I have been dabbling around with various blue-gray combinations to coordinate with my wardrobe. This is, by far, my favorite; the smoky intensity of the Clarins palette can vary according to preference – perfect for Day and Night!

Day Look
Revlon’s jewel-toned blue brings out the violet-blue shimmers from the Estée Lauder Fall Palette as opposed to Clarins’s navy blue. I then layered over with the grey shade and blend towards the crease, followed with the shimmery periwinkle on the inner 1/3 of my eyes and correspond respectively on the lower lashes.

Night Look
Basically for the transition was simply adding a punch of seafoam over the periwinkle for a dazzling evening.

    I have a similar palette and didn’t think to use it like that for a smokey look because the eyeshadows are too sheer I shall give it a try, thanks! I like the Armani eyeshadow too!

  2. Karen says:

    Wow! I steer clear from this combo because it look weird in the end. But you pull it off quite well! The seafoam color is soooo pretty!

    So pretty Joyce, I love that you can get the colours to show up so well in your pictures. I always have a tough time.

    Hi Joyce,
    I rarely wear blue but I like to see women wearing blue eyeshadow. May I ask where did you get that Revlon Illuminance cream shadow?
