Hello, I'm Erin Hendley a professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to answer your question what eye shadows work best with a royal blue dress? We have our royal blue dress here and the blue is pretty bright we do have different blues on the scale varying from this to royal blue, varying from this color royal blue to a navy. So royal blue is pretty bright and vibrant and normally I like to recommend neutral colors if we have something bright on, on the bottom because it's so close to the face, but we can have a little bit of fun with this. So what we're going to do is go back to the color theory roll and that is, is that blue has an opposite complementary color on the color wheel and that color is orange. So we're going to go in with an orange color the eyes now I'm not talking about a super bright orange, but it is in the orange family, it's pretty peach and it's matte so it's going to be acceptable and actually read quite neutral. So we're going to go in and just place it on the bow of the eye, really just creating it seamless with a fluffy brush, it doesn't take a lot of effort. The color is really just warming up the skin and it's a pretty nice color for anybody that has red undertones or blue undertones. Peach is pretty much that go to color that warms up the skin and just makes you feel a little more alive. And it's not overpowering this blue dress that we have going on, reads quite neutral, but especially in the sun you'll be able to tell how bright the eyes appear because we having this orange playoff the blue complementing each other. It's a science and a art. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you an eye shadow that would work well with a royal blue dress.
