I’m one of those beauty blogger’s that don’t explore bold and bright eye makeup all that much. Even when I love the look of them on others, I can never quite jump on the wagon and try it on myself. When I researched online about the variations of blue eye makeup looks, I was surprised that they looked nice on most skin tones. Continue reading to see how I create this blue eye makeup trend with my version of a blue smokey eye look.
To begin with, I prime my face and eye lids with *Mikatvonk Anti Wrinkle Primer, which will help keep my makeup on longer, but also keep my skin hydrated all day. I follow on with *Mikatvonk Cover Max Hydrating Foundation in Skin Beige, which is a lightweight fluid foundation. A full review of these Mikatvonk makeup will be up on my blog soon. Once foundation has sunk into my skin, I brushed my thick brows and used *Rimmel brow this way 3-in-1 ultra soft powder dark brown to tint my brows and shape them accordingly.
Moving on to my eye lid, I applied a base eyeshadow shade in conundrum (warm brown matte) from Colour Pop. Then onto the crease, I used eyeshadow shade cannonball (burnt orange matte) from Colour Pop to add a bit of dimension. I wanted to line my top eye lid, as well as my bottom lash with this *Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer Deep Ocean (deep navy). I found when using this pen to be easy, considering how terrible I am at lining my eye lids. I layered this shade with *Rimmel Magnif’Eyes Kohl Kajal Dark Side of Blue. Using a crease brush from Zoeva, I slowly blended these two blue shades towards my crease line. To deepen the blue shade, I finished off with a layer of eyeshadow shade in two piece (rich navy satin) from Colour Pop towards the crease line.
I have never used coloured mascara other than black or black-brown, but to use blue mascara peaked my interest. I applied one coat of *Katy PerryxCovergirl Katy Kat Eye Perry Blue Mascara to both my top and lower lashes, which appeared more navy blue than a bright blue shade. My lashes looked lengthened, defined, however, there was no volume seen, but there was also a mild chemical scent to the mascara, which I was concerned about possibly irritating my eyes, which didn’t after all.
To finish my overall makeup look, I applied my favourite everyday blush shade in Blushing Rose from E.L.F Cosmetics and a lipstick in shade Taupe (muted reddish-brown matte) from MAC Cosmetics. This eye makeup look would look lovely for a nice evening event, as it wouldn’t be something I think I could pull off wearing during the day. I found it easy to create and even a novice could re-create this eye makeup.
