Cobalt Blue for Fall

The temperature will soon be dropping if it hasn’t already and one of my favorite seasonal colors of choice is cobalt blue. This electric color popped up on several fall runways- Stella McCartney, Tibi, and Haider Ackermann. It’s definitely one of the major color trends for fall and winter in both beauty and fashion.

Warm shades like eggplant, burnt orange, and oxblood are what we typically wear this season but, adding a electrifying color like cobalt blue will surely add a pop of color to your makeup look. It’s a great color alternative to have in your makeup bag.

Check out some of my favorite cobalt-hued picks below!

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Indigo- If you’re a liquid eyeliner fan like myself, try this electric hue. Stila’s liquid liner glides on with ease and it’s waterproof so it won’t smudge or run.

Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture Rouge Nail Polish in No.18 Bleu Majorelle- If you’re afraid to try an intense shade on your face, then the next best place is your nails. Yves Saint Laurent makes some great nail polishes and I’m loving the brand’s cool blue lacquers from the F/W collection like indigo and turquoise blue polishes.

Nars Eyeshadow in Outremer- For fall, electric blue lids are the way to go! Make sure to apply a primer first to keep the color in place for all day wear.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in RX- Sport blue lips if you dare! Yea it’s a bit much for everyday wear but, if you want to try it, OCC’s Lip Tar in RX can make for a great lip color this Halloween.
