The beauty buzz is… navy rules for Spring! Incorporate this fresh, sexy shade into your look for a welcome change from your classic black and brown.
Navy mascara creates a cool and velvety look that is irresistible; think fresh spring evenings with a starlit sky. Framing your eyes with a fringe of navy blue makes all the nuances of your eye colour glitter, sparkle and shine like the heavens. Not ready for all-out blue? Try your usual brown or black mascara and then apply a second coat of navy to only the tips or the outer lashes.
A sexy cat eye is the hottest look for a cool spring. We suggest you use a navy pencil to line and smudge all around your eye, then finish it off with a deep black feline tip.

There's a new smoky in town
The shimmery navy smoky eye is hot right now and no wonder… it is both dramatically sexy and pretty. This alluring combination is just right for Spring, Summer and beyond! What is so appealing about the navy smoky eye is, depending on how heavily you apply the products, it can easily go from daytime to evening and always look right. It works well for every eye colour. Hazel and blue eyes really pop. On green eyes, the combo is as mesmerizing as ocean waves. Brown-eyed beauties can rejoice, as the contrast between warm brown and cool navy is sparkling and stellar.
Ever wonder why your smoky eye never looks quite as clean and sexy as the ones you see in magazines? There is a trick that photo editors use: the whites of the eye are touched-up to appear whiter and brighter. Using navy, coupled with deep cobalt or sapphire has an added benefit of naturally making the whites of your eyes appear whiter and brighter. It's like a touch of Photoshop in your makeup bag! So get ready, get set and go for navy, the new smoky eye!
To create the new navy smoky eye, be sure to follow our simple steps:
- Apply primer to eyelids for an even application and the longest wear.
- Apply a rich cobalt or sapphire of eyeshadow on your eyelid up to browbone. Blend well.
- Line your upper and lower lashlines with a soft navy pencil and gently smudge. Hint: If you reapply the eyeshadow over the pencil it both smudges and softens the look.
- Apply mascara either in navy or use black on lashes and navy on tips.
To complete this fresh look for Spring, we suggest you pair it with a pale lip… from nude to rose or mauve.
