Makeup Tips and Ideas for Your Blue Dress

Blue is not just one color but is an umbrella term for various shades of blue like, light blue turquoise blue, navy blue, dark blue, powder blue, electric blue, royal blue etc. So, most of the makeup tips are applicable to the above mentioned colors. Try these tips and idea to pair up with your blue dress and look elegant and stunning at the same time.

1. Base Makeup for blue dress

Base Makeup is something that would remain the same and does not matter what your skin color or the color of dress is. Basically, the idea of the base makeup with blue dress is to create a smooth and even toned looking skin that also looks radiant and glowing. So, first of all prep the skin using a face primer. Try using a face primer that suits the skin type For. Eg. Dry skinned girls can try a hydrating primers while the oily to combination skinned girls can use a mattifying or an oil control face primer.

Benefits of  priming:

Priming the face will not only even tone the skin but it will also make the foundation stay longer. We are sure you do not want your makeup look patchy at the end of the night or the party. Right?


Once you have primed the face with a face primer, apply the foundation that matches perfectly with your skin tone. Use a foundation brush or just your fingertips if you are comfortable with. It also depends if you would like you have a cakey makeup look or just my original skin kinda fresh look with sheer foundation only.

Too much heavy and cakey foundation looks terrible for the day time, though it can still look good for the evening makeup, if blended well. So, keep that in mind while getting ready!

Lastly, try to use translucent and loose powders to set the makeup so that it looks perfect. Even if you have used a sheer BB cream or a tinted moisturiser, then too you can try to top that off with a loose powder to set everything in place nicely.

2. Cheek Makeup and blush

Now that you are wearing a blue dress, you should keep in mind that a pop of colored blush like a red, hot pink, range etc will look mismatched and will only make you look like an exaggerated version of Barbie doll. So, keep the blush softer. Pick shades like light peachy, soft corals or even the light pinks or cinnamon shades if your skin color is dusky. When you are dark skinned then the shade of blush, selection become extremely crucial so keep it softer and more natural looking, so nothing over the top.

How to apply blush?

  • For the evening makeup you can definitely use a contour kit to make those cheekbones and jawline look chiseled.
  • Apply contouring powders to add more dimensions and apply a highlighter on the cheekbones and some on the brow bone as well.
  • This will work like magic, since highlighted face looks lovely with blue dress.

3. Eye makeup Ideas

Your dress is blue, so many of us would naturally go for blue colored eye shadows. Well, nothing is wrong in that. If that color of blush is natural and subtle looking then the eye shadows like blue can be tried with a blue colored prom dress or a blue bridesmaid dress. With blue metallic eyes looks the best. You can try a metallic blue or try gold on the eyelids and use a blue eye shadow on the crease to define your crease. If the dress is dark blue or navy blue then choose an eye shadow color matching with that. So, now you know which eye makeup you need for the navy blue dress.

  • Apply the eye base and wait for 10-15 seconds.
  • Apply the eyelid color with a flat applicator brush and pack the color by patting.

  • Now it’s time to apply the eyeliner. Try the shape that suits you the most like the regular think shape or the thick winged eyeliner.

If your dress is dark blue or navy blue then you can also try a smokey black eye makeup look but with light blue or turquoise blue try to keep the eye shadow lighter.

4. Lip Makeup

For your blue dress, you can try a neutral lip look. Like we will suggest, if you have done a dramatic eye makeup then keep the lip makeup or the color of the lipstick neutral. So, choose a light natural ink or peachy color. But if you have tone down the eye makeup then try a hot pink or even a bold orange that looks lovely with the blue colored dress. You can try red but red with blue is not the best pair is what we think. Blue dress and hot pink lipstick still looks rocking. If your dress is royal blue in color in a corally or peachy pink will look the best. With Navy blue dress, you can try red lipstick.
