Best Beauty Trends Of The Year: Cobalt Blue


2013 has been an exciting and busy year in the world of beauty, with trends including everything from textured manicures to neon bright lip colours. Looking back on the year, one of our favourite looks was the cobalt blue and denim-inspired eye, which quickly made a statement this summer and fall.

On the runway, Jason Wu featured cobalt blue eyeliner as part of Autumn/Winter 2013 collections at New York Fashion Week. The indigo blue tones quickly set the stage for makeup trends this year, and created a welcome change from classic black.

Just Cavalli also featured royal blue as part of its beauty looks for Spring 2013, with bold and bright liner setting off the designer’s fierce looks on the catwalk. The “denim eye” trend has made its way from the runway to the city streets, with Stila offering its popular Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Cobalt ($20, available at Sephora).

With the year coming to an end, we are looking forward to 2014’s top beauty trends. Will cobalt eyes continue to dominate beauty collections and the runways? We’ll have to wait and see.
