The passion for electric blue goes a long way back: Egyptians used to produce the pigment from precious stones, such as lapis lazuli, and women used to wear it a sort of handmade eye shadow on their eyelids.
On catwalks, it was already there as a beauty trend for a few seasons, but only now has it made the real jump from the runway to our vanities, becoming a new, real trend. It comes in so many different shades, and there is really no preferable season to use it, it is truly a summer and a winter must.
Whether matte or glossy, for smokey eyes or with a minimalist makeup, this eye shadow can lend a real unique, original touch to your look. It’s a very attention-grabbing nuance, so make sure you wear it with a neutral lipstick or a nude gloss, as seen on Dior’s campaign with Bella Hadid. Whichever finish you choose for your eye shadow, blue is a color that must be in your makeup bag.
With so much action happening on the catwalks these days (it’s the final leg of the fashion month) you probably missed other big news from your favorite fashion brands. Dior Makeup has a new celebrity face, Dolce & Gabbana just got a hot actor to front its latest fragrance and there’s so many more celebrities with brand-new gigs.
Bella Hadid for Dior Makeup
Bella has had an impressive fashion month streak, but in between all the shows, she managed to reach another very impressive milestone — becoming the new face of Dior Makeup. She joins the brand’s other celeb faces, Natalie Portman and Jennifer Lawrence, to model the Diorshow pump and volume mascara (which hits stores in April). And trust us, thanks to the innovative application of the new formula, you’re going to want to snatch one up as soon as it launches.
