19 Approaches To Blue Makeup That Won't Make You Look Like A Middle Schooler
Blue Mascara
A subtle way you can add blue to your makeup look is by picking a bright blue mascara, which looks good alone or with a classic brown or black daytime smoky eye. If it’s too much blue for you, you can apply the blue mascara to only the outer third of your lashes.
Inner Corner
An easy way to play around with blue eyeshadow is to apply it to your inner corners instead of a highlight shade. Make sure you use a dense brush and don't blend the edges too much because you can end up making yourself look bruised instead.
Blue Eyeliner
A black winged eyeliner can often look too harsh and dramatic, but swapping it for a blue one will make it less contrasting and still keep the boldness of the look. If you only have blue eyeshadow, you can use it as an eyeliner by using a skinny makeup brush.
There are a handful of eyeshadow colors you should use to get a '60s-style look, and blue is one of them. Use a soft baby blue all over your lid, and then add a sharp black outline to your eye to create a funky '60s-inspired eye look.
Blue Waterline
If you have blue eyes, try an icy blue liner on your waterline with any makeup look you’re going for. It will have a similar effect as a white liner and open up your eyes and make them look brighter, while also bringing out the blue in your eyes, making them pop.
