You’ve mastered the vermillion lip and have your smoky eye down pat – now it’s time to add a new trick to your make-up portfolio. Presenting (drum roll, please) blue eyeliner.
We know you’re wedded to your black winged look, but the following stars make a strong case for a flick of brilliant blue: Joan Smalls looks positively radiant care of a sky blue stripe along her lower lash line, teamed with a fiery red lip; while renowned celebrity make-up artist Patrick Ta gave Olivia Munn a moodier cobalt blue under-eye for a Prada party this week.
Marion Cotillard and Emma Stone have also dipped into the trend, taking the colour to their top and bottom lids and accentuating the shade with matching eyeshadow.
Yes, blue shadow has something of a Studio 54 vibe about it, but this new minimalist approach feels fresh and infinitely more wearable. Try the Chanel Le Crayon Yeux in 19 Blue Jean or Lancôme Artliner Liquid Precision Eyeliner in 03 Blue to get the look, teamed with bronzed skin and a nude lip.
