The looks featuring blue eyeshadows are one of the biggest trends of recent times: they made their first appearance both with the arrival of the cold season and in the fashion shows in September (2020), and they were soon to be found everywhere on magazines, editorials, Instagram. We played with them so we could show you the best ones!
If so far you’ve thought of blue as a challenging and difficult color to wear, now is the time to change your mind: in 2021 blue eyeshadow should be worn every day, in a new, more versatile version. What are you waiting for? Unleash the creativity that is within you and indulge yourself with colorful make-up that reminds us of the color of the sea and the summer sky, but also of the color of the darkest nights.
Are you ready to dive into the blue, painted blue?

The packaging? A blue metal box that reminds us of snow!
Dior, 5 Couleurs Couture Palette Eyeshadow, Denim
The iconic Couleurs eyeshadow palette is rich in petroleum shades: 5 Couleurs Couture with a pearly finish recalling the colors of winter sea in a warmer variant – for the first time in history the eyeshadows are enriched with treating ingredients such as aloe vera, known for its soothing action, and pine oil, famous for its softening properties.
At the center of the palette, we can find a shimmering gold with the Maison logo that captures our attention and reminds us of the elegance of Dior (and its makeup).
