Well, hello there, Keri Russell! We saw this eye makeup look all over the runways at Fashion Week, and now the gorgeous television star proves you can in fact rock blue eyeshadow off the catwalk—and not look like you’re going to an ’80s dance party. Want to try it for yourself? We’ll show you how below.
The icy blue makeup makes Keri’s green eyes really pop. But you don’t need green eyes to pull off the fun look. Just make sure you stick to shades of cobalt and teal; pastel blue and aqua look too childish. (Our beauty director loves this eyeshadow quad from L’Oreal.) First, apply a flesh-toned eyeshadow base and then the blue shadow on top. Use either a blue or black eyeliner and black mascara. The most important step in recreating this look is to keep your other makeup simple. Take note of the rest of Keri’s makeup: dewey skin, perfectly groomed brows, and a totally-natural lip color.
Throw on a lace cami, structured blazer, and leather jeggings like Keri did, and you’ve got yourself an edgy-glam date-night look.
