Case of the blues: Budget-friendly and budget-blasting blue eyeliners

title blue

With the snow finally melting and weather getting warmer, I have been rocking one of my favourite summer trends, blue eyeliner along the lower lashline.

I have done a few looks using this technique on my blog and I absolutely love it.  It creates a pop of colour to any look and is so fresh and fun for the summertime.  Rock it during the day, at the beach, or at night – really anywhere!

There are a few ways you can achieve it; either with a wet eyeliner brush and electric blue eyeshadow, or with eyeliners.  I have a few different eyeliners that I’ve done it with and they range from drugstore to department store, so therefore you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to create it.

Splurge! Lancome Kohl in Love eyeliner in Jade Crush (C$24)


This electric-blue beauty glides on your lids and leaves you with vibrant colour that lasts all day long.  This eyeliner is probably my favourite of the three because it’s oh so creamy and the colour is just perfect for spring and summer (plus it’s waterproof, so you can rock it at the beach and pool and it’s not going to budge).

Note, this colour came out in their spring line, check your Lancome counter to see if they still have it (I’m not sure if it’s limited edition or permanent).

Save! Rimmel London ScandalEyes Shadow Sticks in Tempting Turquoise (C$6.99)

This one is a double-whammy because it acts as a liner, eyeshadow, and eyeshadow base.  The colour is a vibrant turquoise that provides a high-shine and luminous finish.  Rimmel also makes a turquoise liner in their ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal liners that is also as radiant.

This blue isn’t as vibrant and bold as the first two but it’s a good alternative for those who want to rock the trend but want a toned-down, more conservative version of it.  This liner isn’t as creamy at the Lancome version, but it’s quite easy to work with and it does glide on.

Whether you choose to save or splurge, rocking the blue eyeliner trend is easy.  Blue may be a scary colour at first, but once you learn how to wear it, it can create a fun look.

For a different pop of colour, layer the blue over top of your black winged liner.  There are numerous ways you can rock it!
