With “melancholy with a touch of techno” serving as inspiration behind the Giles A/W 2014 Collection, makeup artist Lucia Pieroni working for MAC Cosmetics created a beautiful street punk makeup look with smoky lids and a pop of blue on the lower eye.
At Creatures of the Wind A/W 2014, the look revolved around a pop of blue liner on the lower lashline and nude marble nails.
At Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2014, models donned a bright eye paired with a dyed blonde choppy bob.
First seen at Anna Sui A/W 2012 and now again at Meadham Kirchhoff S/S 2013, adding just a dot (or a blob) of blue underneath the eye is such a cool yet simple way to make your peepers pop. Check out my take on the look and tips on how to nail it after the jump!

Tips On Rocking The Look
When choosing a blue to use, the brighter the better. After all, this look is all about fun. A few good choices are turquoise (as seen on my look above), electric blue, cobalt blue, royal blue and cornflower blue. And remember, with the eyes stealing the show, always keep the skin dewy and fresh and finish with just a tad of color on the cheeks and lips.

or a smoldering smoky eye
Wearing blue from head to toe can be tricky to pull off but Karl Lagerfeld but Chanel Creative Director of Makeup Peter Philips proved it otherwise at the Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2012 show by giving models a strong, slightly rock ‘n roll eye.
