Dua Lipa Blue Eyeshadow

One of the most popular ways to apply blue eyeshadow is in a bold halo effect, like Dua Lipa’s eye makeup above. “I love blending the eyeshadow from the lash line up towards the eyebrow,” says celebrity makeup artist Gilbert Soliz. “This opens up the eye and gives it a fresh take on a smoky eye.” For best results, he says to use a flat brush to pat and blend the blue eyeshadow of your choice onto your lids, then use a softer fluffy brush to diffuse the color up and out. Then, to complete the halo effect, use a dense, short-bristled eyeshadow brush to apply the pigment to the lower lash line.

Even Beyoncé has been beholden to the blue eyeshadow trend. At the 2006 “Dreamgirls” Los Angeles premiere, the “Formation” singer showed up with shimmering aqua lids to match her gown. “There’s something magical about a monochromatic color story,” Baker says.

While you might not have any red-carpet events coming up, Baker says that embracing the blue eyeshadow trend can be as simple as wearing a soft swipe of pastel blue shadow with a head-to-toe denim ensemble. “It will always feel fun and playful and can lean early ‘00s or made really fresh and modern depending on your mood,” she explains.

Taylor Swift might be best known for her statement red lip but she’s tried blue shadow a time or two, too. Once again, Baker says it’s all about that perfect powder baby blue hue. She’s such a fan of the hue, in fact, that she created her own.
