Who would have thought that blue eyeshadow would become a thing again? We thought it had stayed in the ’90s!
But it’s happened; blue eyeshadow is everywhere and although we were a little ‘WTF‘ at first, we’ve really come around to the idea.
Fuelling our love? The Queen of The North Sophie Turner at the 2019 Met Gala (see more of our favourite looks from the 2019 Met Gala here!)
Sophie’s makeup artist used Pat McGrath Lapis Luxury to create the look. It’s stunning, but expensive and only available via the Selfridges website.
“Vega” in the Urban Decay Moondust Palette looks very similar to us and Rebekah O’ Leary confirmed that by recreating Sophie’s makeup look using the Urban Decay Palette and the Bperfect Stacey Marie Carnival Palette.
Because this is a really fun this is the perfect look to rock come festival season!
How To Make Blue Eyeshadow More Wearable
Like the idea of blue eyeshadow, but looking for something less dramatic? Try using blue eyeliner, like Pretty Little Liars Shay Mitchell.
Try Bourjois Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof Eye Liner Pencil in Blue Neon on your waterline and under it.
You also don’t need a ton of colours to create this, just one blue colour eyeshadow is enough.
Start off with an eyeshadow primer like Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion or a natural tone eyeshadow and then slowly build up the colour.
Keep the rest of your look simple like Sophie; natural brows and a nude lip. Or if you’re just doing a pop of colour with blue eyeliner take a leaf out of Shay’s book and pair it with a bold red lip. Missy loves Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Colour in Uncensored.
Top Tip: spray your eyeshadow brush with some setting spray to help intensify the colour.
