Although cobalt blue may not be for the faint of heart, the makeup shade is mainstay in just about every beauty junkie’s collection we’ve seen — ours included. Whether we go for a bold blue eye or a subtle blue lash, the monochrome hue never fails to amp our look. Ahead, we rounded up five cobalt blue makeup products that will do wonders when it comes to adding the color into your minimalist or maximalist makeup routine this season.
Cobalt eyelashes are a great way to incorporate the color into your makeup look, especially if you’ve been weary of going balls to the wall blue in the past. . One or two coats of this high-shine, high-impact mascara will make your eyes pop in a way you never knew they could.
If you’re more of a beauty risk-taker to begin with, try applying the NYX Créme Colour in Blue as the eyeshadow base for your next eye makeup look. The reason for doing so is two-fold: First, it’ll make whatever shade you apply on top really standout, and second, it will lock your colorful look in place from day to night and beyond.
Another blue eye makeup hack we love is using the Pro Last Liner in Blue to define our lower lash line. This pretty cobalt shade looks gorgeous on every single skin tone (we’ve tested it), and it provides an element of surprise your usual black eye liner simply cannot.
Vivid Sapphire is as blue as its name suggests, and that’s the number-one reason why we love this liquid liner so much. This baby can be used to replace your typical black eyeliner wing, or you can get creative and use it to draw on small polkadot details or dramatic cut-crease lines.
