How To: Wear Dreamy Blues

Text by Aparrna Gupta

This season saw a surge of sunset shades, whites, blues and nudes on the ramp. Verve speaks to make-up experts on how to dress your face while you slip into haute runway colours

Colour Code
With bold blues, Sarwate favours using a dramatic eyeliner in a winged out or graphic shape to enhance the depth of the colour. Highlighted, luminous complexion and glossy lips also work well, he adds. “Blue looks great with a bright orange/pink/red lipstick and brown smokey eyes,” says Nischol. Fernandes also seconds the stunning pairing of a blue outfit with a pink mouth. If you are wary of smokey eyes but want to tread a line further from keeping your eyes neutral, he suggests a dark metallic blue on the waterline for understated glamour.

Beauty Tip
Go graphic. Think out of the box. Create unconventional shapes and add drama to your eyes.
