Stella McCartney Fall/Winter 12 Paris Fashion Week show
Fancy reviving a once-mocked 1990s beauty trend? Then make sure you opt for electric blue lashes this summer.

That’s right, vibrant blue peepers have had beauty blogs buzzing ever since they graced the runway of Stella McCartney’s Fall/Winter 12 Paris Fashion Week show earlier this month.

So, what’s the inspiration behind the retro look?

“Stella said to me, ‘I just love a girl with colour on her lashes,’” explained makeup artist Pat McGrath, who styled the show.

To create the look, Pat applied a coat of CoverGirl Lashblast 24 Hour Mascara in black to the lashes, followed by vibrant blue pigment gel.

And beauty brands are now scrambling to meet the demand for the electric blue look.

Here are some blue mascaras to try:

Styli-Style Colorlash in Blue – A great option if you’re looking for a high impact look. This intensely-hued blue will give your eyes that vibrant pop of colour you’re looking for.

Christian Dior Diorshow Mascara in Azure Blue – This lovely aqua blue gives a noticeable effect, even after one coat. Plus it’ll leave your lashes nice and nourished too.

YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils in Extreme Blue – If you’re on the lookout for a multi-tasker, opt for this super-luxe mascara which conditions, lengthens and adds a shimmer of dazzling blue.

Dr. Hauschka Lash Colour Mascara in Blue – This rose-scented volumising mascara adds both colour and definition to the lashes.

Maybelline Great Lash Washable Mascara in Royal Blue – Just a slick of this thickening mascara will give you true blue dazzling peepers. © Cover Media
