Blue eye shadow is a beauty mainstay—a classic that can range in results from dated faux-pas to a fashion-forward force to be reckoned with. Last year's Spring 2016 runways saw a reemergence of the latter in striking sweeps in all the right shades. A full year later, bright blue eye shadow is still having a moment. This past New York fashion week saw softer iterations with icy blue shimmer frosting the eyes at Marc Jacobs and outlined eyelids in a hue tiptoeing toward turquoise at Christian Siriano. But it was Milan that really turned the time-tested trend on its head. By the time fashion week reached the Italian fashion capital, the bold beauty look snowballed into shameless, geometric shocks of color in thick, painted blocks. One shade of blue in particular made its mark on the Milan catwalks.
