I hope you’re all well! As I am uploading this post, I’m currently away in Poland, but I couldn’t leave my blog with no uploads all week, so I decided to be super organised for once & plan ahead. I know, I’m amazed with myself too.
Today I want to share with you another makeup look featuring some pretty blue eyeshadow – a little out of my comfort zone, but I actually ended up really liking the outcome! I find it fun sometimes to wear something a little different. If you want to see how I achieved this look, just keep reading!
Step One – Base
To prep the skin, I first went in with the L’oreal Infallible primer (£8.99). I’ve recently fallen back in love with this one. It gives me a smooth base & helps with pores. I also added some of the Revolution Superfruit Primer/Serum (£9.99) for a bit of moisture. I used some of the Smashbox Colour Correcting Stick in ‘Look Less Tired Light’ (£18) under my eyes to cover up some of the darkness. I then went in with the Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation (£29.50) on a Superdrug Beauty Sponge.
Step Two – Eyes
As usual, I filled in my eyebrows using the Benefit Brow Zings palette (£27). I applied Collection Lasting Perfecting Concealer (£4.19) all over my eyelids to prep them for eyeshadow. I then dipped into the Makeup Revolution x Soph Extra Spice palette (£10) & applied the light blue shimmer shade ‘Infinity’ all over the lid with my finger. Once I had packed on a lot of colour, I went into the NYX In Your Element Wind palette ($30). I took shade the light blue shade (the top left hand corner) & applied it onto the outer portion of my eyelid with a Morphe s27 brush. I applied quite a lot of this shade. Then I took a smaller brush – a Morphe s12 and applied a deep navy blue shade (second to the right on the bottom row) and applied this to the outer corner of my eyelids, ensuring all the shades blended nicely together. Once I was happy with the blending I added more of the Revolution shade ‘Infinity’ with my finger to intensify the shimmer. To finish the eyes, I curled my lashes before applying the YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara (£26).
Step Three – Finishing
I applied the Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer (£24) under my eyes, on my chin & around my nose using a Morphe s4 brush. I set my under eye area using Too Faced Born This Way powder (£20) with a Real Techniques contour brush. I set the rest of my face with Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder (£3.99) with a fluffy brush. I then went into the Zoeva Contour Spectrum palette (£18) & applied the cool toned contour shade to carve out my cheek bones using a Morphe s13 brush. Then with the same brush, I added some of the warmer bronze shade around my face. Next I used the Wet n Wild blush brush to apply Clinique Cheek Pop in the shade ‘Ginger Pop’ (£17). To highlight I took the Revolution x Soph highlight palette (£8) and applied the lilac highlight with a Morphe s26 brush. To complete the look I applied NYX Suede Matte Lipstick in the shade ‘Rose The Day’ (£8).
& That’s everything! It’s actually a super simple look but I like the end results. What do you think? Would you wear something similar? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
