Ever since wearing face masks became the new normal, beauty enthusiasts started focusing on upping their eye makeup game. From cut crease to floating liners, the eyes are where you can get super creative and show off your skills. Especially when working with colour, the eyes are where you can play with pigment and not go wrong. And given that we are in the midst of the beautiful monsoon season, playing with colour is a given!
One hue, in particular, is oh-so-cool for the rainy season is blue. Here are some chic ways to wear blue eye makeup this monsoon!

01. Dazzling shimmer
Why play around with one shade when you can play around with two (or twenty). Take cues from Kristen Stewart and apply a glittery light blue hue to your inner corners and apply a dark blue colour on the outer ‘V’ and the outer edge of the lower lash line. Line your eyes with kohl for a punk chic vibe. Keep the rest of your makeup minimal to let your eyes do all the talking.

02. Smokey marina
Love the good ‘ol classic smokey eye? Time for an update. Use a light blue shimmer and dab it on the outer ‘V’ of your eyes for a look that will pair well with most outfits.

03. Contrast colour
Riverdale’s resident boss babe, Camila Mendes wore this quirky look for the 2019 MET Gala and we have been obsessed with it ever since! Add a pop of contrast colour like bright yellow or neon orange to your blue liner for a fashion-forward yet youthful look.

04. Sharp details
Create a sharp wing using a glossy blue eyeliner. Extend the wing to the inner corners of your eyes. Lightly line your lower lash line using the same shade. Keep the rest of the eye makeup subtle with a blush shadow, or any shade that brings out the warmth of your natural skin tone.

05. Aqua lids
Mix and match glittery and matte blue shadows to create this stunning eye look! Adding bright pigments to the centre of your eyelids will make your peepers appear bigger and brighter!
