Want to wear your favourite blue dress for a prom, wedding or any party but are not sure of how to do your makeup for a blue dress? You may think that your basic makeup is sufficient to go with any dress. But why stick to a plain old look that you have worn to every party when you can create a striking and elegant look to complement your blue dress? You can create a lovely look with the right makeup and we are here to help you with the same. Here’s what you can implement to make your features pop and exude class through your makeup for a blue dress.
• Base makeup
For your blue dress makeup to stand out and look perfect, you need base makeup to support it. Start your face makeup by using a primer to create a smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup. Follow this step by applying foundation to create an even complexion with a natural finish. Then, use a brightening concealer to highlight certain parts of your face such as your eye contours and the top of your cheekbones. You can find your perfect concealer shade match by using the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool and go for a shade or two lighter. Lastly, seal the base by using powder.
The cheeks should not be the focus of your blue dress makeup look, but they are just as important. Blue is a cool colour and so, a warm blush such as coral or peach would work well as it prevents making you look washed out and an unhealthy pallor. However, if you wish to go for a dramatic look and make your cheeks look all red and rosy, opt for a wine blush. Take your makeup for a blue dress up a notch, apply a highlighter on your cheekbones in an upward motion, and then, apply it to the bridge and tip of your nose and on your cupid’s bow.

Your eyes should speak volumes with an alluring blue dress. You must remember that good eye makeup for a blue dress can do wonders to your look. Feminine eyes work well with a powerful and gender-neutral colour like blue. Start your makeup for a blue dress by shaping your eyebrows. Remember, metallic, smokey eyes with wingtips or cut crease eyes are some of the classic eye makeup for a blue dress that works up magic. When wearing navy blue, the metallic component in your eyes could be gold and shimmery. However, if you plan to wear a cool blue dress, add a coloured eyeshadow and a coloured eyeliner to your eyes. Give your eyelashes two coats of mascara for the perfect finish.
