Shades of Blue: Ginnifer Goodwin, Mindy Kaling, and Amy Adams

One of the big runway trends during the spring shows was bright blue eyeshadows, in shades ranging from turquoise to teal, from dusky sapphire to deep navy. Here are three celebrities successfully wearing the trend: Ginnifer Goodwin in a matte teal, Mindy Kaling in matte cobalt, and Amy Adams in a rich navy.

Biscayne Bay

ColorOn offers you a nice range of blue-based instant eye shadow looks, from the sweetest pastels to the deepest midnight. For a sunny summer day, try any of the shades from the Eye Envy Tropics Kit: Biscayne Bay, South Beach or Key West.

Dusky Twilight

For a deeper cobalt look, try Dusky Twilight from the Painted Desert Variety Kit. Create a dusky, doe-eyed look with this combination of dusty denim blue and sheer indigo, with a pop of the paler color at the center of the eyelid.

For a delicate pastel look, try Grace or Charm from the Eye Envy Rhapsody in Gray Variety Kit. Grace is a pop of cool blue and soft grey, like the early morning tropical skies. Charm is a beautiful, summery smoky eye in cool tones of chilly blue and grey.

If you want to take your blues out on the town, two shimmery tri-color looks are sure to grab the spotlight. Camera Ready is a prismatic combination of reflective sapphire at the outer corners shading inward to platinum to crushed mint at the inner corners.

Avatare is another prismatic wash, starting with a deep glittering navy at the outer corner of the eye, shading to a bright pop of citron and back to sky blue at the inner corners. These two shades are only available in Custom Kits.

All of the colors mentioned can be combined and purchased as a Custom Kit , or you can instead buy the Variety Kit  in which they’re featured. Either way, same price. There are 78 instant eye shadow looks and 24 pre-selected Variety Kits. And stock up on the 11 Smooth Shimmers or 7 Metallic Glitters loose mineral shadows while you’re at it; some are limited editions and won’t be around forever!
