Fall 2010 Runways Ruled By Blue Smoky Eyes
Smoky eyes may never go out of style, but it seems that every season, designers put a fresh spin on the notoriously sultry look. According to StyleList.com, the Fall 2010 runways were filled with models rocking smoky blue eye makeup.
“A blue smoky eye is an unexpected and stylish variation on the traditional smoky eye, making it a little bit more fun,” makeup guru Bobbi Brown told the news source.
However, when selecting the pigments, remember to think navy, not cornflower. “Look for shades of blue that incorporate black and brown tones which will give them the richness of denim and keep the colors modern,” Brown added.
To recreate this look, makeup artist Emily Kate Warren told the news source that women should use two products – a blue cream eyeshadow and a gold highlighter.
Blend the blue pigment along the upper lash line and the crease, making a sideways V-shape toward the outer corner of your eye. Next, apply the gold powder from the inner corner of your eye to the inside of the V-shape, and use a clean brush to blend the two hues together.
Finally, Brown reminds women rocking this bold eye to keep the rest of their makeup minimal – a touch of blush, sheer lip balm and mascara.
