From my generation, the average age that most of us began wearing makeup starts around twelve to fourteen years old. We didn’t YouTube tutorials, hell, we didn’t even have the internet. Hit me up on that house phone! As for me I was in the 4th grade.

Blue Eye Shadow
Call my mom crazy or give her mad props for allowing me to make my own decisions. I felt like I had access to some sort of beauty treasure chest each time I opened that compact.
All though I was allowed to wear makeup, there was still a few rules.
- I was only allowed to wear light blue eye shadow
- If I did wear it, I had to have the “Mom Stamp of Approval”
But, 4th grade… That’s what? Nine or Ten years old? Without giving away my age it was the late 90’s – early 2000’s for me. This light blue shimmer shadow was in again from the time when my mom rocked it.
Fast forward a few decades and the blue eye shadow is back with a fashionable upgrade. I have to admit, I haven’t worn it since grade school but after seeing this new wave of eye shadow trends, I am on board. (Bonus points if you caught my boat pun!)
With spring already here and summer right around the corner, here are eight fresh ways to wear the blue eye shadow trend. 2017 edition.
