Still Feeling Blue – Beauty Backstage – Marc by Marc Jacobs

Blue eyes show no sign of abating, or indeed waning, in the affections of Creative Directors across the globe. 

Blue eyes seem to be the new dark lip, in their perpetual presence on the runways; slowly becoming  staple.
 Initiated by Stella McCartney with her blue mascara of SS13, the look has continually been developed, with azure rimmed lower lids at Stella and sky blue crescents at Michael Kors for Autumn/Winter ‘13-14.

Just when I though it was time to pack away my blue bits for at least a season, enter Marc Jacobs making us fall in love with the hue all over again,  with his offering; a shimmering blue swept all across eyelids. 

As you can see, the Shisheido shade, dubbed ‘Ice‘, perhaps because of its metallic finish, or because it’s just cool, suits all skin tones from fair to dark, and is equally striking on everyone. 

Ensuring his icy eyes would be the centre of attention, Marc forwent mascara and  blusher, whilst hairstylist Guido Palau centre-parted models’ hair and fastened it beneath the red or black silk scarves, that had been tied around their necks.
The result was Boho all-American girls, who appeared to be part of a very cool coven.
