Fads come and go but, while the mania for pet rock collecting and disco dancing may have waned, one ’70s trend has made a triumphant return: retro blue shadow.
Like the models at Ginger & Smart’s Resort ’17 show, why not take neon blue for a test drive? Or try an electric powder blue that evokes memories of ABBA’s Agnetha?No matter your tone of choice, it’s time to give a nod to nostalgia, and let the likes of Lily-Rose Depp, Elle Fanning and Diane Kruger lead the way.
[Top to bottom] YSL Full Metal Shadow. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Waterproof Liner. Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes. Napoleon Perdis Total Bae Own It! Mascara. Sisley Phyto-Ombre Eclat Long Lasting Eye Shadow.
Think blue won’t suit you? Think again! There’s a shade for everyone. If your eyes are: • Blue or grey use ashy tones or royal blue • Green or hazel use soft teal or rich petrol • Brown or black use indigo with traces of purple. Still not sure? Try a coat of electric blue mascara or a hint of navy liner.
