That's my exact problem.
I feel very uneasy about myself in blue shadows.
Also mutiny is a disappointing pigment to me.

hmm yeah i have that problem too - love the colour but its hard to work with.

i usually use it in a turquoise smokey eye - with green on the inner half (springtime skipper), and mutiny on the outer half then i layer a colour like steamy into the outer v. and to stop it looking insanely bright i darken the outer v and crease with a dark navy/grey/black.
when you put eyeliner, mascara and highlight on its not so in yo face.

aallso i use it a lot as a pop of colour on my lower lid if im just playing around with neutrals!

If you want to go with a blue heavy look but don't want to look scary, use a neutral or cool cream/beige colour on the inside half of the eyelid, then go blue. Works for me.

But some people probably think my make up looks like a hookers, soo... Very Happy

Blue looks wicked with gold, Lil. And bronze. Just try stuff!

try neutral on the lid and blue in the crease. or maybe just neutral on the lid, and the blue on the bottom lash line. You can also try it in the crease with a base shade of pink, pale/light green, lilac, etc. Kendra's very right when she says blue looks great with gold and bronze. Urban Decay did a palette with blues and bronzes, and did their summer promo with those colours.

I always use my blue Barry M shadows with my MAC bronze shadow on top, and then the blue on the bottom lash line with No.7 blue eyeliner on the waterline, and sometimes on the top of the lid too. So that then you can see the blue is there without it looking too trashy Smile
