The most elegant look with a black dress and blue eyes would be the "smoky eyes" look. Start with a medium blue shadow from the bottom of your eyelid to the crease. Next apply a gray shadow on the outer half of your eyelid, from the bottom of the lid to the crease, kind of smudging with your finger. Line the top and bottom lashes slightly past outer corners with a black kohl pencil. Smudge liner with a cotton swab or fingertips. If you're looking for something a little more advanced, before applying black mascara, apply a purple/mauve eye shadow from the lid to the crease, (instead of blue) becoming less intense toward the outer corners. Curl lashes and apply mascara for maximum intensity.
