FOTD: How Do You Do Blue?

I personally love to switch up my eyeshadow and one way I like to do that is to add a fun color into mix like blue! With that said, I don't want to go crazy overboard with it, but I still want it to be different and exciting. This is how I do blue.

Going easy on the eyes, I used Urban Decay's Eyeshadow in Virgin from lash line to browbone using a shader brush (such as the EcoTools Shader Brush) for a soft satiny neutral color that is easy to build off of. Next, I used a pencil brush (Sigma E-30 Pencil) dipped in LORAC Baked Eyeshadow in Insider and started applying from the outer corner to the crease. Once blended into the crease and outer corner at the desired level of color I finish off the look by blending harsh edges with a fluffy blending brush (like the Sigma E-40 Tapered Blending).  Then I finish by taking the color down to the outer lower eye rim and used a single coat of Urban Decay's Supercurl Curling Mascara and Urban Decay's Naked Eyeshadow to fill in my brows.

To contrast the all the blue going on in the eyes I went with a matte pink cheek using E.L.F. Powder Blush in Passion Pink applied using a stippling brush like the Sigma F-50 Duo Fibre. Then I lightly contoured using the bronzer from the E.L.F. Studio Contouring Duo.

To keep the lips a natural pink I used Benefit's Posietint topped with a clear gloss like Essence XXL Shine Gloss.

So tell me, how do you do blue?
