Blue eye makeup: it's not just for '80s pop stars and tweens anymore. (Flashbacks, anyone?) From bright turquoises to frosty ice blues, the bold hue is making a major comeback this spring — in ways that are totally wearable! (Pinky promise.)

Not sure how to tackle the tricky color? Check out five of our favorite looks recently spotted on the red carpet, below. (Bonus: We've got the intel on the exact shades for a few!)

Olivia Wilde's super-saturated style:

Last night at the launch party for her latest Marie Claire cover, Olivia Wilde swept her lids with a punchy blue shade, then picked a slightly darker indigo to line her lower lashes. Have light eyes, too? Make them pop with Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in "Abyss" ($19 at UrbanDecay.com).

Jessica Alba's teal-lined lids:

Jessica Alba went for a less noticeable — but still striking — take on the trend at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. Her exact shade? Avon's Glimmersticks in "Aqua Flash" ($7 at Avon.com). Just line the upper lash line, and voila!

Selena Gomez bright lower lashes:

On the flip-side (literally), Selena Gomez also picked a standout teal shade for the Kids' Choice Awards, but instead illuminated her lower lashes. Get a similar effect using Shu Uemura's Unmask Palette Blue eye shadow ($65 at ShuUemura.com). The palette comes with four other spring-perfect shades like lavender, yellow, and a blendable sand.

Ashley Benson vibrant turquoise:

Helloooo blue eyes! During her Spring Breakers press junket at SXSW, Ashley Benson stepped out wearing Nars' Eye Shadow in Outremer ($24 at Sephora.com) with Chanel's Le Crayon Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Jade ($28 at Chanel.com) traced along her waterline.

Carly Rae Jepsen's icy look:

To create Jepsen's frosty blue look at the Grammys, makeup artist Tina Turnbow blended three Lancome Color Design Infinité 24H Eye Shadows ($24.50 at Lancome-USA.com) together: "Forever Noir" with "Boundless Blue" along the lid, and "Unlimited Silver" along the inner corners of the eye and under the bottom lashline.
