Kristen Stewart's Blue Smoky Eye Look From 'Nylon' Cover Is Easy To Recreate With These 5 Products
Smoky eyes and cat eyes are two makeup looks that will probably never, ever go out of style. What does change, evolve, and go in and out of style are the respective colors and shapes of smoky and cat eyes. Kristen Stewart's blue smoky eyes on her Nylon cover are super on trend for fall 2015. All jewel tones are heating up as the weather gets cooler, but the universally flattering navy is especially on point.
If you want to get this "right now" and fall-approved look, there are some key products that can help you recreate it. But before we go there, let's gawk at the cover shot!
In the image, Stewart's messy, asymmetrical bob is no muss, no fuss. Her print jacket and statement necklace add a dose of glam. Her tomboy chic, which she recently demonstrated with her skull and crossbone slippers, is on full display. She may be a somewhat reluctant fashion icon, but K. Stew owns the title.
But let's be honest. It's her blue-rimmed eyes that give her look a high-fashion feel. Personally, I love a blue smoky eye but it's a look that is not always super easy to do. Sure, imperfect lines are what make smoky eyes great, but you definitely don't want navy shadow all over your cheeks.
Just remember to rim, pat, smudge, and buff, whether it's liner or shadow.
If you want a case of the blues, here are some new products to get you there.
1. MAC Electric Cool Shadow In Switch To Blue
This frosty cobalt shadow is bright in the container, but you can dab and buff so you get a wash of color around your eyes. You can do different concentrations, too. Add more shadow to your lash line after buffing for more intensity. ($22, maccosmetics.com)
2. Make Up For Ever Aqua Matic Waterpoof Glide-On Eye Shadow In Iridescent Electric Blue
This pencil is a dream, since it applies like a liquid liner. Draw and smudge with your finger if you desire that imperfect look. You can also use this to line your lower lashline. ($22, makeupforever.com)
3. Urban Decay Eye Shadow In Dive Bar
Who knew having the blues could be so much fun? Urban Decay's Dive Bar is a punchy shade that is versatile. Apply several layers for an electric blue smoky eye or stick with two layers for a light wash. ($19, urbandecay.com)
4. Ardency Inn Modster Eyeliner In True Blue
You can line your waterline with this electric blue liner for an extra dose of pop! ($19, ardencyinn.com)
5. Hard Candy Poppin' Pigments In Sea Blue
Not ready to shell out over $10 just to give blue a shot? Or looking for some glittery pizzazz to add to any/all of these products I've suggested? Then go with these loose, metallic pigments. They are messy, yes, but they are fun to play with too. Just make sure you have lots of makeup wipes to clean up the fallout. ($6, walmart.com)
Consider this your blue smoky eye starter kit. All these products can be used solo or together to bring out your inner Kristen Stewart.
