Going blue...

I have a confession. I sometimes wear blue eyeshadow.



My mom always wore blue eyeshadow. But she had blue eyes. And when I was little, I thought nothing was prettier than smearing blue eyeshadow above my hazel eyes. But then, back in the 90's when I actually wore makeup, I wouldn't have been caught dead wearing blue eyeshadow. It spelled everything that was 80's and lame; much to uncool for my wanna-be goth self. Hmph.


But I bought some new eyeshadows this year. And one of them is blue. And I feel a little guilty when I wear it. It's not like I slather it on so that you can really tell it's blue. But I kind of like it.


So I'm asking, dear internet readers, is blue eyeshadow completely innappropriate? Am I being too uncool for words? Or can I let the part of me that is still a little bit goth roll her eyes at me and then tell her to leave me alone? 'Cause it seems a waste to let new pretty makeup go by the wayside, right?

I don't know a thing about the lastest trends but I sometimes where colors that I probably shouldn't but I don't think anyone can even tell because like you said, I never put on very much.

I wear blue eyeshadow sometimes. I pretty much suck at make-up, though.

I totally think you can wear blue eyeshadow. personally I think the color doesn't matter as much as the application. If you wear it like Mom used to wear it, though, that might be a problem! ;)

My personal favorite eyeshadow color is purple!

I am so NOT the person to ask about fashion, so I will just say, as long as you don't look like Tammy Fae, I have no problem with blue eyeshadow LOL
