How to: Carry off Blue Mascara
Tue, 3 July 2012 10:03AM
I have a blue mascara, and I really love it, but I don’t know what shades of eyeliner and eyeshadow to wear with it. Could you give me some suggestions?
We’re really into blue mascara right now, too!
As you can (kind of) see, there’s nothing else on the eyes (except, probably, loads of concealer; blue shades can, after all, bring out any blue shadowy discolouration around the eyes). That’s not necessarily a look that a non-supermodel can easily carry off. And that’s where eyeliner and shadow comes in – and your question. You’re right to ask. It’s a tricky one, after all. Dark eye makeup would overshadow blue lashes, while matching liner or shadow would look too, uh, matchy-matchy. Our advice: stick to the neutral-eye idea seen at Stella, but add a little something-extra by using a shimmery- or glimmery-textured neutral. Our can’t-go-past buy, when it comes to glitzy nudes, is Stila Kitten, $38, Mecca Cosmetica.
By the way, although you already have your favourite blue lash colour, we have to throw our two tops into the ring: ck One Mascara in Electrify, $30, from Myer, and YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils in Blue, $52, from department stores.
