Ben Nye Lumiere Grande Colour Palette & Cosmic Blue

Blue and I have made amends. Blue eyeshadow that is. I have always kept my distance from blue eyeshadow whenever possible. I always thought it just didn't look well on my complexion. Lately I have had to rethink my relationship with blues. So far we are on speaking terms as more of acquaintances. 

I guess anything is possible. This change of heart was brought on last week. The Wet n Wild Pop Art Craze Palette in A Regular at the Factory had a blue that looked so awesome when applied. 

Then I used my Ben Nye Lumiere Grande Colour Palette this weekend and I used a little of the Cosmic Blue in the rainbow look I created. The Cosmic Blue shade also looked good once I applied it. At this point I threw out all, ok maybe most of my hard feelings against blues. I am still unsure of Dark Blue though. 

Due to my great experience with my Ben Nye Grande Colour Palette this weekend  I decided to use it again for today's look. And guess what? I decided to use my new buddy Cosmic Blue. 

Here's how I created today's look:

1st third of the lid & inner corner - Aztec Gold (gold shimmer)

Rest of the Lid - Ice (white shimmer)

Crease - Cosmic Blue (blue shimmer)

Eyeliner on top lid & under the eye - L'Oreal Infallible 24 hr in Espresso 

Under the eye to set liner - Iced Gold (white gold shimmer)

Mascara - Covergirl Lash Blast Volume

Blush - e.l.f. Pinktastic

What is your relationship with blue eyeshadows?
