Winter Blues | Eyeshadow Swatches

12/6/13



I think I'm starting to get the winter blues. Then of course, with those two words in my head - winter blues - I start thinking about colours. Eventually, my mind goes to my makeup and then to my eyeshadows. So that entire train of thought got me thinking about the deepest winter blue hues in my collection. I came up with three shadows that I really love. You can wear blue at any point in the year, but deep blues are particularly fitting for this time of year. 


From left to right: NARS Tropic, MAC Deep Truth, MAC Flashtrack. 

From the swatches, it looks like there isn't a difference between Deep Truth and Flashtrack - but I can assure you that there is. Flashtrack is a blue with a black base making it much darker; it also has some thicker shimmers. Deep Truth is a deep royal blue with very subtle shine to it. My favourite out of these two is Deep Truth, since it's so rich in blue colour and I could wear it all over the lid. Flashtrack is a great crease or "v" colour for the eyes, it brings out the blue tones in the other shades you're wearing. 
I haven't had a chance to try NARS Tropic yet, but it's a beautifully stunning peacock blue with very chunky silver glitters. I'm going to have to do a tutorial for this one, since it's a shade I think would work well with other holiday tones - like golds and silvers and neutrals, or other paler winter blue shades. 

Rich and deep blues are a great way to put some colour into your makeup routine for the colder months. I love to use them as a crease or all-over lid colour to spice up the neutral shades I tend to wear through the winter season. 

What are you some of your favourite blue shades?
