Slowly yet surely, summer is coming to end. I will start covering some of the hottest makeup looks from the A/W 2013 runway that you MUST try, followed by my very own version of it with tips on nailing the look. And first, we have a vibrant indigo smoky cat eye paired with clean skin and muted lip as seen at Jason Wu A/W 2013. Read on to see how makeup artist Diane Kendal created the look!
Blue eyeshadow is all the rage this spring/summer and at the Chanel Resort 2014 show in Singapore, Peter Philips showed us a beautiful graphic eye with black and an electric blue that is simply perfect!
Besides foiling, another great way to instantly perk up your eyes and create that shiny effect is to pat glitter over a dark base. Case in point? The gorgeous glitter eye spotted at Thakoon A/W 2013.
Be it the fluid aqua liner at Anthony Vaccarello or a royal blue at Just Cavalli, ditching your regular black and brown eyeliner for blue is the way to go this Spring.
Earlier this week, I showed you how to rock blue, one of the hottest colors this Spring, with a dot of eyeliner under the eye. But if you like a bit more drama, nothing beats a dramatic smoky eye like the Arabian-inspired look at Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer 2013 show.
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.
