One of my hugest passions is makeup, I consider it an artistic medium and love creating new looks to express myself. I thought that I would share my love of make-up with all of you Whyvillians today with a look inspired by bluebirds. It is a somewhat dramatic look so if you, unlike me, aren't used to wearing bold eye shadow on a daily basis, you may want to just walk around your house with it until you feel comfortable. Maybe this look would even work for a night out. However you decide to wear it, I hope you enjoy!
Here are the items we will be using today:
Crease brush and eyeliner brush by EcoTools, eye shadow sponge, NYX eye shadow palette, and Sephora eye shadow in the color 'My favorite jeans'.
Note: You are welcome to substitute colors and tools with any brands you like as long as you have a white and royal blue eye shadow, you will be fine. Also you absolutely do not NEED to use the brushes. If you want, use your fingertips for easy blending.
I also recommend using an eye shadow primer for any heavy or dramatic looks. It will ensure your eye shadow sticks all day and make your shadows more pigmented. Mine is Urban Decay Primer Potion.
Start off by covering your entire eye with white eye shadow. I used the eye shadow sponge for this but again if you find it easier just use your fingertips. Notice how I angled mine at a slight point when it reached my cheekbone.
Next, pat the blue eye shadow in a concentrated spot at the center of your eyelid and blend it out a little (so that the color is a much lighter blue) toward the inner corner and under your eye slightly. If the eye shadow is still dark after you have blended it to those areas, just use a little more white shadow to soften it.
Finally, line under your eye with the blue eye shadow, being careful not to go over the light blue area you created in the last step. I used the eyeliner brush for this step and I would definitely recommend finding a small brush or pointed eye shadow sponge so you get a nice precise line. Here is your completed look:
I hope this tutorial was helpful for you and even if you don't try this look, that it inspired you to make one of your own. I had so much fun creating this look and if you enjoy this type of article please let me know. I would love to do more in the future.
