Well, it looks like fashion designers are in a true blue mood for 2016. And we’re pretty sure this blue make-up trend is bound to last. Here’s why.
Anything Blue review – Blue Makeup trends 2016: the Beauty & the Beasty Blues #BlueEyeMakeup
Vogue journalists did notice a blue trend in beauty and make up: Lisa Nivens from Vogue UK highlights how blue – electric, turquoise, sapphire – was on every catwalkers’ eyes during the last Fashion weeks in New York and London (read her article ‘Blue-eyed girl’ below). French Vogue journalist Christelle Baillet reports the standout electric liners spotted on the 2016 Hugo Boss runways – another proof that a flash of blue benefits every skin colors and hair types (read our article about blue pendant earings by Alexandra Alberta).
Tempted? For those ready to try a total blue look today, the new CHANEL collection ‘Blue Rhythm’ and its navy blue eye are for you; Harpers Bazaar‘s selection of the best blue eyeshadows will help you coat your lids in cobalt, cerulean or navy. Scroll down for more info and a blue make-up tutorial.
‘Do you remember the trend for blue eye make-up that emerged during the spring/summer 2014 shows? Well, it’s back. This London Fashion Week, make-up artists have been calling upon a palette of sky, aquamarine, peacock and electric blue for the spring/summer 2016 season, and it’s just too bold to ignore.
There were hints in New York – under-the-sea turquoise at Diane von Furstenberg, smudgy sapphire at Marc Jacobs – but in London, blue really took hold. At Jonathan Saunders we watched Lucia Pieroni push MAC Chromaline and Chromagraphic Pencil in Marine Ultra right into the lash line and all around the eyes for an electric-blue wraparound effect, picking up on the colour in one particular fabric used in the collection – featured in looks 32, 33 and 37. Then at Mary Katrantzou later that day, Pieroni created the clumpy lashes in either a burgundy, turquoise or sapphire hue – the latter created with the very same shade used at Saunders.
On Monday, at Roksanda, Lucia Pica used a wash of sheer sea-blue around the eyes to pick up on the soft tones in the collection, whilst Isamaya Ffrench applied blue mascara to models’ lashes at Ashley Williams on Tuesday. Pair the look with perfected skin and nude lips – it’s a modern take on Nineties style that we can’t help but fall for.
Will it continue in Milan and Paris? Only time will tell. But for now, we’re in a blue mood.‘
Electric Blue Liner at Boss Spring/Summer 2016
‘Pat McGrath gave models an electric look on the Boss runway, as a flick of bright blue saw eyes stand out against the pure, natural tones in the collection. To draw even more attention to the eyes, Guido Palou amped up the models’ hair shine before styling it in a sleek low ponytail, tied with a lock of hair.’
