True blue: keep it cool for azure eyes with a modern look, says Funmi Fetto

Blue eye makeup will take you right back to the 80s, but give it a contemporary twist

Blue eyeshadow conjures the garish 80s. But context is king. This blue eye is deliciously contemporary and that’s down to everything else you see going on. The skin is not overdone – just a teeny bit of base. Cheeks are also wonderfully subtle – a velvety (not greasy) cream blush is just the ticket. Lips, again, keep minimal, but slightly glossy – it contrasts nicely against the skin. And after you apply blue shadow, add a slick line of black ink. That’s the real secret to keeping it modern.
