If the Spring 2016 runways are any indication, then blue is the new black—when it comes to eye makeup . Azure lids popped up all over the New York Fashion Week runways, including at the Marc Jacobs and Diane von Fürstenberg shows. Meanwhile in London, a bolt of electric blue wrap-around liner made an appearance at Jonathan Saunders and black mascara was swapped for a striking stroke of navy at Mary Katrantzou. The beauty trend also caught on in Milan where Tod’s sent its models down the runway wearing blue mascara, with their eyes further accentuated with blue kohl.
It remains to be seen whether the color will also pop up on the Paris Fashion Week runways, but it seems that this might be the year that colored mascara finally takes off. One thing is for certain—whether it’s a splash of turquoise on the lashes or a full on shaded lid, the oceanic hue is perfect for those who like to make a statement.
