OUR BEST BLUE EYELINERS
Let’s get right down the business: our best blue eyeliners! Depending on the look you’re going for, you may prefer a pencil or liquid eyeliner. Lucky for you, we offer a variety of blue hues in both eyeliner types.
OUR BEST BLUE PENCIL EYELINERS
A fan of pencil eyeliner? Here are two blue pencil eyeliners to try.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Cobalt Blue or True Teal: This pencil eyeliner is available in two blue shades. The long-lasting, smudge-proof pencil glides on easily for creamy color that lasts all day without smudging.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner in Navy: If you want to ease into the blue eyeliner trend, consider swapping your go-to black for this navy shade. The mechanical pencil eyeliner has a built-in sharpener and smudger so you can easily switch up your eyeliner look. With its long-lasting, fade-proof formula, the creamy liner glides on easily and evenly.
OUR BEST BLUE LIQUID EYELINERS
More of a liquid gal? Here is our best blue liquid eyeliner.
L’Oréal Paris Matte Signature Liquid Dip Eyeliner, Waterproof in Blue: Equipped with a precision applicator, this liquid dip eyeliner allows you to get closer to the eye for the perfect application. This blue offering is also formulated for all-day wear and provides a vivid matte finish that will go the distance.
HOW TO WEAR BLUE EYELINER
Ready to add blue eyeliner to your eye makeup repertoire? If you’re not sure how to wear blue eyeliner, consider the following five blue eyeliner looks.
BLUE EYELINER LOOK #1: WING IT
For a statement look, use a blue liquid eyeliner to create your sharpest wing. This eyeliner style looks best when paired with a neutral, nude eye shadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Paris Beach, so your liner can be the true star.
BLUE EYELINER LOOK #2: LINE YOUR LOWER LASH LINE
Alternatively, you can bring the attention to the bottom of your eye by lining along your lower lash line with a blue eyeliner pencil. Pair the look with a coordinating blue eye shadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24HR Eye Shadow in Endless Sea or Midnight Blue, on your lid.
BLUE EYELINER LOOK #3: ADD AN ACCENT TO YOUR INNER CORNER
If you’re testing the waters when it comes to this eyeliner trend, or if you simply prefer to make your blue eyes pop in a subtle way, try lining the inner corner of your eye with a blue pencil eyeliner. Balance the pop of color with something neutral like a brown smoky eye, and you’ll have a look that’s fit for just about any occasion.
BLUE EYELINER LOOK #4: CREATE A CUT CREASE
The cut crease is the perfect eye makeup look for those who want to turn heads with their makeup look, and it can easily be created with blue liquid eyeliner for an even more eye-catching look. Give the negative space cut crease a try to let your blue hue really stand out. For a step-by-step tutorial, here’s How to Create a Negative Space Cut Crease.
BLUE EYELINER LOOK #5: DEFINE YOUR WATERLINE
Last but not least, you can wear blue eyeliner by applying it to your waterline. This look is particularly fitting for those with blue eyes, as it’ll subtly highlight the ocean-like color of your irises. So pretty!
