How To Wear Blue Makeup—As Inspired By Celebs

These are all so “blue-tiful”!

By Tisha Caedo

Blue is having a big moment—and it’s all thanks to the Pantone Color Institute’s declaration of the Classic Blue hue as the 2020 Color of the Year. Naturally, as beauty addicts, we’ve been itching to incorporate this timeless shade into our everyday looks.

The good news: A blue makeup statement is actually quite easy to pull off, even for newbies. Here are some celebrity looks that may help convince you to try something new and something blue!

1. Sleek eyeliner

Maymay Entrata‘s bright flick is perfect for those who are just starting to experiment with colors. It can pull together any MOTD while still defining your prettiest feature: your eyes!

2. Edgy Underliner

5. Gradient Gloss

If you want the boldness of a smoky eye but don’t want to fully commit to shading your entire lid, go for Taylor Hill‘s gradient, glossy blue look!
