Blue eye makeup - how not to look like an 80s pop star

As you all know, I am not immune to wearing all colours. All. But blue eye makeup has always sent a shiver down my spine. If you don't end up looking like Cyndi Lauper circa 1987, you can look like you just stepped out of a deep freezer and it's going to take years to thaw out. HOWEVER. I like a challenge. I got out my tools and I think I've worked out how to do this right. First of all, if you have dark circles, blue is not going to do you any favours. I use eye firming cream before applying concealer or BB cream to give the smoothest base to work from. Blue is super flattering on pale, olive and dark skin. It's a matter of finding the right shade. Do NOT convince yourself you are in a Robert Palmer video and add red lips to boot. Make your eyes the feature of your look and go for a light lip tint or balm. I couldn't go past Clinique Chubby Stick (because it's chubby! How cute!) in Massive Midnight (sounds like some sort of goth party...) but I am equally enamoured of Dior Crayon Liner in Blue (waterproof...important.)
