You already know shades of blue are having a fashion moment in Hollywood. Turns out, the color is having a beauty moment too.

Stars have been experimenting with various hues of blue liner and shadows on their lids, convincing us to try the trend before summer ends. If you have the blues too, crib one of these three beauty looks, depending on your experience level — and your bravery.

Rachel Bilson lined her lids with a dark (nearly navy) liner that popped against the sequins on her 3.1 Phillip Lim dress at the CW, CBS and Showtime Summer TCA party in L.A.

Also matching her eye makeup to her dress, Heidi Klum used allover shimmery shadow on top and underneath her lids, choosing several blue shades for extra emphasis. To top it off, she was sure to pack on the black mascara (and maybe even some falsies).

And then there’s Solange. It’s no surprise that the risk-taker who’s brought us beauty moments like this, went all the way swiping a strip of aqua liner above her crease, for a bright highlighter effect (a look debuted at the Michael Kors Spring 2013 runway show, according to our pals at Popsugar BEAUTY)

No, it’s not her first foray into blue makeup, but it’d definitely the most dramatic we’ve seen yet!

Tell us: Which level of blue eyeliner would you try?
