Marc By Marc Jacobs' Spring 2014 Makeup Is All About Electric Blue Eyeshadow (VIDEO, PHOTO)

The verdict is still out among the HuffPost Style editors on whether blue eyeshadow should be banned for good. However, makeup artist Dick Page presented convincing evidence at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2014 runway show.

When we stepped inside the hair and makeup tent backstage, our eyes were immediately drawn to what Page described as the "bold block of color." The highly-pigmented eyeshadow was created by first applying Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Ice from lid to crease. Then the electric blue Curacao shade from the limited-edition Eye Color Bar palette was brushed on top in a windshield washing motion to follow the natural shape of the eye and add more depth.

With such a strong eye makeup, the rest of the face was kept minimal using Sheer and Perfect Foundation and Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment.

Has Marc Jacobs convinced you that blue eyeshadow is cool?
