Various designers, including Christian Siriano, Kim Shui, Altuzarra, and Maryam Nassir Zadeh (shown here) styled their models in brilliant blue liners and shadows, reiterating what we already knew from this year’s Paris Haute Couture Week: Colorful makeup is back with a bang.

Altuzarra’s makeup look was not just aqua in color but in theme, too: Overseen by makeup artist Dick Page, the aesthetic was meant to embody women emerging from the depths of the ocean.

For the look, Page combined two shades of blue shadows— M.A.C. Cosmetics’ Frost Eyeshadow in shades “In The Shadows” and “Cobalt” — to create the mermaid makeup moment.

Kim Shui’s glam was very mod, and featured flipped-out hair, big lashes, and vibrant blue eyeshadow swept across the lids, up to the brow bone, and extended out into a cat eye.

Makeup artist Charlie Riddle used Stila Cosmetics’ Double Dip Suede Shade & Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Beach Wave to create this shimmery blue look at Bronx + Banco.

To add even more of an eye-catching pop, Riddle applied a layer of Stila’s Glitter & Glow Diamond Dust over the Beachwave shadow.

Over at Siriano, models wore a perfectly flicked cat eye — done with black eyeliner — topped with light but super bright blue eyeshadow.

Sofia Tilbury, Charlotte Tilbury brand ambassador and product & content creator, used this double-sided blue liner to complement the cobalt shades of Siriano’s F/W ‘22 collection.

Eckhaus Latta

A dusting of metallic blue on models’ inner corners was seen at Eckhaus Latta. Makeup artist Fara Homidi created a smudged look with “careless bits of grease and chunky glitter.”
