While a punchy cobalt pout may have once been considered socially unacceptable, getting blue in the face is now trendy. In fact, rebellious blue lipstick has been making recent waves among beauty lovers of every stripe. From the unassuming girl next door to the rocker chick with a passion for enriched hues, blue-toned lip colours can officially be embraced by just about anyone.

If you’re wondering how to wear the trend (without looking like an alien), turn to glowing skin and neutral eye makeup. Dark winged liner, a subtly smudged smokey eye and peachy cheeks can highlight your statement lip.

Meanwhile, adventurous beauties can emphasize their eyelids with dark blue winged liner, for a contrasting effect. Paint on a matching pout to enhance your blue lids, and stick to minimal illuminating foundation for fresh, youthful skin. The look of seductive liquid lipstick is perfect for creating an eye-catching look, while a darker navy matte lip can offer a dramatic touch.
Although it may be best to avoid blue lipstick during business hours, the lip trend can easily transform your makeup look for the evening hours. If you’re hitting the party circuit or checking out a concert, a swipe of bleu just may revive your visage.
