World Oceans Day is here to remind you to keep the lungs of our planet—our oceans—clean and free of plastic pollution. Let’s also pledge to not let the impact of human doings put the marine environment under danger. While we all need to do our bit for the sustainable management of the world’s oceans, let’s take this day to celebrate the beauty of the ocean.
Taking inspiration from the many shades of blue that the ocean blesses us with, we’ve curated a bunch of some of the best blue eye makeup looks that are sure to give you all kinds of ocean feels. Take a look!
Powder blue shadow
While Alia Bhatt seldom experiments with bold makeup colours, she definitely gives makeup goals to those who love keeping it minimal yet striking. Ditching soft brown lids, Alia sports powder blue on her eyes with a nude lipstick and dewy makeup finishing the look for her. The next time you decide to pick a black outfit, reach for a powder blue shadow to add some oomph to your eye makeup.
Ink blue wings
A swipe of thick, bold winged eyeliner in an ink blue shade can do wonders to take your beauty quotient a few notches higher instantly. Ditch the usual black and experiment with an ink blue eyeliner, to add the some drama to your eye makeup. We suggest you get your hands on the waterproof Lakmé Kareena Kapoor Khan Absolute Eye Definer, Cobalt to recreate Olivia Wilde’s bold blue cat eyes.
Sparkly blue inner corner
Take eye makeup cues from Sonakshi Sinha and add some sparkle to your lids—apt for a date night or a cocktail party. Instead of going blue all over your lids (if that makes it OTT), you could simply highlight the inner corner of your eyes by taking some blue shimmer on your fingers and dabbing it lightly on the inner corner. Let the rest of your lids have translucent shimmer. This little twist can make all the difference in helping you make a drop-dead statement.
Blue all over
Go all out with blue eye makeup by covering both your lower lids as well as upper lids with a creamy blue eye shadow. Blend your blue winged eyeliner to give it a smokey effect and add the same colour on your lower lids. You can mix and match colours from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette - Royal Persia to recreate Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s all-blue eye makeup look.
The Ombré effect
Perfect for an evening look, this Ombré blue eye makeup is definitely going to be one helluva show-stealer! Start with a darker shadow on the outer corner and go lighter as you move towards the inner corner. Highlight your brow bone with a dark brown eyeshadow, add a swipe of black eyeliner and a few coats of mascara to finish this look.
