Eyeshadow Tips: Blue + Brown = Hotness

Pairing blue with brown is a hottt look for the summer. Want proof? Just look at the print ad from Shu Uemuera on the left. Makeup companies are also putting both shades in their eyeshadow palettes.

Examples:
* Hard Candy Eyeshadow Quartet in Suede
* Estee Lauder Graphic Color EyeShadow Quad in Enigmatic Khaki
* Kate Contrasting Eyes Palette in EX-1
* Shu Uemura Pressed Eyeshadow/Glow on Palette from the Amaterasu collection
* MAC Blue Brown pigment

I did a similar look a few days ago but instead, I used MAC Surreal eyeshadow on my entire lid, MAC Zonk Bleu! eyeshadow on the crease and lined my top and bottom lashes with Jane’s Magical Mushroom eyeshadow. The result? A look that is pretty and not too over the top.

    yup Jessalyn, brown looks *hot* with green too! I have brown eyes and I wore this combo tonight – I used MAC’s Green Gamin and Greensmoke over the entire lid with Mark’s Tiki on the crease.
