Do you want to try blue eye makeup? Here’s how to pull off one of the season’s best eyeliner looks, plus how to keep it looking fresh.
Blue eye makeup isn’t just for #TBTs anymore; the famous ’80s-era statement style is making a comeback in a big way. It’s one of the season’s most daring eyeliner looks—and, to be honest, the most enjoyable. It’s all about the application to make this electric eyeliner trend feel current and not retro. For expert advice on how to use blue eye makeup this summer, keep reading.
Make sure your lids are ready
Even if your eyeliner is a little smudgy, you can still look stylish. Wayward blue, on the other hand, looks sloppy, unlike other eyeliner looks. So, first and foremost: Prep your entire lid with an eyeshadow primer (even if you’re not planning to apply eyeshadow) if you have oily or a combination of skin types that would encourage blue eye makeup to transfer or wander away from the lash line. After that, use a light dusting of translucent loose powder to set the area. Now is the time to pull out your favorite blue eyeliner.
Choose the appropriate pencil
Look for a blue eyeliner with a lot of pigment that will last all day and night. The smudge-resistant color applies effortlessly and lasts up to 24 hours. You may even use blue eyeliner to draw a line across your waterline.
Experiment with different ways to wear it
Because blue eye makeup is inherently whimsical, don’t be afraid to draw the line(s) any way you choose. You may create a sharp cat-eye on an otherwise naked lid by applying the brilliant blue eyeliner in a timeless classic design. Go for a big, extended wing instead than a delicate feline flick. If you’re having trouble with your graphic eyeliner, try this hack: Make a little dot with your blue eyeliner where each wing will stop to ensure they’re a (symmetrical) matching set. You may also draw the blue eyeliner in little strokes and then link them to make it appear as though you applied it in a single sweep.
You may also trace blue eyeliner on both your upper and lower lash lines for a double-whammy effect. Still haven’t had your fill? Apply a subtle wash of blue eyeshadow on your lids, then add drama with Cobalt Blue Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner.
Keep the rest of your makeup simple
What is the best method to wear blue eye makeup in a modern setting? On the rest of your face, avoid clashing colors. Consider this your summer beauty routine in a nutshell: Allow your face to breathe (no excessive blush or contouring required), choose a neutral-toned or nude lip, and groom your brows with just a touch of Brow Stylist Boost & Set. Allow your blue eye makeup to speak for itself—let the appearance speak for itself.
