Some days back I posted the following eye makeup look on Facebook page of Sifa’s Corner and readers asked me to make a tutorial for it.
If blue is your favorite color, you are going to love today’s tutorial…because it’s blue on blue!
Without further ado, let’s get started.
What have I used:
1 . Maybelline 24 hour color tattoo (75 Electric Blue)
2 . MAC replica pigments: Metallic Blue and Gold
3 . Urban Decay pencil liner in Perversion
4 . ELF cream eyeliner in black
5 . Blue glitter eyeliner by La Femme
6 . BH cosmetics 120 eyeshadow palette
7 . Maybelline volum’ express turbo boost mascara
8 . False Lashes
I have not used any eye primer before starting. Because the Maybelline color tattoo acts as a great base for eye shadows But if you want to use one, go ahead and use a primer like Urban Decay “Eden” or Benefit “Stay Don’t Stray”.
We are going to apply the Maybelline 24 hour color tattoo first on the movable part of upper eye lid. It will act as a blue base for the eye makeup. Do not cross the crease. After applying, it will look like this.
Now blend the edges of the Blue base with a soft brush. It will look like this.
Take a blue pigment or shadow and gently pat it on the blue base area. Softly blend the edges.
Now take the darkest black eyeshadow you have and make a “V” like this on the outer 3rd of your upper lid.
Blend the harsh “V” with some more black shadow and gradually make the outer part darker.
Now take a warm brown (2-3 shades darker than your skin color) and place it on the crease, just above the very prominent blue-black line we have just made.
Now it’s time to blend some more! Blend the warm brown with your black & blue so that it makes a beautiful smoked out look like this.
Take a gold shadow or pigment and apply it on the inner corner and inner one third of the lower lid.
Take your black kohl or eye pencil and line the lower lash line. I have used UD Perversion.
Now take your black shadow and smudge it with the black kohl on the lower lid.
Take your blue shadow or pigment and smudge it with the black shadow on lower lid.
Take your black liquid or gel liner and line the upper lid. Do not make any flicks. Just trace the upper lash line.
Now take a blue glitter liner and apply it on the outer 3rd of the upper lid with a prominent flick. Make it a “Cat liner” but only on the outer 3rd.
Take your black liner and line above the blue glitter liner like following. Join the newly drawn black line with the previous line.
Take your blue shadow/pigment and join the lower lid with the upper blue glitter line.
Fill in your brows and highlight those with a matte cream colored shadow. Apply mascara; add falsies and the eyes are done!
So, did you like this look? It’s great for night time!
