Black eye shadow can be pretty intimidating. It’s usually the one color in a neutral shadow compact that stays perfectly intact. But if you have baby blues, we recommend you give the color a try. Just look at Liv Tyler above. The actress wore the shadow to perfection. The key is to center the color right around the eye — on both lash lines — and then blend the color up and out lightly, transitioning into a light gray above the crease. Even using such a bold shade, this eye look is still wearable because there is little to no eye shadow near the brows.

What do you think? Would any of you blue eyed beauties use a black eye shadow?
