Blue Blaze

It’s Friday!  In honour of the weekend, I thought I would break out the blue eyeshadow and present this fun look.  Hope you enjoy it!

Let’s start!

As always, prime your lids with an eyeshadow primer.  I used Benefit’s Stay Don’t Stray.  Other great primers are Urban Decay’s Primer Potion, MAC’s Paint Pots, or the new Maybelline Color Tattoos (there’s a great blue colour in the collection, which I don’t have, but it would be great for this tutorial).  Make sure that you apply the primer on both your lids and under your eyes and then of course blend!

In this tutorial I’m using all MAC colours, three of which are Pro colours (only available in Pro stores or online), however, I’m sure there are a tons of different dupes out there.

Using a light colour, like MAC’s Phloof!, apply this to under your eyebrows.

Using a wet condensed eyeshadow brush, apply an electric blue colour from the inside corners of your eyes to the middle.  The colour I used was MAC’s Electric Eel, which unless you apply it with a wet brush it goes on quite sheer; you have to really pack on the colour.

Using a colour that’s a few shades darker (like MAC’s Cobalt), apply this from the middle of your eyelid to the outer corners and blend it with the lighter colour.

Grabbing a dark purple shade (like MAC’s Indian Ink), apply this colour on the outer corners of your eyes, while blending all three together.  I also brought the purple up and “windshield wiped” across the crease.

Now that we got the eyelids done, create the same gradual effect on the lower lash line, bringing the brighter blue down over the inner tear ducts of your eyes.

Using a black eyeliner (I used a Joe Fresh Retractable Eyeliner in black) line your waterline and tightline.

Next, using a black liquid liner (like MAC’s Liquid Eye Liner in Boot Black), line your upper lash line, adding a wing at the ends.

Making sure that you curl and apply some mascara to your lashes, grab some false eyelashes and apply them to your eyes.  I wouldn’t really recommend heavy eyelashes for this look, because the eyes are so bold we don’t want to overdo it with the fake lashes; they should be subtle but noticeable.

Finally, apply some concealer to under your eyes just in case there was some fall out and to freshen up the look, and you are done!

Hope you enjoyed this look!  Have a great weekend!
