We love Janelle Monae for her vintage rockabilly look. She always finds a way to give it a modern twist that’s super trendy–And she’s always impeccably dressed, might I add. So much of the industry looks to her to see what the next big trends will be, and I think we may have found it in her electric blue eyeliner! Much like her vintage-modern style, Janelle has taken your hum-drum black cat eye, and gave it a jolt! Since we are all about bold, bright, and neon color this season, this shade definitely has our full attention!

To try this look for yourself this summer, we recommend first, using a neutral shadow all over the lid. The statement is the liner, not the whole eye, remember. Next, line the eye with a thick line (We want the color to stand out!). Try our Studio Cream Eyeliner in Teal Tease for a lighter shade, or our Essential Smudge Pot in Ocean Bound, for something darker, applied with our Studio Small Angled Brush for an easy, controlled line. You can also wet the brush and use our Mineral Eyeshadow in Dreamy for a similar look. Prefer to use something all in one? We recommend our Studio Eyeliner & Shadow Stick in Midnight/Blue, our Mineral Eyeliner in Midnight, our Essential Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in Teal, or our Essential Liquid Eyeliner in Midnight.

What’s your it-color this summer?
