It was hard not to fall in love with the dramatic navy blue shadow seen at Rodarte’s Spring 2012 show, especially when makeup artist James Kaliardos likened the metallic flecked blue to Van Gogh’s “Starry Night.”

Try this look instead of your typical black smoky eye – it has a softer effect and it’s always fun to play with colour. The shade is just as gorgeous for fall and we’re a fan of Estée Lauder’s new eyeshadow duo in Clouds.

The shimmery navy colour will give you the same midnight blue effect, while the silvery white is a perfect brow bone highlight. The duo is great for achieving smoldering eyes for a night out, and who doesn’t want that? – Melanie Kerr
