You may think that blue eye makeup is a thing of the past, but this season’s looks has proven that to be completely false. Chanel’s 2014 Resort Collection was all about a bold, graphic winged eye paired with bright blue shadow. I think it’s a gorgeous and completely unique look, but it’s not totally wearable. However, I think it’s a great source to draw inspiration for your summer makeup looks. Incorporating bold blue tones into your eye makeup is a great way to add a fresh, bold, summery feel to your look. Here is my turquoise and blue eye-makeup tutorial:

My Turquoise Eye Tutorial:I used a gel eyeliner to create a winged eye, and a small, flat brush to apply a turquoise eye shadow underneath the eye. Beauty tip: pair with a nude lip, and it creates a Chanel-inspired makeup look for summer that is much more wearable.
Blue Eye Makeup Beauty Tips:There are also many other ways to create looks inspired by Chanel’s Resort Collection. Here are my suggestions on how to get that gorgeous deep-blue effect:
1. Don’t just stick to turquoise- try out all different shades of blue for your eye makeup.
2. Use a blue eyeliner. Simply using a blue eyeliner on addition to your black eyeliner (or in place of it) is a great way to add a new and different element to your regular routine.
3. Make sure to blend. Even using a blue eye shadow all over your eyelid can be a gorgeous pop of color for summer. Just make sure to take your time blending it in so that there are no harsh lines.
4. Use an eye-shadow primer. Always use an eye shadow primer to help your makeup last all day. I highly recommend the Urban Decay Eye shadow Primer Potion!
