For a recent date night I thought I'd test my luck and see if I could do (and pull off) a dark blue smokey eye. The verdict was positive although the only votee was my guy who, bless his heart, says I look great with zit cream on so his vote doesn't quite count (but thank you for always making me feel good T!).
Nars has this great line of 'Night Series' eyeshadows and while you can't quite tell the color is blue in this photo, thanks to my lovely bathroom lighting, I layered Night Flight on my lids for a dramatic evening look.
I kept the rest of my look simple. Natural foundation, a touch of concealer around my eyes, pale pink blush and a swipe of nude lipstick. Oh and be sure to complete the smokey eye with multiple coats of mascara.
