Move over coral lipstick, the baby blue eye is here! Blue eyeshadow and eyeliner is set to be the next big thing for Spring 2013. For a long time we never thought blue eyeshadow would be able to redeem itself after the 80’s, but thanks to NYFW 2013, the blue eye has made a strong comeback in a fresh, soft and modern way and soon we will be loving it too, with on-trend products landing now at Mecca Cosmetica.


The blue eye was seen in all shapes and forms at the likes of Michael Kors, Rebeca Minkoff, Kate Spade, Joy Cioci and Honour. Clearly it has made an impact overseas, and soon will be making a statement on our shores too, so it is imperative that you know exactly how to work it before the warmer weather hits.



The difference with this season’s blue eyeshadow look is that it is sleek and modern without being over-the-top. The pastel hues are cute and are kept bright and fresh. For those who opt for a more midnight blue shade, keep shadow limited to the lid and the socket to avoid an 80s Barbie vibe. Liquid eyeliner is the best way to go for those who want to keep it subtle. Line with black, then carefully use Stila’s Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in turquoise or baby blue above the black line as seen on the runway at Michael Kors and Rebecca Minkoff.


Those with blue eyes should play with brights, those with green or hazel eyes should try turquoise and peacock hues, and for brown eyed gals, explore deep navy shades.
