Blue eye shadow is set to be one of the biggest make up trends this spring and as usual we are keen to give any beauty trend a try, so it is time that we forget all about the 80s association.

Jennifer Lopez ditched her usual bronze eye makeup in favour of an icy baby blue shadow for the American idol series 14 finalist party. The 45 year old chose to wear a short collared white mini dress with gold floral embellishment paired with a white clutch and nude court shoes, but it was definitely her makeup which stole the show.

 

To rock this trend try lining the top and bottom lashes with your eye shadow of choice like JLo for a youthful look. To really bring out the ice queen in you make sure that you thinly line your upper lid with liquid eyeliner and apply a touch of mascara. The blue shadow should speak for itself. Your base should be flawless with just a hint of sparkly pink blusher to highlight your cheekbones.

If you want to try a look that is a bit more subtle then go for an eye shadow that is quite translucent. Blend it well along your lash line and only apply the one layer.

Really open up your eyes and make them pop by mixing a bit of white eye shadow with the blue. Don’t forget to dot a touch of the white in the inner corners of your eye. It is important that you do use the eyeliner and mascara as without them you run the risk of them getting lost in the blue, and potentially looking smaller.

If you just want to introduce a hint of the trend then why not give blue mascara a go? Just keep your eye makeup neutral.
