It would seem that it is not difficult to pick up shoes for a floor-length blue dress, since shoes are practically invisible under a long skirt. However, this does not mean that you can wear any shoes without worrying about the harmonious combination.
Stylists do not recommend purchasing tone-on-tone shoes for the dress. You can wear blue shoes, but it is better if they differ in shade from the tone of the dress.
Black shoes they are quite suitable for a blue dress, however, this combination turns out to be too gloomy. Black shoes can be chosen only if the dress has a rich blue color, to light and dark shades of blue, it is better to choose a different shade of shoes.
Neutral white goes well with all shades of blue, but this combination should only be used when creating delicate summer looks.
Any shades of gray, including silver, are ideal for a blue dress. Nude shoes will also be an unmistakable choice; they are a universal model suitable for a dress of any color.
Bold fashionistas can choose shoes in a contrasting color. An ensemble of a blue floor-length dress in combination with red, green, pink shoes will look original. But when choosing colored shoes, do not forget to support the color of the shoes in the ensemble with another accessory, it can be a belt or jewelry.
A floor-length dress is an outfit that obliges you to look feminine and elegant. Therefore, makeup for such a dress must be done carefully. Particular attention should be paid to skin makeup. The problem is that the blue color fades. To look perfect, you need to even out the tone of the face. It is recommended to use bronzers to give the skin a light tan.
Makeup should focus on the eyes., as the blue dress makes the eyes of any color more expressive. When doing eye makeup, blue shadows should be avoided; shadows of gray, silver or golden hues will look much better. In evening make-up, you can use sparkles, but there should not be too much glitter.
