Blue liner: Reaching that middle ground

If you needed some help getting around these misconceptions, Bar Refaeli showed us all how to find a workable middle ground between all-out Ke$ha-land and moderate, plain-jane sophistication. The model showed up on the red carpet recently wearing blue eyeliner on just her lower lash line, with shimmery rose gold shadow swept all over her otherwise liner-free lid.

The liner-on-the-bottom move is a classic example of how you can flaunt just a hint of color without going overboard with an all-over smoky eye. You can even try experimenting with mis-matched liners, if only to vary things up a bit.

If blue liner just isn't your thing, see what the subtlety of some blue blinc Mascara can do for you. The blue will brighten the whites of your eyes without appearing overly obvious, and the product is still packed with the incredible water-resistant tubing properties of the classic blinc formula.
