how are you all doing today? I haven’t been getting much sleep lately, which means I’m staying in bed more than I should in the mornings and when I wake up I need to rush to get ready! So, I’ve been wearing some quick and simple looks like the one below.
It was a bit too simple and natural for my tastes, so I added some blue liner to spice things up. I also think the cool blue liner is a nice contrast to the rest of the shades, which are warmer. What do you think?
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- Sleek Original eyeshadow palette (pale yellow, copperish and bronze shades)
- Barry M Intense Eyeliner Pen in Kingfisher Blue
- Pupa black pencil liner
- L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion mascara
- Apply Urban Decay Primer Potion all over lid as a base.
- Sweep a copperish shade (I used the one in Sleek Original palette) on the lid and crease.
- Apply a bronze shade (I used the one in the Sleek Original palette) in the inner half of the eye, just above the copperish shade.
- Sweep a pale yellow shade (I used the one in the Sleek Original palette) on the browbone to highlight.
- Line your upper lid and your lower lashline with a blue liner (I used Barry M Intense Eyeliner pen in Kingfisher Blue).
- Apply a black pencil liner on the waterline.
- Finish off with mascara.
