The easiest colour prediction from Pantone- after ‘Living Coral’ in ’19, ‘Ultra Violet’ in ’18 and ‘Greenery’ in ’17- the Colour of 2020 is… CLASSIC BLUE.
So while clothes and shoes shaded blue make it easy channeling the vibe. Challenge yourself with some blue makeup!
Huda Beauty Sapphire Obsessions Palette (Rs. 2495)
This fit-in-the-bag eyeshadow palette has blue themed shimmers and matte. Stick to using two shades or get adventurous with all nine.
Tip: Tackle shimmer and glitter eyeshadows with a spritz of MAC Fix+ on a flat tipped brush.
Lakme Insta Liner in Blue (Rs 120)
This very affordable liquid liner is the BRIGHTEST blue I’ve seen. And the price being right is an #InstaWin!
Tip: If you fail at applying liner with a steady hand, keep a ear bud dipped in makeup remover handy to tackle it without spoiling your makeup.
MAC Matte Royal (Rs 1800)
I’d like to believe me ladies and lads love themselves a little style experiment. Like painting ones puckers a head-turner blue with the MAC Matte Royal.
Tip: Finding a lip liner in the colour is tough. Use a thin tipped brush dipped into the bullet to help.
Kiko Milano Smart Colour Mascara in Electric Blue (Rs 590)
Let your eyes do the talking with coloured lashes! Kiko does some really good and affordable makeup and the Electric Blue mascara is another WOW product in its bouquet.
Tip: Always smart to love your lashes post mascara removal with some castor oil or cold pressed almond oil.
Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel in Blueberry Compote (Rs 199)
The easiest way to go Classic Blue, especially in the drudgery that is work life, is with a bottle of blue nail paint. There are a number in the market, however consider some matte loving instead.
Colorbar Just Smoky Eye Kajal in Just Blue (Rs 675)
The Just Smoky Eye Kajal range from Colorbar is a personal fave. It’s intensely pigmented and long stay. The kajal comes with a smudger making it easier to get that sultry slept in look.
Tip: Lining your waterline with kajal and painting the lashes with mascara is an easy day-time look.
It’s a given that makeup should be applied to accentuate ones features, but balancing is key.
Like when you’re painting your eyes blue, keep your lips a brownish nude. Pair the blue pout with a sharp cat-eye in black. (But don’t leave your eyes bare here lest you look washed out.)
Another tip when taking out your colourful makeup is to dress black, white or matching with it. Let your face- and hard work- remain focus.
