Lady Gaga doesn’t follow the patterns, she starts them — so if you think back to stuff like her “Just Dance” lightning bolt look or three-inch-long silver lashes from the 2019 Met Gala, it’s obvious that she’s especially good at looking beyond the box when it comes to eye makeup, or rather in her case, eye fashion. Her newest look is a testament to that, and continuing to ride her blue-themed wave, Lady Gaga’s blue eyeshadow is a fresh star-beauty idea bound to inspire a new trend.
An Aug. 24 Gaga Instagram post showed the singer and the star sporting a bright eye-shadow design. Yet that was not the preconceived idea of obnoxiously light blue eyeshadow; instead, in the most unlikely of areas, this was an exquisite touch of blue.
Gaga’s option of three eyeshadows is a significant deviation from the long-running monochrome theme in season. And no one put it more perfectly than Sarah Tanno, a celebrity makeup artist and Haus Laboratories’ Global Artistry Director (Gaga’s own cosmetics line)—she even coined some new terminology for the look commenting on the photo, “You triple axeled that eyeshadow, lol” with some fitting emojis. Here’s hoping there will be more stars beginning to “triple axel” their own eyeshadow and turning this into a cool, triple-colored trend.
