How to Rock the Bold Blue Eyeliner Trend of 2014 With Mary Kay

Did anyone see Kendall Jenner’s pic. rocking the bold and blue cat eye? This bold-eye-look has taken off as one of the hottest 2014 spring and summer trends of the year! Don’t think you can wear it like Kendall? Well…lets be honest, she didn’t do her own makeup anyways which makes you about ten times cooler for busting out the blue cat eye trend and experimenting with out the help of an on-site makeup artist. Just sayin.

So I was excited when Mary Kay sent me their Blue My Mind eye liner along with some other makeup picks that are well suited to go with this bright-eyed look.

cat eye Although I did wear this look to the grocery store, church, and nearly to the gym (I have no shame), the blue cat eye does really stand out! So, my suggestion would be to pair this bold eye with a more subtle face. I would go with a nude gloss, softly tinted cheeks, and a cream or bronze colored eyeshadow that will be complimentary to the Cobalt blue. I would highly suggest to not pair this with a red lip unless you are wearing it on the 4th of July (kidding…..not even on the 4th of July).

cobalt blue eyeliner trend

 

Brand Overview: Love your lashes with the mascara that defines, defends and delivers four times the volume while looking naturally flawless, soft and healthy. The flexible, sculpted brush separates and coats lashes.

  • Flake-, Smudge- and clump-resistant.
  • Mary Kay® Panthenol-Pro Complex™ helps condition lashes and helps defend against breakage.

My Thoughts: For whatever reason, this best selling and award winning Mary Kay mascara didn’t do it for my lashes. As you can see in the up-close of my lashes…it just wasn’t really doing anything for them and I had a few layers on. I am curious to see if anyone else has tried this and it worked well for them?

 

Are you planning on rocking this bold and blue cat eye look?

xo!
