However, be careful when choosing your shade – too purple and you’ll look like you’ve been in a fight, too dark and it’ll look black, and make sure it’s metallic to bring out the blue. Bobbi Brown have 2 shades that a perfect for this. Their Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow is specifically designed to illuminate eyelids, and also for using as an eyeliner. The Sapphire shade, is a dark blue colour with a hint of gray, so it won’t come out too dark. There’s also a Metallic Eyeshadow in Midnight which is very similar but slightly more shimmery. Both cost £14 each.
If you can, pop into a Bobbi Brown store to try the shades out, but if not then head over to their website.
