Blue is the colour of the moment; it’s everywhere. All shades in all styles, blue has been trending as the it colour on the eyes. A daunting choice, one might think. But with the right hue, blue might just be your new best friend.

Flattering on almost anyone, selecting your shade of blue will be the best thing you ever do. Take a step away from your usual smokey eye or bold black liner and swipe a turquoise mascara across your lashes or a cobalt liner along your lid.

So, how will you do blue? Take a cue from these seven celebs to get you feeling the blues.

Go hard or go home is clearly the inspiration behind this CFDA look by Hung Vanngo. Comparable with the stunning colours and texture of a peacocks wing. Achieve this look with the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Out of the Blue and the Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette in Smartorial.

Who doesn’t love some glitz with their glam? This sparking take on the blue trend gives it a slightly lighter, more playful feel. Start with a paler, glittery blue in the corners of your eye and select a slightly darker shade as you move into the lid.

Not your average smokey eye, this look is a more wearable way to do blue. Work some of Charlotte Tilbury’s Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Eyeshadow in Cleopatra into your usual smokey eye for a subtle pop of colour. Take this look from day to night by topping up on product as you’re running out the door.

Not a fan of a blue shadow? Go for a liner instead. Or in makeup artist Hung Vanngo’s case, use three. Combine the Marc Jacobs Beauty Gel Eye Crayon in Whirl(pool), Over(night) and Sunset for a liner look with more depth and dimension.

Beau Nelson’s approach to the blue trend has Stewart’s eyes swimming in a glistening sea of aqua and navy blue. High-shine and well-defined, this is the ultimate look for a girl’s night out, or an evening in Cannes in Stewart’s case.

Opt for a firework effect, as makeup artist Pati Dubroff puts it, by matching complimentary shades within the blue spectrum. Start with a bright teal and blend with a soft indigo as you move into the middle of your lid. Finish with a cobalt mascara for extra effect.

If you just can’t commit to colour on the lid, take a few swipes to your lashes with a deep, dark navy. From a distance, gorgeous long lashes, but on approach will be a stunning bold blue. To make like Margot, use the Chanel Le Volume De Chanel Mascara in Blue Night.
