What She Wears: Blue

What She Wears: Blue

Contrary to the cobolt blue hue which still continues to be a big hit sine Summer 2008, the new blue hue for Spring is dusty blue.

Jennifer Aniston matched her Burberry dress to her stunning blue eyes for the London premiere of Marley and Me in early February 2009.  Rumour has it that she had Burberry dye the dress the exact colour of Jennifer’s eyes.

A dusty blue coloured dress would look stunning on you if you have Jennifer Aniston coloured eyes.  If you are looking to wear dusty blue to your next black tie event, we found a similar dress to Jennifer Aniston’s one in Coast.  You will be glad to know that Coast now offer an online shop with Euro prices for Irish shoppers (previously one had to order from their UK online shop if their stuff was sold out in Irish shops).  

At the Golden Globe Awards 2009, Drew Barrymore swapped her normal rock chick look for a
Hollywood starlet look in a dusty blueJohn Galliano for Christian Dior Couture dress.  Her shoes, though not visible here, were Roger Vivier.  The sheer overlay on her gown provides some bounce as Drew dazzled in a diamond bracelet and jewelled earrings.

Blue Makeup

Blue makeup has had a bad reputation of late, probably because it conjures up images of eighties gone wrong aerobics.  So,we were delighted to see a blue revival on the Spring Summer runways, namely in the form of Temperley London.

Add to your smokey eye makeup pallete with this navy blue look.  Instead of using charcoals or greys, copy the Temperley eye makeup shown  here with the following Mac products:  Fluidline in Waveline (€12) and Eye Kohl in Smoulder, again (€12) .

Alternative and similar products to create a stormy eye effect can be achieved with  Make Up For Ever’s Eyeshadow in True Blue 8 (€14) or  Matte Eye Shadow in Riviera Blue by Revlon (€4) .

While the Temperley runway version demands a lot of eye shadow applying, you can easily do a more wearable version. Check out Kate Hudson pictured here at the Bride Wars film premiere.  Instead of blending the shadow to the far edges of her eyes like the Temperley model does, she confines the colour to the eyelids only.

If this style is still too OTT for you, change the midnight blue eyeshadow for one that’s lighter and more grey.
