Colour trend: blue

Monday, 19 May 2014

The colour blue is definitely trending this year and there’s no doubt why. Dark blue is said to represent knowledge, power, seriousness and integrity, while light blue is associated with softness, tranquillity and understanding. It also said to be beneficial to the mind and body.

So what better colour to bring through in our daily fashion and beauty routine than blue? Whether its coating our lashes in royal blue or lining our eyes in light blue, or invigorating ourselves with a fresh blue shower gel, here are some powerful beauty products in the shade blue that we love.

    I’ve tried the Berry scented shower gel from Nivea and it does a good job of moisturising and has a really nice smell. I’ll be sure to try out the Pure Fresh variant.

      Hi Nas33ma, L’Oreal Miss Manga has a beautiful blue shade & it is reasonably priced.

    I love the idea of blue mascara to bring out a bit of playfulness. I’d do it with a winged liner and keep the rest of the makeup very neutral.

    MAC blue pencil is great if you want to add some edge to your look. I have my eye on that blueberry lip balm from The Body Shop, the hand and nail cream from Sorbet and the Essie nail polish.

    I like blue eye colour. I must haste to say, it can easily be a disaster if one does not take caution to apply. Thinking blue headed lizard. ;o)
