Looks: Feeling Blue

Hello everyone,

today I want to show you a simple and quick look I did last week with blue eyeshadow. The look turned out pretty icy and it’s probably more suited in winter than spring, but I still liked it a lot. And please excuse my expression in the photo. I’ve had a hectic couple of weeks and didn’t get much sleep, something I plan to catch up on this weekend. I hope your plans are more exciting than mine. Have you got anything nice planned?

Here’s the look, enjoy!

Products used:
Senna Totally Transforming Eyeshadow Primer
– Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
– Bottega Verde My Box Palette (pale blue and pale green)
Sleek I-Divine Chaos Eyeshadow Palette (matte bright blue)
Sleek Curious eyeshadow palette (white)
– Wet n Wild Kajal & Eyeliner in white
– Maybelline Volum’ Express Cat Eyes mascara
YSL Teint Singulier Sheer Powdercreme Veil Foundation
Max Factor Erace Concealer
– Pupa Lumynis Baked Blush #1 from Plastic Shine Spring 2009 (white and pink stripes).
Senna Spot Lites Highlighting Pencil
Senna Pearl Glow Lip Lacquer in Sunkiss

Directions:
– Apply an eyeshadow primer (I used Senna Totally Transforming Eyeshadow Primer) all over the lid to create a base for the shades to adhere to and last longer.
– Apply Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy (if you don’t have, you can skip this step) on the lid to make the colors really pop.
– Apply an pale, icy blue shade (I used the one in the Bottega Verde My Box Palette) all over the lid.
– Next, apply a purplish blue shade (I used Fyrinnae’s Arcane Eyeshadow in Faerie Glamour) on the outer corner of the eyes and crease area.
– Darken the outer V with a matte, bright blue shade (I used the one in the Sleek Chaos palette). Apply the same shade on the lower lashline too.
– Highlight the browbone and the inner corners of the eyes with a white shade (I used the one in the Sleek Curious palette).
– Apply a very soft and pale green shade (I used the one in Bottega Verde My Box Palette) on the inner crease of the eye and blend well (you can barely see it photos, but it’s there and it’s very pretty in real life).
– Line your waterline with a white eyeliner (I used Wet n Wild Kajal & Eyeliner in white) and apply mascara.
– On your face, apply concealer (I used Max Factor Erace Concealer) to cover dark circles and any other imperfection you may have, and then your usual foundation (I used YSL Teint Singulier Sheer Powdercreme Veil Foundation in no.5).
– Apply a pink blush on your cheeks (I used Pupa Lumynis Baked Blush #1 from Plastic Shine Spring 2009) and highlight the cheekbones, middle of the nose and chin with a subtle white highlighter (I used Senna Spot Lites Highlighting Pencil).
– Apply a pink lipgloss (I used Senna Pearl Glow Lip Lacquer in Sunkiss) and you’re done.

    Anastacia, thanks. I like how soft and light it is. It wasn’t planned lol but it looks really nice. :)

    Simone, thanks. It wasn’t my intention to make it so wintery, it just turned out that way but I like it. And you’re right, we should use whatever colors we want, whenever we want. :)

    I really love this look though it might be inadequate for the sunny weather outside. Honestly, I don’t understand who dictates us colours for special season… That’s rubbish if you ask me. Besides, it inspires me to do a blue eye make up again. I always neglect this colour. Don’t ask me why. I’m silly. *blabbie blab* Anyways, you always look gorgeous, dear! I think you don’t have to apologize for your expression when you’re exhausted.

    Mylanqolia, thank you and you’re right. All these stupid rules about makeup are just silly. Makeup is an art and we should wear what we like and feel comfortable with. :) I love blue eyeshadows but I go through stages of neglecting it as well. Then, all of a sudden I start using it again for a while before forgetting all about it again lol.
