Saturday Night Makeup Idea: Cobalt Blue Mascara à la Corinne Bailey RaeNov 3, 2012 @ 3:30 pm
Peek-a-blue! No more lashing out with your go-to blacks and browns—this weekend try an electric blue eye for a statement-making look. Celebrity makeup artist Kay Montano gave us the how-to for recreating Corinne Bailey Rae’s voluminous cobalt lashes at home. To pump up Rae’s brown, almond-shaped eyes, she applied six coats of Dior Diorshow Mascara in Azure Blue ($25; at dior.com) to upper and lower lashes, then went over them with a disposable mascara wand to eliminate clumps. “Just layer, layer, layer until you like the results.” To finish, complement your eyes with a simple nude lip and a little concealer—“you don’t want to pair it with a strong lip or cheek because it could easily look tacky.” Check out all of Corinne’s makeup in the gallery below.
