8 Bollywood celebrities show how to wear blue makeup this season

Sharing is caring!

There’s no denying the allure of a statement red lip, and while it stays on as a classic makeup go-to, this season’s trend charts are currying favour to experimental tints, with blues leading the pack. Bollywood’s best has been spotted turning to shades of the hue (all fifty of them) to elevate a basic makeup look. Though the colour did inspire some concerns about how it would work with the Indian skin tone initially, the plethora of variations available are enough to put yours to rest. Allow your favourite Bollywood celebrities to play muse, and show you how to wear blue in your makeup.

Priyanka Chopra’s love for blue makeup

Never one to opt for the monotony of tried-and-tested classics, Priyanka Chopra has been making her beauty palette work hard as she does, and has tried almost every shade of blue she could get her hands on. Movie premieres call for mermaid-inspired glittery blue eyes, while day looks can be finished perfectly with a swipe of icy blue eyeliner (Our pick: Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Blue Me Away) on the lower lash line, as proved by some of her recent choices. Coloured mascara—like the Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Couture Mascara in I’m The Trouble—is another recurring favourite, and you’ll find her regularly plumping her lashes and dousing them with a tint of blue.

Sonam Kapoor-Ahuja and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s tryst with blue hues

If you’re just beginning your beauty introduction to the colour, let Sonam Kapoor-Ahuja occupy your mood board. The launch of her high street label, Rheson last year, had her pairing a denim jacket with smudged blue liner. Think the colour only works with contemporary outfits? The Veere Di Wedding star recently coordinated her ethnic Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla ensemble with a smoky blue eye—the Pat McGrath Labs Mothership I Eyeshadow Palette in Subliminal is perfect for this look—that will make you rethink your perspective to matchy makeup.

Once you’ve found your footing and grown more confident, make an attempt to find different ways to work in the colour, rather than just a dab of tinted eyeshadow on the lids. Esha Gupta trades her black eyeliner for a bright blue one quite often. Shraddha Kapoor has been spotted in two-toned eyeliner with a regal flick of blue outlining the crease of her lids as well. Once you’ve scaled the ranks, you’ll find Aishwarya Rai Bachchan waiting for you at the top. Not one to shy away from making a statement, her showstopper Michael Cinco gown at the Cannes this year was accompanied with a chunky blue glitter winged eye.

Expert tips to make blue makeup work for you

If you’re wondering which shade works best with the Indian skin tone, look to celebrity makeup artist Kritika Gill for answers. “You’ll find that striking shades of blue work really well on medium to deep skin tones. Jewel tones like navy, royal blue and even pop colours like cyan and turquoise should all be on your radar,” she recommends. The possibilities are endless; making this on-trend colour a part of your daily beauty look is easier than you thought. “The easiest way to incorporate blue in your makeup palette is to swap out your regulation black kohl pencil for a navy one. Coloured mascara is another non-boring way to introduce this colour to your daily beauty gig without letting it overwhelm your entire look. For those days when you want to make a statement, you can add a light wash of metallic blue on the lids for a smudgy smoky eye,” she recommends.
