layered over top. When mixed, it created a beautiful deeper blue hue.

I used shadows from the Urban Decay Vice Palette to create this look. Here are all the shadows I used:

Muse - golden brown
Penny Lane - copper shimmer
Chaos - bright blue
Anonymous -  light cream

Other products used for this look:
Noir Long-Wear Eyeliner (from my Birchbox haul)
IT Cosmetics Tightline
IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes Mascara

I started with Muse all over the lid and brought a little down to the lower lashline. I also swept Penny lane into my crease to help blend out the edges of Muse. Anonymous is under my brow as a highlight.

Here is where I added Chaos to the outer part of my lid, making sure to blend it well with Muse. 

I added black pencil liner to my lashlines.

I used both IT Cosmetics Tightline Primer and Hello Lashes Mascara on my lashes. Find my review of them here.

Here's another view of the whole look.

I think this is a great way to add color to your eye look without going too bright. At a distance, it looks like a normal smokey eye, but up close you can see a subtle hint of blue. I love wearing this look because it makes my brown eyes stand out.

What colors do you wear on your lids?
