Who knew that blue would once again make it onto eyelids for spring? But can you rock this runway trend on the streets?
Spring is coming: Cue the pop of color! This season, it’s electric—blue, that is. Amidst the hubbub of last year’s September shows, the hue (and all its variants) reigned supreme, from pastel eye masks at Chanel to smoky shadows at DVF.
Marc Jacobs kept it “downtown” in a look created by NARS, with models sporting spots of deep turquoise on the eye’s inner corners. “It’s sophisticated, but she’s living her life, so it’s very real at the same time,” explains Founder and Creative Director François Nars. To re-create, use the label’s Dark Angel Velvet Shadow Stick ($29) all over the eyelid, Solomon Islands Eye Paint ($25) smudged on the inner corners, then Cressida Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow ($29).
At the Missoni show, makeup artist Lucia Pieroni also went for a cooler vibe with bright swaths of cyan, but suggests keeping the rest of the face clean off the catwalk. To re-create the look, try lining both lashes then smudging with Chanel’s Illusion D’Ombre in Ocean Light ($36).NARS, Saks Fifth Avenue, Prudential Center, 617-937-5262.
