Blue eye make-up was very big on the catwalks for Spring/Summer 2014 and it isn’t always easy to wear. It’s easy to incorporate a blue into your regular make-up look without looking like you’ve stepped out of a time machine from the 80s.

The sun is out (kind of) and it’s time to put those spring trends to the test! It seems that orange comes around every season and it’s probably because it’s such a wearable and flattering shade for all skin tones. Spring/Summer is generally when our make-up becomes fresher and more colourful and the easiest way to do this is to go for an orange lip like beauties Kate Bosworth, Nicole Richie and Jennifer Hudson.
I’m all for a minimum effort, high impact make-up look. There, I’ve said it, I’m lazy when it comes to my own make-up. I like to be quick, I hate doing touch-ups but I want it to look flawless. I don’t think you can go wrong with a bronzed face, lined eye and red lipped look, as Demi, Rihanna and Sienna demonstrate.
It’s the months of the year where you get mildew on the soul and unless you’re in LA right now we can bet you’re feeling the big blue chill. In homage to waiting out these wintery days we’ve got together our favourite blue beauty picks. From the Nars Matte Eyeshadow to the classic blue mascara (it doesn’t just have to be worn by your mum in the 80s or Carrie in Sex and the City) you won’t want to beat these blues but embrace them!
