Edgy? 80s? Punk? Pretty? Or just… undeniably cool? Wherever you land, no other beauty product is as divisive, striking or statement-making as blue eyeliner. It adds energy, gives a twist and works a little harder. But not all are created equal: When it comes to blue the shade really matters, as does the formula. Deep navy is always elegant. Smudgy and diffused reads artsy and abstract. Take it and make it your own! These three shades of blue have the personality and potential to carve out their own unique niche in your makeup bag.
MOST FUN BLUE EYELINER SHADE: DEEP TEAL
When you want to stand out, this is your blue! Tattoostudio Sharpenable Gel Pencil in Deep Teal is technically a jewel-toned mix of blue and green pigments which makes it more experimental. Use it to create a striking graphic eyeliner look and pair it with a pink eyeshadow to really make it pop! The best thing is it's in our most long-wearing, budge-proof eyeliner formula.
MOST TIMELESS BLUE EYELINER SHADE: STRIKING NAVY
You’ve got to love navy. Especially Tattoostudio Sharpenable Gel Pencil's Striking Navy. As chic and cool as black eyeliner, but without the heaviness, this quintessentially elegant shade reads from afar as black, but when you get up close you notice the subtle and lovely distinction of color. This long-wearing gel pencil is especially effective for lining the lower water-rims of eyes, a makeup trick that makes eyes pop and looks extra cool in navy blue.
MOST VERSATILE BLUE EYELINER SHADE: SAPPHIRE
The Unstoppable Mechanical Eyeliner Pencil in Sapphire is our pick for the best everyday blue eyeliner shade. This self sharpening mechanical pencil can create any number of looks, from low-key to high impact. But it’s this rich, inky, blue shade that’s so special. A little bit blue, a little bit black, a little bit grey—it’s the special little beauty touch to break you out of your everyday makeup rut.
