While we love the colour blue, best known for being associated with harmony, calm and confidence, it seems some of our favourite celebrities are also hooked, picking bold blues eyeshadow for night and day. Blue’s also been ruling the catwalks at New York Fashion Week’14, being spotted on models in next season looks.
One star who has certainly promoted the blue makeup trend is our new Hollywood favourite, Lupita Nyongo. She rocked the recent SAG Awards red carpet in a beautiful Turquoise Gucci dress, matched by a pop of shimmering blue on her eyes. The star’s shadow was focused on the inner corners of her eyes, which meant we had no choice but to see it whichever way she turned.
Our favourite product for achieving this trend is Covergirl’s “Queen” collection eyeshadow quad (from $8 on Amazon), which gives you the freedom to choose from a choice of brilliant blues.
To wear it, apply the lightest shade of shadow on your browbone, the next lightest shade on your lid, the third in the crease and the fourth and darkest shadow at the crease edge, to add depth and give some contour.
All you need to do next is throw on your favourite blue dress and like Lupita, you are good to go.
