One of the biggest beauty callouts from New York Fashion Week was undoubtedly blue eyes. From shadow to liner, the colour was everywhere. Our favourite to wear IRL has to be the Nars Solomon Islands Eye Paint ($25) used at the Phillip Lim show. It feels like the perfect edgy entry point to blue hues without risking looking straight-up ’80s, especially if we plan to take this trend into the winter months. Keep scrolling for five mesmerising photos that make us want to give blue eye makeup a chance.
Nars shared a bevy of behind-the-scenes photos from the 3.1 Phillip Lim show on its Facebook page. The dreamy images are our biggest push to try blue.
Model Emily Ratajkowski posted this #bts photo from the Marc Jacobs show. Seriously, she makes anything look good.
Monique Lhuillier opted for a thicker line and a brighter blue to exaggerate an almond-shaped eye. Mint green, too, but that feels a bit harder to pull off.
Crazy talented makeup artist Pat McGrath posted a photo of Kendall Jenner backstage from at the DVF show. Shocker... Kendall looks breathtaking.
Designer Jenny Packham shared a picture of her models lining up (and one falling asleep?) wearing a turquoise blue cat eye on their top lids. The look is bold and incredible, but the photo is still kind of hilarious.
What are your thoughts on trying blue eye makeup off the runway? A little bit punk or far too much like a princess? Sound off below!
