InStyle's editorial guidelines Published on November 5, 2012 @ 03:17PM Pin Share Tweet Email Photo: Getty Images; Landov Blue eye shadow certainly makes a statement, but it can be one of the most challenging makeup hues to wear. The color commands attention, but one wrong brush stroke can result in a tacky '80s aesthetic. Recently, Mandy Moore and Skyfall Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe have given us major holiday beauty inspiration with their two different takes on the trend! Marlohe's bold cobalt eye puts a fun twist on the traditional smoky look and is perfect for a night out. The actress concentrated most of the blue shadow on the inner corners, but if you want to elongate your eye, blend the shade into the crease for a winged-out effect. Looking for a less extreme option? Try Moore's aqua eyeliner interpretation instead! When worn just along the lower lash line, the shade is subtle enough for daytime wear, and is a non-intimidating way for color novices to ease into the world of bold makeup. Try your hand at the look by dipping a fine-tipped shadow brush into your favorite blue, or pick up a bright azure liner. Our favorite? Urban Decay's version in Deviant ($19; urbandecay.com).
