I will be the first to say that I very rarely follow trends. I sort of just do what I like, but sense I have become more aware of the fashion world around me I have been crazy interested in make-up trends. Someone decided that blue eyeliner was going to be a thing for this spring, so I decided to test it out. My goal was to make it easier to do, a bit more wearable, and provide you with a great drugstore option, because I am sorry but I am not spending close to $15+ on a blue liner. The Look:
Before applying my make-up I washed and moisturized my face to start with a clean and hydrated canvas.
For my primer I decided to use the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. This is primer has never done me wrong!
For my foundation I decided to use the Neutrogena Skin Clearing foundation in the shade “classic ivory”. My face has been very broken out lately, so I decided to use something that would benefit my skin in some way.
I am on the last legs of my Maybelline Fit Me concealer. I use the shades “10” to conceal and “15” to highlight.
To contour I used the L’oreal True Match blendable crayon concealer. I am using the shade “n6 7-8”.
For some reason my powder wasn’t in the picture. But, we all know what the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in “translucent” looks like right?
I never reach for my E.L.F Bronzer Palette in “bronzed beauty”, I decided to actually do so today. I used the very 1st shade in the palette. (Top right for those who like to be difficult about descriptions ;)).
I also reached for a blush I rarely use today, the Physicians Formula Happy Booster in “natural”.
For my highlight I used the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector, in the shade “opal”. I have a felling this is going to turn into my go to highlight as the weather continues to warm up.
As per-usual, I started off by priming my lids. I used the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later primer. I got this as an Ipsy product and actually like it quite a lot.
I used the M.A.C shadow in the shade “cork” in my crease. Any soft brow shade will work, less shimmer the better. On my lid I then used the M.A.C shadow in the shade “jest”. Any, shimmery light pink will work. I used a flat shader brush, which I had wet with M.A.C Fix +, to make the shade a little more shiny. I then used the E.L.F Baked Shadow Trio in “peach please”. I only used the matte brown shade to define my crease (dry), and the white shade as my brow highlight (dry), then I used it again to highlight my inner corner (wet).
I then tight lined my upper lash line with the Maybelline Master Precise Skinny Gel Liner in “brown”.
NOW FOR THE FUN PART! For the fun pop of blue I used the Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick in the shade “blamed blue”. I put it on my bottom water line just like you would any liner, and right above my upper lash line. No need to worry about this line being perfect because we are going to smudge it out! The is also no type of wing involved involved, so no fuss!
The Lip Combo:
I wanted to play with a lip product I have just recently got ( soon to review, hint hint!). I used the NYX High Voltage Lipstick in the shade “flutter kiss” on the outer part of my lips and the shade “mirage” in the inner part of my lips. I got this lip combo idea from Emilynoel83 on YouTube and I am loving it!
I really hope that you enjoyed this look! How are you going to wear your blue liner? What looks would you like to see? Thoughts on any of the products used? Let me know!
