07 Jun Colour Trend; Azul Nights

We should have all learnt by now that anything the Kardashians do tend to turn into overnight trends. They come as quickly as they go but I’m particularly enamoured by one of the latest to come out of the KKW craze.

Thanks to her recently launched makeup collaboration with her long time makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, for KKW Beauty, Kim has single handily brought back bright blue eyeshadow. It’s left me wondering why the majestic colour ever left our makeup arsenals?

While a stormy navy eye has been spotted multiple times on red carpets in recent years, none of the looks have been quite as bold and vivid as KKWs cobalt blue. The reality star was inspired by iconic pop goddess Cher, and their shared Armenian roots. Never one to shy away from a fashion (or beauty) statement, Cher frequently wore blue eyeshadow while performing and boy did she make it look easy to pull off.

The great thing about the shade though, is that is really is as equally wearable as it is bold. You don’t have to go for a complete blue block of colour either and instead incorporate a single line of eyeliner to add a little fun, or switch up a smokey eye with a single swipe of the colour on the centre of your lids.

Take a look at some of our favourite inspiration…
