I’ve been playing with more colours I wouldn’t ordinarily wear. On a normal day I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing blue eyeshadow but I really fancied it today. I might wear this look more often. I really loved it.
I started by mixing a cornflower blue and a matte white shadow to come up with a powdery shade and put that all over the lid, a little above the crease and brought it out towards the brow. I then put a little Nars Himalayas along the brow bone and along the inner corner to brighten things up a little.
I lined the upper and lower lash lines with MAC Espresso liner and smoothed them out with a fine angled brush. Using the same brush I mixed some of the cornflower blue and a metallic plum brown colour then ran it along the lower lash line before packing on loads of mascara.
For the cheeks I blended a crimson and a pastel pink powder blush extending it all the way up through the temples. On my lips I started with a MyFace Fair Nude lipliner and went over it with a pink brown long wear lip stain. On the fullest part of my lips I rubbed in some pearlised pink lipstick to lift things a little.
My base was a combo of MAC Face & Body, Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage and Jane Iredale Mineral Powder.
