Wearable Blue Eyeshadow!


Hello Everyone!

I have recently been a little bit braver with incorporating colour into my eye looks. I normally stick to neutrals but I just felt like I needed to step out of my comfort zone and go for colour. I wanted to create a look that was very wearable and easy to achieve. Lets get into it then...

I started my adventure into colour by applying my Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Everlasting Navy onto the outer half of my eye. I then blended it with a fluffy No 7 brush. 

After that I took Naked Lunch from MAC and placed it on the inner half of my eye, connecting it to the colour tattoo. 

Then I decided that I wanted to make the navy blue a bit more vibrant so I used Skinny Dip from my Too Faced Insurance Policy palette. I just used a little bit at a time over the colour tattoo and blended before adding some more. I repeated these steps until I was happy with the intensity of the blue.


After that I took Wedge from MAC and blended it through my crease as a transition colour. Then I ran some of the colour tattoo along my lower lash line, concentrating it on the outer half and then did the same with Skinny Dip eyeshadow. I made my lower lash line colour a lot more intense than the colour on my lid. I used Accesorize Silk Baked Eyeshadow in Lily to highlight my inner corner and brow bone. To finish off the look I ran my L'oreal super liner along my top lash line, added a few coats of Maybelline's One by One mascara to my lashes and lined my water line with Master Drama Khol eyeliner again by Maybelline.

And that's it! Very simple but it definitely adds something a bit different to your look. Thank you for reading and I hope some of you who are a bit scared of colour (like me!!) try this look out.
