Trend To Try: Icy Highlight

by Carli Prinsloo

ONE of the most effortless combinations in the fashion world is denim and make-up. Not just any make-up, but bold shades of azure, sky and sapphire blues. If you want to stand out from the crowd, we’re here to show you how to do it right. Below, a blue lipstick, eye or even cheek (!) look for every skin tone, as well as tips for applying this dramatic hue to match your denim wardrobe. This week we school you on how to rock an ice blue highlight.

NAVY lipstick should be worn in a similar vain to 1920’s and 30’s Old Hollywood black and white photographs. These ladies’ lips had depth that shaped the face. You can take that inspiration and transfer it to your make-up now. Contrast a dark lip with a quick sweep of highlighter (maybe even one with a blue tinge?) for added dimension and glow. The goal here is a light, shimmery finish that produces a multi-dimensional effect. Now you’re ready to make an entrance.
