Eyeshadow in aquamarine: Gen Z loves this retro trend

Blue eye makeup is on the rise again and is enjoying a major revival thanks to bright aquamarine. According to Pinterest's 2024 Trend Report, searches for "Blue Eyeshadow Aesthetic" increased 65 percent, while millions of users on TikTok searched for the hashtags

Generation Z is particularly fond of the look of the late nineties and noughties. "Blue eyeshadow always reminds me of the '90s and early 2000s," explains Chanel makeup artist Anna Payne in an interview with British magazine Elle. Blue eyeshadow evokes memories of icons of bygone fashion eras: "I immediately think of Kate Moss and Britney Spears," says Payne. But the previous style of Paris Hilton (42), Christina Aguilera (43) and Rihanna (35) also serves as a great source of inspiration for the bright blue eye make-up.

But how do you wear blue eyeshadow in 2024? In recent years, the emphasis in beauty has clearly shifted towards a more natural look. That's why blue eyeshadow or eyeliner in the shade aquamarine is now an absolute eye-catcher, as it hits almost bare skin and is therefore even more in the foreground.

Aquamarine is a color that can appear subtle and yet striking - depending on the intensity with which it is applied, as shown in this make-up look by Lily-Rose Depp (24) on Instagram. To achieve the look, you should first apply a light foundation to smooth out imperfections and prepare the eyelids. The aquamarine eyeshadow can then be gently applied and blended to create a smooth transition.
