6 Ways to Wear Blue Makeup & Look Drop Dead Gorgeous (PHOTOS)

by Nicole Fabian-Weber

selena gomezIn case you haven't heard, blue makeup is all the rage these days. Cool blues, dark blues, shimmery blues. It's hot! Or cool! I don't know! But I do know you should invest in some blue makeup this summer, because there's a shade for everyone and it can be an incredibly beautiful, uniquely fun look.

Check out these 6 gorgeous blue makeup items and tips on how to wear them. Go on. Be daring.

Sephora Flashy Liner in Vivid Turquoise

Turquoise liner can be gorgeous, but it looks best with a tanned complexion. Throw on some creamy bronzer, a light gloss, and smudge that blue in. You'll look refreshed and ready for a night out.

NARS Duo Cream Eyeshadow in Burn It Blue

If there ever was a brand that can do no wrong when it comes to cream eyeshadows, it's NARS. This gorgeous cream shadow duo is perfect for when you're looking for a bolder look. It will look softer, dewier, and less 80s than the regular shadows. But again, try to match the rest of your makeup to your eyes -- IE, go lush and dewy all over, as opposed to matte.

Line Only the Top Lid With Blue Liner

When you're opting for blue eye liner, subtlety is your friend. Don't go crazy like you would with a black or brown liner. A simple smudge on the upper lid will suffice just fine.

Try Blue Mascara

Okay, so it's a little out there, but hey, so is blue makeup in general. No need to go crazy bright blue, like the mascara shown, but a mascara with a blue tint can actually be really pretty -- and kind of subtle.

Mix Blue With Black

If you want to ease yourself into the blue trend, try mixing your blue with black. It won't be so in-your-face, and hey, you're experimenting!

If All Else Fails, Go Navy

If you're dying to get out of a makeup rut, but feel like blue ... anything is just to much for you, buy a navy shadow or pencil that errs more on the side of gray. It may just be your gateway drug to electric blue!

    I  love anything by COVERGIRL. I bought  COVERGIRL  blue eyeshadow and  i love it. My boyfriend loves blue so he loves it when i wear it . I  do use L.A.COLORS blue eyeliner pencil and nail polish. Whenever iwear pink,blue,green,black,brown and grey outfits i wear it. I'm still trying to figure out how to wear more than one color eyeshadow. I'm still learning how to put on eyeshadow and apply  the eyeliner.

I'm Asian so I'm not sure blue works as well on our skin colour. I do like the idea of blue though so might try a subtle blue tinted mascara.

No, no shade of blue makeup looks good on me. Been there, tried that, lol.
I did have some turquoise hair for a bit, though. :)

I have some blue eye shadows that I really like. I actually prefer bright blue to navy blue.
