How to create this '90s-inspired blue eye

One benefit of fall's shorter days: Nights are longer, leaving more hours to wear the jewel-toned evening makeup of the season. For this blue eye look, makeup artist Kate Synnott borrowed from a fashion icon. "The reference was an iconic pic of Kate Moss with a petrol-blue smoky eye," she says. "I think we are all still so inspired by the '90s. You'll see this trend reappear a lot and infiltrate catwalks at Fashion Week again and again."

Skin

To give skin a flawless finish, Synnott used Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation along with Giorgio Armani Beauty Fluid Sheer Ultra-Light Glowing Fluid for radiance. Lancöme Effacernes Concealer provided extra coverage where needed, while Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate in Intensity 0.5 helped contour and define cheeks.

Eyes

Synnott brushed brows upward with Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil and Gel. Next, she used Pat McGrath Labs PermaGel Ultra Glide Eye Pencil in Blitz Blue, a pearlescent deep blue, close to the lash line. On lids, she applied Blitz Blue and Astral White from Pat McGrath Labs Mothership I: Subliminal Palette.

Lips

For a soft, muted hue, Synnott chose Pat McGrath LuxeTrance lipstick in Lust Angeles—a fitting '90s nude in line with the look's inspiration.
