Bluer than blue
I'm into blue lately, light blues in particular. It's a peaceful, non-intrusive color that can easily be matched with other colors. For this look, I used light blue, an electric royal blue, taupe, and silver eyeshadows. It's a bit loud, but still wearable!
I used my Dollface 88-color palette since I haven't been giving it any love lately. I love Urban Decay, but I also love the choices available in my Dollface palette. With the right primer, the eyeshadows look a lot better.
I made a tutorial for those who are interested in copping this look!
Step 1: Do the ground work. Prime your face with concealer, foundation, eyebrow powder, and eyeshadow primer. I used the Revon Naturals concealer, Shiseiso Supplist foundation, In2It brow powder, and Urban Decay Primer Potion.
Step 2: Pat light blue eyeshadow on the inner half of your lid.
Step 3: Pat a darker blue eyeshadow on the outer half. Make sure that both shadows are well blended.
Step 4: Apply a shimmery or matte taupe on your crease. Blend it in with the colors and ever so subtly wing it out. I use a slightly pointed domed brush to do this. The taupe tones down the bright blues! If you want something smokier, gray or black eyeshadow are also good crease colors.
Step 5: Apple sheer silver eyeshadow on top of the light blue one. This brightens your eyes and gives the illusion of a deeper crease.
Step 6: Apply mascara and eyeliner. I used Clinique High Impact Mascara and MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack. Finished product -
Step 7: Do the rest of the face. To contour, I used MAC Cheek and Cheerful. For a slight blush, Shu Uemura Glow On in Amber. For my lips, I used NYX Lips lipstick in Love Angel. It's a gorgeous milky pink!
