a serious case of the blues.

by ray siegel

It's official: blue is the new black. At least when it comes to eye makeup it is. Spring Breakers actress Ashley Benson wore the look at the premiere of her new film at SXSW and we got the exact steps from her makeup artist Nico Guilis. "With Ashley's sexy cool new brown hair I thought the makeup should really bring out those blue eyes and focus on her beautiful Jane Birkin-esque classic features." Go blue using the exact products Guilis used on Benson:

LINE IT:Nars Eyeshadow in Outremer, $24

"I wanted to give her a smokey eye with a "pop" of blue color. I lined the lash line with MAC black pencil and the went over it with Nars Outremer shadow and once again over the water line with Chanel's liner pencil in Jade."

BLUSH IT:MAC Blush in Pink Swoon, $21

"On the apples of the cheeks is Pink Swoon Blush by MAC for that healthy glow."

LIP IT:Nars Lipgloss in Chelsea Girls, $25

"On the lips I used Chelsea girls by Nars."
