Seems the shade, BLUE, is taking over the runways, TV, and the red carpets. Everyone is feeling the Smurfette vibe and trying to mix it into their beauty routine some how or another. Here are a few recent beauty looks that have channeled this color in some unexpected ways…
The real life lady that started it all, (and I feel does it the best and the prettiest without actually looking like a Smurf) Miss Katy Perry, and that cotton candy blue hair from the Grammy Awards. This woman takes some beauty risks, and makes it work because the makeup is exquisite and lets the hair take center stage.
Then there was the Anna Sui fall/winter 2012 runway collection, where the models sported a deep blue winged + dot eye makeup look by the genius Pat McGrath. Not the most wearable, but still oddly pretty….
And lastly, one of the most disturbing makeup looks from Madrid fashion week from designer Lemoniez (which I actually had never heard of before until now) where the models looked like they had the worst case of frostbite ever on their blue lips. No pretty at all- but somehow I’m sure “pretty” wasn’t the look they were going for. Smurfette would have certainly disagreed with this shade that border lined an unexplained sickness.
