If you’re feeling the blues this season, we can hardly blame you. From aquatic nail polish to turquoise streaked hair, the look of blue shades has been dominating the beauty scene for quite some time. As we prepare for fall beauty, denim eyeliner is set to make a splash in a major way. Most recently, the look of fierce, azure-lined eyes was spotted on the beautiful Joan Smalls. With her tanned complexion, the 29-year-old Puerto Rican model seizes attention as she sports this new makeup look.
Not just limited to catwalks, blue eyeliner is also a reigning social media trend. Whether worn as graphic liner over bare lids or as part of a strikingly colourful eye look, there are many ways to wear the denim eyes trend. If this fad’s moniker needed any explanation, it all comes back to the vivid blue tone, which is inspired by a classic pair of jeans. For those who have dark brown eyes, there’s nothing better than a pop of blue to allow your peepers to stand out.
If you’re going to rock denim eyeliner, it’s probably best to stick to nude liquid lipstick and apricot blush. Darker, ruddy shades will no doubt clash against your blue-painted lids, and look garish as a result. Meanwhile, soft rosy blush and shades of light pink lipstick are the way to go. If you want to experiment with eyeshadow, try coral or peach shades, lightly smudged to create a delicate look. For more inspiration, take a look the following looks from Instagram:
