From blue eyeshadow to blue mascara, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t totally in love with the classic blue makeup craze. Want to give it a try for yourself? Read on for four blue makeup products to add to your collection, along with a monochromatic blue eye makeup look you can try to put them to use!
4 CLASSIC BLUE MAKEUP PRODUCTS TO USE THIS YEAR
Ready to give the classic blue trend a go? Be sure to add the following four products to your makeup bag.
1. L’ORÉAL PARIS VOLUMINOUS MASCARA IN COBALT BLUE
First on our list? The L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Washable Bold Eye Mascara in Cobalt Blue. We can’t think of a better combo than a cult classic product in a classic blue hue. The volumizing mascara is uniquely formulated to resist clumping, keep lashes soft, and quickly build and thicken your lash look. What’s not to love? The formula also helps protect and condition your fringe.
Editor’s tip: Want to give your classic blue mascara a boost? Apply the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Primer prior to your mascara, which will help the blue shade really pop while building dramatic volume.
2. L’ORÉAL PARIS MATTE SIGNATURE LINER IN BLUE
You can also give the blue makeup trend a try with the help of the L’Oréal Paris Matte Signature Liquid Dip Eyeliner, Waterproof in Blue. This liquid eyeliner features a precision applicator with a shortened stem that allows you to get closer to the eye. Oh, and did we mention the formula is waterproof with a matte finish?
3. L’ORÉAL PARIS INFALLIBLE EYE SHADOW IN TIMELESS BLUE SPARK
Sucker for a new eye shadow? So are we! Consider picking up the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Timeless Blue Spark. This beautiful light blue shade has a shimmer finish that’s guaranteed to add life to your eye makeup look. The powder-meets-cream formula glides on effortlessly to enhance your eyes with pure, magnified pigment.
4. L’ORÉAL PARIS COLOUR RICHE EYESHADOW IN GRAND BLEU
Last but not least, we have the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Grand Bleu. This classic blue shadow has a soft, velvety texture with a shimmer finish. The deep, navy blue color can be used to add depth to any eye makeup look.
HOW TO CREATE A MONOCHROMATIC CLASSIC BLUE EYE MAKEUP LOOK
Now that you’re familiar with our four classic blue makeup products, it’s time to put them to use! Below, find a step-by-step tutorial on how to create a monochromatic blue eye makeup look.
STEP #1: PRIME YOUR EYES
As with any eye makeup look, you’ll want to start by applying an eye primer. Smooth one onto your lids to ensure your classic blue products stay put.
STEP #2: PAINT YOUR LIDS
Grab your blue eyeshadows—it’s time to get to work. Start by popping Timeless Spark onto your lids, making sure to pack on the color with a flat eyeshadow brush. Then use a tapered eyeshadow brush to place Grand Blue in your crease, focusing the color on the outer “V” of your eyes. Take a fluffy blending brush and move it back and forth in your crease, using the windshield wiper technique to blend your two blue shades together. Finish your eye shadow by taking a bit of Grand Blue on a small, flat eye shadow brush and dragging it along your lower lash line.
STEP #3: LINE YOUR EYES
Next, add a little more definition to your eye makeup look by using your blue liquid eyeliner to line your upper lash line, drawing a small wing at the end for extra drama.
STEP #4: COAT YOUR LASHES
To complete your monochromatic look, coat your lashes—remembering to apply lash primer first—in blue mascara. So pretty!
