Get the Look: My subtle blue eye for some spring POP of color
I used to be so anti posting picture of myself on this site, but I think I'm just going to go with it. It is fun to share the looks I come up with and I hope that I can inspire you to try some of them for yourself! So here goes, my subtle blue eye for spring. I thought this would be a good one becuase I didn't use too many products and I can actually remember how it all came together:
FACE: After moisturizing, I used Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
to prime and ready my complexion a bit, and then I just used my new concealer from BECCA
to cover up some imperfections and some MAC Mineralize Skinfinish
matte powder to even and mattify a bit. For blush I used an old standby, MAC Mineralize Blush
Dainty. It is such a pretty pink with specks of gold, so nice for spring.
EYES: I primed my lids (ALWAYS, ALWAYS prime ladies) with NARS's eyeshadow primer
, and then used my new Shiseido cream eye color in Ice
all over my lids.
I applied the cream shadow with my finger, starting really subtle at first and then building just a bit to get the right shade of blue. Then I lined my upper lid with Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes
in 12L, a dark tourquise. I kept it very thin though, creating a blue eye that was striking but still subtle enough for daytime. I then threw on my only black-blue mascara, CoverGirl's LashBlast 24 Hour
Lips: After a moisterizing balm, I applied Napoleon Perdis's Devine Lipstick in Artemis
. It is a pretty pale pink that doesn't have too much shine but enough color, I thought it complemented the blue eye well. I reapplied it all day long and it didn't cake or dry out my lips. Yay!
I threw on my new beige patent pumps, jeans, and a new white tunic top from banana, and I'm not going to lie, I felt like a million bucks!
