Applying eye primer

1. Prepare your face

Start with a clean and moisturized face. 

Then, apply primer to your face to create a smooth base for makeup. 

Use an eye primer specifically on your eyelids to enhance the longevity and vibrancy of your eyeshadow.

Blue eyeshadow palette

2. Choose your eyeshadow palette

Select an eyeshadow palette suitable for older faces, preferably with matte shades.

I prefer a cool blue palette, but if you are looking for a dramatic look you can opt for a brighter blue palette. 

Use a powder blue eyeshadow as a base. Apply it all over your eyelids for a soft wash of color.

Defining the eyes

3. Define your eyes

Apply blue eyeliner along your upper lash line. For a softer look, blend the eyeliner into your lash line using an eyeliner brush. 

Choose a deeper blue shade.

Defining the eyes

Use the same eyeliner brush to apply the deeper shade along your lash line and into the crease, creating a V shape at the outer corner for added dimension.

Applying mascara

4. Enhance your lashes

Finish your eye makeup by applying navy mascara to your lashes for a coordinated look.

Adding accessories

5. Complete your look

Consider adding accessories like blue earrings and a scarf to complement your makeup.

Applying lipstick

6. Don’t forget lipstick

Apply your favorite lipstick, such as a soft plum shade, to finish off the look.

Check your overall appearance in the mirror to ensure everything looks cohesive. 

Assess whether the blue eyeshadow complements your eye color and skin tone.

    I use this method with green tones and it really complements my autumn coloring. And why didn't you include brows and blush to this makeup routine?
