We’re all aflutter about the latest eye trend that has got the Internet spellbound


Forget classic black, what's hot right now is coloured mascara. But not just any colour will do. You're looking at deep azure, bold aquamarine, smoky cobalt and the likes. The blue eye makeup trend was first popularised in the 80s with Princess Diana reportedly being a big fan of the look.


The blue toned mascara trend then re-emerged over a few fashion seasons and earlier this year at the New York Fashion Week, again we saw models got dolled up in the cool hue. Soon after, we saw celebrities like Ashley Graham, Cara Delevingne and Priyanka Chopra taking on the blue mascara as well to stunning effect.


Fast-forward to today, Pinterest is registering over 200 per cent increase in its searches for blue mascara. If there's ever a time to give it a go, it's now.


We get it, blue mascara can be intimidating in theory but in practice, you will achieve statement lashes that command attention. Don't fret you can't pull it off! Pro tip – smokey blues work on everyone. Apply your shade of blue nearer to the root of the lash, so you get just a subtle hint of colour.
