Who would've thought that blue eyeshadow could look so smouldering and sexy? Make-up artists at Gucci's spring/summer show were quick to dispel its stuck-in-the-80s tacky status by dusting this icy azure shade over the whole eye with thick black liner and lashings of mascara for a glamorous edge. Gorge!

Gemma Arterton proves that the blue trend can be switched to subtle - it's just a matter of controlling the colour! By stopping the shade at the lids, and keeping the rest of her complexion walk-in-the-park fresh, Gemma manages to pull off a winning combination that makes the trend look so wearable. Are you ready to copy?

Get The Look:
1. Once you've applied your base, line the upper and lower lash lines with a black kohl pencil like BADgal Waterproof Eye Pencil, £13.50 by Benefit. For extra definition, line the inner rims too.

2. Dust on Color Minerals Eye Shadow in Topaz Shimmer by L'Oreal Paris, £7.82 at over the entire eyelid and blend some colour into the inner and outer corners of the eye.

3. Finger-blend a creamy rosy blush like Stain Flush & Gloss, £21.53, by Jemma Kidd at over the apples of your cheeks (the fleshiest part that sticks out when you smile).

4. Finish off with two coats of black mascara. We like L'Extreme in Black, £19.50, by Lancome which gives lashes a full-on fake-lash effect.
