How To: Electric Blue Eye Makeup

Blue eye shadow you say? Believe it or not, blue is a big player when it comes to the make-up palette for S/S15. Eyelids were decorated with everything from powder blues to electric azures at this season’s fashion shows.

So how do you try it without appearing to have taken on the role of Pat Butcher in Eastenders (no offence Pat!)? I asked make-up artist Francesca Neill to give me a tutorial in how to make summer’s blue eye trend work for real-life. You’ll find Me Me Me’s Enchanted Eyes Eye Wand in your May GLOSSYBOX and you can either experiment with the electric shade, or try the navy, which looks great with brown or green eyes. The crayon-shaped nib allows for it to be quickly applied all over the lid or lined along lashes for a more subtle accent – you choose.                                            electric blue eye makeup 

As Beauty Director I am always experimenting, but it was a surprise just how much I liked the punk lash/blue eyelid look, despite it being well outside my comfort zone. Give it a go and let us know what you think in the comments below.
