Trending: Blue Eye Make-up

A colour a lot of people normally associate with grandma is trending for spring 2014. I’ve been seeing bright blue eye make-up everywhere!

Even though I’m a make-up artist and I’m obsessed with colour, I always steered clear of bright blues on clients as it is quite hard to pull it off for so many skin tones – and quite frankly is never really requested by clients.

However, I’m absolutely loving the looks created back stage. They are so bold and edgy yet simple.

If you would love to try out blue eye make-up but you’re not too sure how to go about it or whether it will suit you, try starting with small accents of the colour, for example:

– blue mascara

– a tiny hint of blue in the inner or outer corner of the eye

–  lining your water line

–  a gorgeous dark blue gel liner on the lid (Taylor swift at the Grammys)

There are many ways you can incorporate a small amount into your look. I will most definitely be going blue for a change and pairing it with a peachy/orange lip for ultimate colour contrast!

Will you be trying out this trend?
