These Celebrities Prove That Blue Eye Makeup is a Major Trend RN!

Blue lids are making a comeback this summer, and here’s how you can wear it.


A lot of people refer to the ’90s as the golden era of beauty inspiration, but we have got to give the early 2000s its due. Aside from frosted lipstick disasters and some unusual denim incarnations, the decade blessed us with the blue eyeshadow. There’s no denying that blue eyes can be extraordinarily beautiful, especially when paired with flattering makeup. Whether light and icy or deep and dramatic, blue eye makeup has the power to sparkle, shine and pop with a good swipe of shadow. While in their hay days, our favourite pop stars Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears wore them thick and frosty, recently, celebs have been bringing back the blue shadow and liner — only this time, in deeper, more modern shades of ultramarine, teal, and navy in a variety of shapes and finishes.

 Check out the coolest iterations of the trend, and how to pull them off yourself, right here…

 Intensely Pigmented Lids

Take cues from Esha Gupta's makeup artist Savleen Manchanda, who swiped on an electric teal eyeshadow for a pop of drama on her top and bottom lashes. If you think this is a bit too OTT for you, downplay it with a more muted colour for a daytime look.

Want to know how to transform your day-to-night look without much effort?  We love Sophie Turner's cobalt blue eyes. Draw on a thin line to add some color to your cocktail ensemble, or try applying sharp wings to your lids for added dimension on a night out.

Retro Revival

Lily Collins embodied the biggest makeup trend of the '60s—a dramatic cat eye and made it millennial with light "ice-princess" blue painted across her lid. This soft pastel shade can your eyes look bigger and brighter if you're surviving with less than optimal shut-eye.

Lash Paradise

Bollywood actress Disha Patani sported a deep blue reverse cat-eye in a campaign for a recent collaboration with makeup brand M.A.C Cosmetics. Pair this look with an ethnic ensemble for a festive outing and you will be sure to raise a few eyebrows (in a good way!)

Glitter Party

At a recent outing at the Festival de Cannes, Bollywood's reigning queen wore a beautiful sparkly midnight blue eyeshadow with a pristine white dress. Blending is the key to this diaphanous look -- try a navy blue with silver specks of glitter and brush the shadow upward and out until it fades seamlessly onto your skin, keeping the true pigment closer to the lash line.
