[unpaid/ad/sample/affiliate] Getting blue right is something that many brands struggle with – remembering back to when I created my Fortune Favours The Brave palette with Make Up Revolution, the blue colour was the one we really struggled with because they have a tendency to shift green or just not deliver a blue enough blue. However, in the Charlotte Tilbury Super Blue Palette, they have it absolutely perfect.
Actually, I’ll go so far as to say it’s the best blue I think I’ve come across because it’s so vibrant and so dense. The brand is referring to the four new palettes as ‘colour coded’ and this particular colour-way is designed to bring out amber tones in brown eyes (which is a very welcome PR touch to send me the right palette for my eyes rather than dropping the lot). The other palettes are Copper Charge for Blue Eyes (nothing makes blue eyes pop more than sunset shades), Green Lights to amplify green and gold tones in hazel eyes and Mesmerising Maroon to boost green eyes. They all work on the simple colour principles that opposites make eye colours pop while neighbour shades amplify and enhance.
For each palette, there is a double-ended eye liner as an option too. Mine is black navy with electric blue – I’ve got to admit that I am very taken with it.
I’m trying to pluck up courage to do an Instagram video with this – but the shades are so strong, I could easily get it wrong without some practice – and I try not to practice ahead because I think you should see it as it really is, not a refined and practised version. I might have to give this a go alone first though (PS: I have now done this – top tip is to use the electric blue shade with a wet brush to get the full colour intensity).
I mean, you can see just how vibrant these colours are. There’s no doubt that this blue will bring your brown eyes to life – it’s absolutely beautiful – but if you feel daunted, the liner HERE is your friend. I’d use a hazel-ish shade that I already have as a base and do a close-to-lash line, a little bit smudged if you’re worried about precision, in the blue and I’d then use the navy as a kohl and add black mascara. The Palettes HERE are £40 (non affiliate HERE) and the liners are £21.
