How To Wear Blue Eyeliner

Blue eyeliner was a big thing in the 80’s, but it’s made a comeback for summer 2017, adding a pop of colour to a natural makeup look. I decided to have a play around with some different looks, so here are three ways you can add a flash of blue to your look this summer.

I’ll start off by saying I’m using an MUA Intense Colour Eye Pencil in Royal Blue. It’s a very soft kohl, and by very soft I mean I snapped the tip off opening the pack, oops. Luckily, the lid comes with a built in sharpener for convenience as these pencils need to be sharpened a lot to get a clean line. I can’t complain though as it only cost me 90p.

Look 1: Lower Lash Flash

You can be pretty messy with this one so don’t worry about being too precise. I used small dash-like movements to apply the liner underneath my lower lashes, then smudged it out with a thick angled brush, taking it to the inner corner of my eye and extending it out into a messy, faded wing.

Look 2: Graphic Wing

Everyone loves a classic cat eye winged liner, so why not try it in blue? For a more precise line I applied double sided sticky tape where I wanted the wing and drew on a rough wing. I then used my thin, flat angled ecotools brush to create a precise line and sharpen the wing.

Look 3: Bold Lip

Who said eyeliner just has to be for your eyes? Keep your eyes nude for this look, I used a slight gold shimmer. Carefully line your lips with the pencil and fill them in for a look that makes a statement and is bound to make you stand out.

I didn’t think blue would suit me very well with me having blue eyes, but I’m actually really happy with how these looks turned out. I think they look great with a denim jacket. I’m definitely going to be playing around with this eyeliner more over the summer.

  2. I love all of these looks, blue does look good with blue eyes! I have always been worried about trying blue, because of my eyes. I love how subtle the first one is, just a little under the eyes is great!💙

  3. The colour suits you so much, you look amazing! 😍 I wish I was confident enough to be more daring with my makeup, but I always get self conscious about it all! 💜
