Bold Blue and Orange Eyes

I love this color combo, butI don't think I've ever shared it with you before. I've worn it...but never took photos. Blue and orange, on a color wheel, are contracting colors. Put together, they create a striking look that's gorgeous for brown eyes. Of course any eye color can wear it, but brown eyes...*swoon*.

For step-by-step instructions on how to achieve this look, and a full list of the products I used, just keep reading!

1. Apply a primer and base to your eye area.
2. To the lid, apply a shimmery deep blue.
3. At the edge of the blue, blend a matte orange eyeshadow. Continue blending the orange onto your optical bone.
4. Highlight your browbone with a matte cream colored eyeshadow.
5. Blend a reddish brown into your crease where the blue and orange meet.
6. To the outer V of your eye, apply a dark brown.
7. Using the same blue, go along your bottom lashline, extending the line outward and upward to create a wing.
8. Apply a shimmery cream colored eyeshadow to your inner corner.
9. Softly line your upper lashline with a black eyeshadow.
10. Apply mascara and lashes, and you're done!
