Every time I wore blue makeup, I looked somewhat peculiar. I tried to wear different shades of blue and used different formulas, but never ended up liking the results.
I soon found out there are ways to wear blue makeup without looking like a clown or an ’80s music video star.
It’s about the shade and how much of it you have where in comparison to the rest of your makeup.
Here are eight blue makeup products to try.
1. Midnight Blue Eyeliner
If you’re used to black eyeliner, start slow and try a dark blue eyeliner ($26, Sephora), like this one from Bobbi Brown. It’ll be a subtle change, but the color is a little less harsh than a jet black, so you can use it for a softer look.
2. Navy Blue/Baby Blue
Kajal pencils ($22, Sephora) are oh, so creamy! This one from The Estee Edit is great because it’s got two colors for you to choose from. Go with the good ol’ navy blue, or try something a little brighter with the baby blue. Since the pencil is so creamy, a little glides a long way.
3. Bright clay pot liner
How do you feel about electric blue? Try this Tarte bright blue eyeliner ($21, Sephora) for a waterproof formula that’ll stay on your lids all day. Wow them with a thick, bold cat eye. Or draw the skinniest line on your lid for a subtle pop.
4. Tiffany blue
If you’re a fan of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, this liquid lipstick ($18, Jeffree Star Cosmetics) is a show stopper for sure! It may not be very Audrey Hepburn, but it is pretty fab.
5. Glitter liner
Because you deserve to sparkle, duh. Urban Decay light blue glitter eyeliner ($20, Sephora).
6. Inner Rim Gel Eyeliner
Have you ever lined your waterline before? If you haven’t, now’s the time to try! Go with this cute shade of blue. The formula was made for the waterline ($8, Sephora), so it won’t budge. You can also use it on your lids, because who doesn’t love liner that doesn’t budge? Putting a pop of color on your waterline is a simple way to add some color to your eye makeup.
7. Cream Lipstick
Dark blue lips? Yes, please! Wear this NYX lippie ($7, Ulta) with light neutrals for a look that’s all about the lips.
Whether you put Glitters ($15, Sephora) on your eye lids or your other body parts, you’ll surely have fun with this sparkly blue glitter.
