How to Wear Blue Eye Makeup Without Looking Like You Stepped out of the 80s: Birchbox Intern Diaries

I could not be more excited that some spring weather is finally here. With a new season, comes new beauty trends. Case in point: blue eyeshadow dominated the Spring ‘13 runways but we know for most women it conjures up images of bad 80s Glamour Shots. Not to worry, it is possible to wear blue eye makeup without looking cheesy. Watch to see two different blue looks on Birchbox staffers Bre and Juliette.

What 80’s trends do you hope make a comeback?  Let us know in the comments.

Call A Code Blue With Your Makeup This Spring
If spring is about anything, it’s about color. That means it’s officially time to store your black cashmere and bust out your neon skinny jeans! And if you’re like us, you’re not just refreshing your wardrobe, you’re also embracing a brighter beauty look. 
The easiest way ever to incorporate a pop of color into your daily beauty routine is with a shadow or liner. After seeing blue eye makeup everywhere during the spring runway shows, we’re officially gaga for all cool-hued shades, from cobalt to pastel. We’re especially loving a wash of MAKE’s Satin Finish Eyeshadow in Blue Toile on lids for a dreamy and subtle look, or a swipe or two of stila’s Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Liner to create a bold cat eye (fun fact: we used it for the shot above!). 
To embrace the blue eye makeup trend yourself, hop on over to our Code Blue Shop!
