Blue Eye Makeup Trend at the 2008 VMAs

Trend Alert: Blue Eye Accents at the 2008 VMAs

Whether it be an icy shadow or a dark navy liner, one thing is for sure — blue was cool at last night's VMAs. I love how Bar Refaeli, Stephanie Pratt, and Pink went for frosty versions to bring brightness to their eyes. Rihanna and Ashlee Simpson opted for a more smoky edge, while Christina Aguilera added her own unique (as usual) take on the trend. Do you think you'll be wearing any of these blue-hued looks?

Pink and Rihanna looked really beautiful... To bad Christina and Bar doesn`t, lol.

I myself like Stephanie's. I have pale skin and blueish gray eyes, so i find that pale blue doesnt suit me too well. I think i'll try navy.

Love some blues..charcoal-smokey blues, turquoise/teals (think Nars Cleo) and those good old-school YSL deep matte purple-blues, (MUFE makes one, its awesome.) I have blue eyes but..barely, they are almost grey, I don't tend to like light frosty blues, I like deep ones as accents/smoke/liners.

and the rags always told us blue-eyed's to stay away from that frosty blue eye shadow like the plague lol niche, that is a great idea, I never had anyone ask how to tame this dramatic look down for day- I will have to try this on someone !! My personal fave-look for blue eyes is a nice golden-taupe shadow, dark forest green liner(inbetween the lashes only) and a navy blue mascara, curl lashes slightly. You can NEVER go wrong with a Navy Blue mascara for a blue-eyed girl! Never! :)

Love Christina's look...sooo Barbarella, 60's, but false lashes are so freakin' annoying to put on!

I have medium blue eyes, so navy looks really nice but the light blue can be very tricky. I think with this inspiration I'll be digging out my navy liner again soon!

Note to all: NONE of these ladies has brown eyes! Blue liner does NOT look good on brown eyes.

Can anyone recommend a blue eyeliner/shadow brand? I use MAC, but I am interested to see which brands other makeup divas are sporting/recommending.

I like all the looks for different reasons. Rhianna and Christina A are my favs (i still rock navy blue liner)

I've always liked this look, but you've gotta have the right coloring to pull it off. I'd say these girls here all did it up nice! :)

I like navy blue where it's not so bright. I must say I love Rihanna's eyes, beautiful!

Maybe navy. My eyes are too blue to wear the lighter blues...

I really like the navy stuff. I'm not too into powdery or icy blues. They just look blah on me.

Rihanna's look is amazing! I also like Christina's look, it's really daring and I think it looks good on her, esp. with the new bangs :D

I had a make-up artist show me a similar look. To make it more appropriate for everyday, he used pale pink eye shadow with the light blue liner and lots of mascara.

I love a good iridescent turquoise or peacock-blue liner.
