Tuesday To-Do: Blue Eyeshadow
Spring ’14′s best eye makeup look has taken a turn towards the sky and sea with a resurgence of blue hued shadow, liner and even mascara. NOTE: This is not your mother’s baby blue eyeshadow. Instead, it’s a turn towards a darker blue palette, like navy, indigo, cobalt and even an enviable sheer indigo—and stars like Beyonce, Emmy Rossum and Emma Stone are all trying this look on for size.
For a modern take on this classic color, try a highly pigmented cobalt shadow or liner boldly making a statement on the trend. Or stick with a reverse ombre, starting with navy liner and moving up over the entire eyelid blending to a sheer finish just before the eyebrow. A softer look will include choosing a sheer gray-toned blue which will highlight most any eye color, looking of-the-moment without going over the top. Or just throw caution to the wind and create a mermaid-ish holographic smokey eye with shimmering aqua, green or violet-toned blue shadows.
The look also played double duty as liner and highly pigmented eyelid stain at both Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs S/S 14 catwalk, and also seen at the Badgley Mischka S/S 14 presentation and Miu Miu S/S 14—all in preparation for hitting your own cosmetics case this season. So what are you waiting for?
