Today’s look is with one of this year’s spring trend, blue eyeshadow. I think colorful eyeshadows, especially blue, are kind of hard to apply because they might look messy and ruin your makeup. In my opinion, to make it easy to apply and also look good you have to mix it with other colours.
In this look I mixed the blue eyeshadow with a metallic grey, that I applied in the middle of the eyelid.
- Start by applying an eyeshadow primer. I used Paint Pot in Soft Ochre by MAC.
- Take a matte blue eyeshadow and start applying it on the inner and outer corner of the eyelids. Connect the corners on your crease, leaving the middle part of the eyelid empty.
- Try to be very precise with the colour on the crease because you want to create your eye shape with the eyeshadow. Blend the edges using a small blending brush, but not too much. If you blend the blue eyeshadow too much it will look more like a bruise and it will loose its pigment.
- Apply a metallic silver eyeshadow in the middle of the eyelids. Wet your brush with thermal water or makeup fixing spray to get the most of the pigment.
- If you think that the blue eyeshadow has lost its intensity, apply a small amount in those areas. Make sure to blend these two eyeshadows, you don’t want them to look harsh.
- Repeat the same steps for the lower lids, if you want.
- Finish the look with black eyeliner & mascara.
I used a nude lipstick and I added a little bit of shimmery pigment in the center of the lips.
