I love adding blue to my eye-makeup looks because the combo somehow seems to go with everything. OK, that AND I just love blue.

This is one of my favorite colorful looks to do, and here's how to do it!

I start off with a little white eyeshadow on my lid and under my brow for a highlight using my MAC 239 brush and Liberatus from the Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Contour Palette.

Now I'm going in with my fluffy blending brush (I'm using MAC 217) and adding a warm eyeshadow in my crease/above my crease a bit. I'm using Ludwin from the same Kat Von D palette. Sometimes I'll just use a warm eyeshadow and just go all the way from the lid to just above my crease for a bit more color.

I've already gone and added a quick winged liner to my upper lash line using my Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. I've also put on Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara and added Smokey Muse Lashes by House of Lashes.

Next, I added some waterproof blue eyeliner on my waterline and into my lash line. I'm using MAC Pro Longwear Eyeliner in Mountain Air.

Here I'm just using my dome-shaped brush and blending out the eyeliner with some blue shadow. I'm using MAC Eyeshadow in Freshwater and a brush I got from my makeup school. Sometimes I'll use MAC's Steamy eyeshadow for a more dimensional look.

I think it's a nice little pop of color, and it makes me feel a lot brighter and happier. You can always add less liner and eyeshadow to make the look more subtle; I just like the intensity factor, personally.
