Blue Mascara - Love it or leave it?
We’ve seen plenty of 90s inspired trends on this year’s runways and many designers have drawn their inspiration from the last decade of the 20th century. Backstage at the Stella McCartney fall 2012 show, models sported electric blue eyelashes – if you’re a child of 80s, you most definitely remember the blue mascara craze! “Stella said to me, ‘I just love a girl with color on her lashes,’ ” explained Pat McGrath, the makeup artist behind the look, who applied a coat of CoverGirl Lashblast 24 Hour Mascara in black ($7.99) to the lashes, followed by vibrant blue pigment gel.
The key to pulling of this makeup look is balance. Pair the blue mascara with a fresh, luminous base, groomed eyebrows and naked but well moisturized lips.
