Into the Blue10:22
I'm starting to realize that I love my neutral and peachy gold shades too much. To the point where I neglect a lot of other shades in my eyeshadow palettes. So, I decided to make more colorful makeups with the eyeshadow shades that are not my usual choice. Don't get me wrong, I'll still use a lot of violet, gold and peach, just combined with different shades. Does that happen to you too? I seem to only use certain shades from my palettes. Today is about blue silver combination, which is not my usual choice of color, since I find those make me look very cool toned and somewhat dark :).
I started by applying blue matte shadow on the lid, leaving out the outer fourth. I added light warm matte brown in the crease and darkened the corners of the crease with dark chocolate brown matte shade.
Then I used shimmery dark silver shade and darkened outer corners. I used a silver blue shimmery shade and put it over the matte blue shade with my finger. I used bright blue as a base before to make this blue stand out more. Then I used the same matte blue at the center of the lower lid and I used the two matte brown shades in the outer third of lower lid.
I went over brown matte shades with shimmery dark silver shade. I also went over blue matte shade with the silver blue shimmery shade and brought it near the inner corner of the eye. In the inner corner of the eye I used matte white shade as a base and then I went over it with light champagne white shimmery shade. This time I skipped the eyeliner and instead used black matte eye shadow as an eyeliner. I did winged it out a little, since you know I really like that look.
Finished with lots of mascara. After that I cleaned up the edges with concealer to make it look more sharpened and winged out.
I did my usual foundation and concealer routine. I also used taupe shade to contour around my outer edges of the face and used champagne colored highlighter. I didn't wanted to put on too much blush, so I used a very light hand with shimmery peachy blush. As for the lips, I used pink based nude lipstick. Since the eyes are so bold, the rest of the face makeup is very neutral and simple.
