Many designers showcased their version of a blue eye. For Diane Von Furstenberg’s Spring 2016 runway collection makeup artist, Pat McGrath created a “butterfly inspired” look. The soft blue smokey eye captivated the hearts of the audience. For a daytime look, pairing your electric-blue shadow with a soft complimentary hue will make this look effortless to wear.
Since you’ll be rocking a blue statement eye, much isn’t needed in order to complete this look. Starting off with Nars’ Velvet Matte Skin Tint will ensure that your face has a smooth, even and oil free palette. Adding Kat Von D’s Metal Crush Eyeshadow for the top lid and combining Clinique’s Chubby Stick Shadow Tint in green is a perfect combination to make certain that your eyes pop, but aren’t a distraction. Laura Mercier’s Stick Face Color is great because of its multifunction use. Although its mainly used for cheeks, you can dab a swipe on your eyelids and lips for a boost in color. Clinique’s Lash Power Long Wearing Mascara has got to be one of the best mascaras out there. Your lashes will end up looking as if they are 5 times its original length. I’m all for creating a strong, but natural looking brow and Lancome’s Brow Groomer is the perfect tool for it. There is no need to line your brows; the more natural the brow the better. Lastly, for a little shimmer apply a shimmering lipstick such as Lips by TopShop in Mercurial.
