Spring Make-up Trend | Shades of Blue

   I’m not usually one to follow makeup trends. However the various blue makeup looks that popped up all over the spring/summer 2016 catwalks are a trend I will be taking inspiration from. 

My favourite looks came from Jonathon Saunders, it had the right balance of natural make-up offset with heavy blue liner.  It’s a look that is wearable and doesn’t require too many makeup application skills other than a steady hand.

Of course this called for a rifle through my stash before I went dashing of to Boots to buy a blue eyeliner. Good thing as I already have some options perfect for this look. 

See I’m growing as a person, the shopaholic in me is subsiding.

 

As you can see when swatched They are all vivid blues of various tones. 

 1. No7 Metalic Eyes Pencil – 03 Blue £7.50

2. Rimmel Eyeshadow Stick – Electric Sapphire £4.49 (note the shade names are wrong on boots.com)

3. Kiko Cosmetics Long lasting Stick – 31 Iris Blue £6.90

When dried these are all pretty excellent quality and don’t budge. 

 

I am wearing the Kiko long lasting stick in the picture below. I love it as it brings out the blue in my eyes. 

 

Will you be wearing some blue this spring?
