Summer Blues

Bold Shadows to Try This Season

 

Blue is trending this Summer for a bold makeup look that demands all eyes on you. I know what you’re thinking, didn’t we leave this makeup trend behind in the ’90s? Like all beauty trends, fashion designers and makeup artists are putting a new spin on the vivid blue look and accepting blues of all shades, tints, and hues. There are so many different ways to play with the dynamic color from poolside blue to sapphire blue. As makeup artists, testing the waters is always fun, especially when your clients are on board.

When you think of blue, what comes to mind? Many people think of the sky and sea. The color is generally associated with expansiveness, open spaces, freedom, imagination, and sensitivity. But not all blues mean the same thing. Different shades of blue have different meanings, some of which are complex and contradicting. While cooler blues are light and friendly, electric and vibrant blues are dynamic and dramatic.

No matter the feeling, the color invites self-expression and can diversify your lookbook.
