Colour inspiration - cobalt

Every Wednesday, I’ll be posting something new or old that has inspired me, in the hope that it will inspire you too. I am always finding inspiration in both the strangest and most ordinary of places.

Colour is my biggest inspiration, and I have been in love with strong cobalt blue shades for years now. I often use it as an accent colour or line my eyes with a blue shadow against a smokey eye.

I posted these block colour blue eye looks on MakeupBee a few months ago and opinions were polarised.
Comments ranged from stunning to clown-like. With a strong colour like cobalt blue, I expected very mixed opinions. What do you think? How would you rock blue eyeshadow?
