Ashley James gave us a little make-up inspiration this week when she proved just how amazing blue eyeshadow can look... if you do it right!

The former Made In Chelsea star showed off her sparkling eye make-up on Wednesday night as she joined Michelle Keegan at a party to launch her new Lipsy collection.

Ashley goes all matchy matchy with her outfit, eyes AND eye make-up! 21 October 2015

Ashley looked stunning at the event, dressed in a striking blue lace crop top, £32 and pencil skirt, £38 from Michelle's new collection.

And she matched the electric blue outfit with her eyeshadow to create a gorgeous look that worked perfectly with her crystal blue eyes, creamy pale skin and blonde hair.

This was all thanks to her make-up artist Emily-Jane Williams who cleverly proved you don't always have to contrast your eye make-up with your natural eye colour to make them pop.

Emily used a couple of Colour Pop Cosmetics Super Shock Eyeshadows on Ashley's eyes – a cute Californian brand of make-up that's sadly a little tricky to find over here.

You could try MAC Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Electric Eel, £13, however, or we also love Barry M Dazzle Dust in Electrc Blue, £4.59,

Just remember to create this look as you would any kind of smoky eye.

This means you'll need to apply a pale, highlighting shade in the inner corners of your eyes and above the creaseline. The bright, medium-toned blue should be worked over your lid and under the bottom lashline, and a slightly darker tone can be built up towards the outer corners.

Finish with some dark eyeliner, plenty of mascara or false eyelashes and some nude lips for the perfect, Ashley-esque look.

Totes gorge.
