Looking for a way to REALLY make your eye makeup pop and last? Try foiling, a popular technique that involves applying eyeshadow wet to create a shiny, foil-like effect.
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.

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.
