Trend To Try: Up In Smoke

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.

WITH any kind of smoky eye it’s important to start by prepping eyelids with a primer to make sure the shadow stays put and doesn’t crease. Now grab the shadow. Apply a dark blue to the outer two thirds of the lid, then fill in any remaining lid space with a lighter shimmery blue shadow. Carry the shimmery shade down, applying it along your lower lash line, too. Complement your bold blue eyes with a few layers of mascara and a barely there nude lip.
