As one of the most flattering colours in cosmetics, this season saw models sashay down the catwalks in all manner of beautiful blue looks from futuristic looking swathes of cerulean to the new version of the classic cat eye, there is something for everyone.

For a fresh alternative to the time honoured blue look, opt for several layers of cream shadow in metallic aquamarine. This painterly hue works wonderfully with all skin tones and, for added drama can be paired with a slightly deeper shade of ink or gel eyeliner on the lower lids for even more impact.

Looking for something more matte? Rework midnight blue into the classic smokey eye for an unexpected depth of colour; the more intensely pigmented the shade the better.

Blue can also work for the everyday. Try tracing the inner corners of your eyes with an electric blue liner for instant wow factor. Bring your vintage cat-eye flick into the 21st century with a modern cobalt update, or tint your lashes, or even just a section of them, with a coat of bright blue mascara for a truly eye-popping look.
