Spring Beauty Trend: Blue Eyeshadow

Spring Beauty Trend: Blue Eyeshadow(Source: ImaxTree)Here’s yet another fad that comes courtesy of the 1980s: blue eyeshadow. But this time around, it’s a lot more sophisticated, as seen on the spring 2014 runways. David Bowie and Donna Jordan were the inspiration behind the eye makeup at Marc by Marc Jacobs (above). Makeup artist Dick Page applied a block of blue around the eyes to make them pop.
