Indigo and blue make-up trends


Defining feature
Majestic and bold indigo-blue eyeshadow which captures the eyes.
Get the look
The colours of this make-up trend are subtly contrasted: deep blue on the eyes and nails, with matte red on the lips. Blue eyeshadow is set to be the new black. Its attraction? It brings out the white of the eye and reduces redness. Day or night, this eye make-up harmonizes with a light complexion.
Technique
For a natural look, apply a pale eyeshadow all over the eyelid, then outline the lash line with blue eyeliner. Next, apply a light dusting of indigo shadow, smoothing it out towards the brow bone. Sweep a fine line of gold shimmer to the inner sockets and lower lash for added contrast. Finish with several coats of mascara. Either leave lips natural or apply matte red lipstick for a more sophisticated look.
We think...
Reigning blue eyeshadow delivers light and intensity to the eyes. Wear it as a halo around the eye, day or night, with jeans and ballerina pumps. Reserved for assertive, feminine women!
