Blue Eyeliner Trend

You all know that the cat-eye is an essential part of my everyday beauty routine, but every once and a while, you've gotta switch it up...just a little! Bright blue eyeshadows and liners were probably the biggest trend to come from the Spring/Summer 2015 runway shows, and it really is a great way to change up your look as the weather gets warmer.

I recently worked with London Drugs to show you my favourite way to wear this new blue liner trend, and best of all, we created the whole look with mineral cosmetics, from Youngblood Cosmetics! For people with sensitive skin, rosacea, or who are just looking for makeup free of talc, parabens, oil and fragrance, you have got to try this stuff! Personally, mineral makeup has always made me hesitate; I figured that it must be missing something, like good coverage, vivid colour, or a long lasting formula. But mineral cosmetics have really upped their game! I wore this makeup all day on set while we were shooting beauty videos, and it looked as good at the end of the day as it did when I applied it! Keep reading below for my favourites from the video:

Want to try the look? Here's everything you need to get started.

These were my favourites from the shoot:

Youngblood Eye-mazing Liquid Liner Pen ($32 at

I wasn't expecting the kind of colour pay-off that this pen gave off! Such a beautiful, electric blue colour (in the shade Azul), that really pops beautifully on the skin. I couldn't believe how long-lasting it was too! I didn't wear any primer underneath, and the liner didn't budge all day. I would buy this liner in a second..and definitely would give the shade Verde a try too: it looks like a beautiful green!

Youngblood Mineral Primer ($48 at

This primer feels ah-mazing! It reminded me right away of my silicone-based primer from Smashbox - nice and silky on the skin, filling in an small lines or imperfections nicely. This primer is packed with all kinds of great things like vitamins and minerals too though, which is an added bonus: vitamins A & E help with skin rejuvenation and antioxidant protection. If you're going to be wearing something on your skin all day, it better feel great and do you skin some good!

Youngblood Brow Artiste Sculpting Pencil ($30 at

I have been using this brow pencil every single day since our shoot! As I mention in the video, it's the perfect shade of blonde (which believe me, is not usually easy to find), and the pencil itself is quite a unique shape. The long shape of the pencil tip makes it much easier to feather with than a pencil with a circular tip, giving a far more natural effect that is build-able. Just like the liner pen, the formula lasted all day with no issues!

I seriously cannot wait to wear this look again! The eyeliner is definitely a bold choice, but by keeping everything else relatively neutral, I think you could get away with this as an evening or weekend look no problem.

Happy Styling! xo
