Whether it's because the '90s are making a comeback or now, more than ever, consumer makeup toes the line every so closely to pro makeup brands, blue makeup for every part of your face is now a thing. Since shades of blue makeup can sometimes give us beauty butterflies, we talked to MAC Cosmetics senior artist Jane McKay (who keys looks for runway shows all over the globe) on how to navigate this daring blue beauty trend with style and sass for the day-to-day.
Take the plunge with a blue lip
McKay agrees that the blue lip is for “the adventurous spirit,” but explains that no matter what skin tone you have, you can still try it out: Someone with a darker complexion can wear dark blue beautifully as it doesn’t contrast that natural skin tone that much, but it also looks fantastic on a fair person as it does contrast their natural skin tone. McKay recommends a matte dark blue lipstick applied with a lip brush so it appears deliberate and bold.
