My Makeup Color Series: Blue 💙

Hey Beauties!

I decided to jump on the band wagon (even though I don’t usually like following the crowd) with this blue eye shadow movement. I have done a blue halo eye also as part of my color series a while ago before, click HERE to view.

For this look I almost didn’t post this as it’s not my best, I could have perfected it more but I was loosing natural daylight halfway through and wasn’t going to stop in the middle of doing my makeup.

But anyway I decided to post this even though this look was rushed, and I was having a really hard time with the eye shadows as it were not up to standard as I explain further on. Hope you still like it.

PRODUCTS USED:

FACE:

Foundation: Maybelline Super Stay Long-lasting Foundation (I’m doing a full review on this foundation in my next post)

Color corrector + Concealer: Clinique Beyond Perfecting Corrector (Apricot) and Beyond Perfecting Concealer (Moderately Fair)

Powder: Yardley Loose Translucent Powder (I need to get a new powder, this is almost finished and I keep repeating this powder in every makeup look)

Contour: Wet n Wild Highlight and Contour Palette – Caramel Toffee

Highlight: Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter – Molten Gold(a full review on this powder will be in my next post)

Brows: NYX Micro Brow Pencil – Espresso and Essence Make Me Brow Gel – Browny Brows

EYES: 

 

Morphe 35N and Rimmel Magnif’eyes Eye shadow in Magnetic Blue

Eye shadow: I really wouldn’t recommend it this shadow, it’s not pigmented enough, I tried spraying my brush, using my finger but the intensity wasn’t all there or what I expected looking at it in the pan. For intense color I would rather pay more for quality, highly pigmented eye shadow.

The brown transition shades were fine, easy to blend and pigmented from the Morphe shadows. But the 2 black shades were not as pigmented and not easy to blend. Again, with dark shades I would rather pay more and get a quality, pigmented eye shadow palette. Even on my lower lash line I struggled to blend it.

Eyeliner:NYX Matte Liquid Liner(I didn’t apply a wing, just a normal line on my upper lash line to hide the lash band)

Lashes: Ardell Demi Wispies

LIPS: 

Mac Cosmetics – Blankety

I went for a nude tone as the eyes were super dramatic.
