The blue mascara trend is back this season ladies and whether that fills you with joy (loud lash fans), or dread (noir obsessives), it’s happening.
Push images of cobalt mascara paired with thick pencil eyeliner a la the 90s to the very backs of your annoyingly long memories and get ready to embrace blue with open arms.
From Jason Wu to House of Holland, the blue mascara trend was walked down runways all over the world, so it’s already fash-pack approved. Perrie Edwards and Priyanka Chopra have been rocking it and it’s invading our Insta-feeds and even left Pinterest coated with a heavy blue tinge – there’s been a 243% increase in its searches lately! Heavy-duty trending.
Now that you understand it really is a thing, here’s some inspiration on how to intro it to your face.
Hayley Sparkes, MUA from NEW make-up app Wow How says:
“Do not wear an eye shadow colour to match your mascara, instead look for complimentary colours.”
“Keep your eye liner subtle so it doesn’t detract from the statement you are making with your lashes.”
“The whole point of the blue mascara trend is the colour so don’t be afraid to layer it on.”
“However if you are looking for something more subtle, try applying a little coloured mascara just to the tips of your lashes.”
“When wearing coloured mascara, let your eyes do all the talking and keep the rest of your make-up quite minimal.”
