We’re talking cerulean to azure, indigo to sapphire, cobalt to royal and everything in between. Here are the best-in-class best blue beauty buys that’ll always have you looking uber-cool.
SKY BLUE SUNLIT STROKES
Imagine this: you (bikini-clad) sauntering along the French Riviera, champagne flute in hand, gazing out at sandy-pebbled beaches kissing glittering, azure waves. Wanderlust at its best! Now, for the rest of us cooped up at work, there’s always the next best thing – daydreaming. Turn those Mediterranean escapades into reality as you trade in the usual boring black routine for hints of bold blue makeup. Douse waterlines in this silky-soft blue eyeliner pencil that glides on effortlessly, for a closer-to-home colorful getaway.
CYAN-DRENCHED SUPERHERO PEEPERS
To conquer dull days, take a cue from Wonder Woman, and simply amp up the drama. When life hands you lemons, unleash your inner confidence with a (not-so) secret power. Apply this silky cream-based shade to ensure unapologetic color that doesn’t quit. Create a feline flick or blend in easily for a peacock-esque smoked out eye with high-intensity pigments that don’t fade or smudge.
COOL-GIRL COBALT LASHES
Whoever said colored lashes were reserved for Halloween, didn’t know any better. Stash your tried-n-trusted black mascara in the backseat and let blue call shotgun. Especially flattering on dark brown eyes, this ’80s inspired shade curls and volumizes lashes to the max. For intensely-tinted fluttering cils just wiggle the brush at the base of your eyelids stroking upwards to coat as well as elongate.
SHIMMERY TURQUOISE LIIDS
If the recent cerulean craze has got you feeling more experimental than otherwise, apply this shade to mimic a mermaid. As blue as the bright sky packed with iridescent, pearly particles, this pop of aqua will elevate your eyelids as soon as it’s dusted on. Apply a single layer of this blue eyeshadow on the inner crease while adding a couple more strokes on the lash line and centre for an instant eye contour.
SWISH OF SAPPHIRE
Would you dare to wear a blue pout? If you’re in two minds, take inspo from this Avatar-like blue lipstick that says it all. The pretty and potent, intensely pigmented lipstick gives a high color pay-off with a matte, creamy texture that’s comfortable on lip, offers full coverage and sits comfortably all day long. Just what you need to revive your inner Goth child!
PRETTY PASTEL HANDLING
Call it what you like: baby blue, minty blue or even powder blue, but this baby’s pastel hue coupled with its Mick Jagger-like moves will leave you swooning. And, if the much-coveted flawless base like Insta-Star Huda is what you need, then this is your go-to. Designed for an airbrushed finish, this well-rounded, easy-to-grip tool coupled with ultra-soft, slightly tinted bristles will leave you selfie-ready in minutes. Chuck that filter. Who needs it anyway?
CHILLY PERIWINKLE TIPS

This fashion-forward, statement-making blue nail polish hue resembles their fearless, stone-cold gaze that dries up to a stunning matte finish. What’s more, the formula is chip-resistant too.
