Blue Smoky eye(Source: Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images North America) A dark smoky eye is a great go-to look for pretty much any evening occasion. But if your palette of gray, kohl and silver is a tad overused, perhaps it's time to grace your lids with a different smoky haze. Midnight blue shadow is an alternative to the classic look without veering too far off course. 

The darker hues keep in line with the shaded style, while the touch of blue adds an element of surprise and personality to the mix. Not to mention it makes peepers of any color pop. Check out the celebs who have caught on to the trend.

Michelle Dockery framed her dark brown eyes with a shade of navy on both the upper and lower lids.
