The shade blue has a bit of a fairytale ­mystery about it. It glams up your eyes in a jiffy and makes you a head-turner. The trend was big in the 80s and 90s, and has made a grand ­comeback this year. We saw blue lids pop up on the global runways this ­season. There were blue smokey eyes, electric blue liners and even pop blue ­mascaras. It’s been a ­favourite of celebrity divas too, who like a bit of edge in their look. If you are not a chicken-hearted beauty, add some instant glam to your look with the shade.

Get inspired by these blue-eyed celebs!


No one does blue like Lupita Nyong’o. The actor is a pro when it comes to wearing blue eye makeup. Add drama to your eyes with ­glittery blue eye-shadow, applied above black eyeliner eye.
Want to keep it understated? Go for a flash of electric blue on the lower lash line, like Keshiya Cole. Let it be the highlight of your look. Do not clash it with any other pop colour. Stick to nude lips and a touch of blush to sculpt your cheeks.
Go for fairytale glam with shiny blue eyelids like Beyonce. Keep rest of the makeup subtle.

Do the blue: right here!


Some drama with blue:
Go for smokey blue eyes instead of black. Line your eyes with kohl for added impact. Finish off with ­mascara.
Pretty blue flutters:
You can make your eyes look pretty with some blue mascara. Apply it on both, the upper and lower ­lashes. Skip the liner.
Classic blue beauty:
Everyone’s doing ­classic black winged eyes? Try the blue ­version of the timeless style. Team it up with double coats of black mascara. Leave lips nude with just a touch of gloss.
