Looks: Blue Wine

blue wine 01

Blue eyeshadows are beautiful, but they can be hard to wear without looking crazy or weird. Here’s a wearable way to rock them. Of course, you can use this technique with any other bright colour you want. It will provide a pop of colour to your look that’s not, however, over-the-top.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time to take step-by-step photos, but I hope you will enjoy this look anyway. And if you have any other tips on how to rock blue eyeshadows, share them in the comments!

Without further ado, here are the products I used:

Products used:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette in Extravagant Gold
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Binge
Layla Sparkle Eyeshadow in n.13
Senna Voluptulash Mascara
YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit
Benefit Coralista Blush
Senna Lip Lacquer in Blush Wine

EYES
1. Prep your eyelids with a good eyeshadow base. My favourite is too Faced Shadow Insurance. It will ensure that your makeup will stay put for hours.
2. Pat a gold shade (I used the one in the Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette in Extravagant Gold) on your lids.
3. Apply a soft coppery brown shade (I used the one in the Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette in Extravagant Gold) on the inner and other parts of your lids. Blend out the edges gently.
4. Sweep a medium brown shade (I used the one in the Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette in Extravagant Gold) on your crease. Blend.
5. Highlight your browbone with a pearly cream beige shade (I used the one in the Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette in Extravagant Gold).
6. Line your upper lashline and your waterline with a dark blue pencil eyeliner (I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Binge). Apply it on your lower lashline as well. It will help the eyeshadow we’ll be applying next stay put.
7. Sweep a bright, medium blue eyeshadow shade (I used Layla Sparkle Eyeshadow in n.13) on your lower lashline.
8. Apply mascara.

FACE & LIPS
1. Apply foundation and concealer.
2. Sweep a coral blush (I used Benefit Coralista Blush) on the apples of your cheeks.
3. Apply a shimmery and semi-opaque rose lipgloss shade with peachy undertones (I used Senna Lip Lacquer in Blush Wine) on your lips.

      Beate, I’m glad you like it, and thank you for your feedback. That will be my new year’s resolution, to use an eyelash curler more often. :)

    Oh I looove that blue liner! I used to wear a similar one from Lancôme & you just inspired me to start using it again but this time on my lower lash line! Coralista looks super pretty on you too! In fact this is a real pretty day look! :)

      Icaria, thank you! That’s one of my favourite eyeliners, it is so bright. I love to add a pop of colour on the lower lashline. It’s fun without being over-the-top.
