EOTD #13 Blue sky eye-makeup look

Today's EOTD was inspired by a friend on a beauty forum who always post beautiful colourful EOTDs. I usually don't do a lot of colourful EOTDs and when I do it's mostly a colour that's not too bright or I only use a pop of colour.

However since I was inspired I decided to do a blue eye makeup look. I don't tend to use blue a lot so this is definitely different to my usual makeup look.

As you can see it is quite bright and out there but since I have heavily hooded eyes when my eyes are open it actually looks less out there.

Anyway if you would like to recreate this look you can follow these steps:

  1. Apply eye primer all over eyelid up to the brow bone and also under the eyes. This helps the eyeshadow to stick and last longer.
  2. The main eyeshadow I used for this look was MAC Heavenly Creatures Mineralized eyeshadow in the colour Sky as pictured below. I did not blend the colours from this eyeshadow but applied the 2 blues separately.
  3. MAC Heavenly Creatures Mineralized eyeshadow - Sky
  4. Apply the bright sky blue from the Sky mineralized eyeshadow all over the lid. Since I have hooded eyes, I blended this slightly higher so it is visible when my eyes are open. 
  5. Apply the darker blue colour from the same eyeshadow all over the crease and blend. 
  6. I applied MAC Shimmermoss eyeshadow in the inner third and inner corner of the eyes.
  7. Under the lower lash line apply the dark blue colour on the outer two thirds and apply MAC Shimmermoss on the inner thirds.
  8. To highlight the brow bone, I applied Urban Decay Sin eyeshadow from the Naked Palette.
  9. Make sure that you blend the colours quite well so that it transitions beautifully.
  10. I applied a thin line of black eyeliner on the upper lash line very closely to the lash. I used Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner.
  11. Because it's such a colourful dramatic look I decided to use false lashes to enhance my lashes. The lash that I used was Red Cherry lashes #110.
And that's it. For the face I used Lancome Teint Visionnaire Foundation and I used MUA Bronzed perfection bronzer to contour the face. I didn't want to do too much on the face since the eyeshadow is quite dramatic. I also left my lips bare or you could apply a nude lipstick so that the eye is the main attraction.

Hope you like this look :)
