Beauty gurus, makeup artists have been trying their hand at one of this season’s top trends: washed denim makeup. Inspired by the texture and color of denim fabric, they apply eyeshadows in shades in hues that are as close as possible to the shade of denim. A faded blue so wearable it matches their favorite pair of blue jeans and denim fits. The denim eyeshadow trend is a refreshing take on blue eyeshadow, offering a more subtle and wearable option to bolder cobalt or navy hues. Instead of an intense bright blue color, the denim eyeshadow trend focuses on a washed-out, almost grungy effect reminiscent of faded denim jeans. This creates a laid back effortless vibe perfect for everyday wear or a casual night out.
