Smoky Blue FOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 16 - 2010

I never generally use more than 2 or 3 eyeshadows at once, I know lots of ladies manage to create spectacular looks with 5 or 6 shadows all expertly blended across the eye lid.  But I’m pretty cack-handed and can barely stop 2 from muddying together.  That and I just don’t have the time anymore to play, so here’s a very quick smoky eye…

Please excuse the stupid expression, even though I have no excuse.

Face:

~ No7 Essential Moisture Foundation in New Ivory mixed with NARS Orgasm Illuminator

Eyes:

~ eBay Generic Gel Eyeliner used as a cream shadow (Shimmer Skyline) – hard to blend but worth it.
~ Laura Geller Fire/Water Eye Shadow pressed onto lid (water half of the duo)
~ MAC Naval Blue pigment blended (badly) into the crease and above
~ L’oreal Super Liner Carbon Gloss Liquid Liner in Black
~ L’oreal Voluminous Mascara in Black

Lips:

~ NARS Cruising Lipstick

I can’t get enough of blue eye shadow at the moment, anyone else going through any shadow phases?

  4. That FOTD is gorgeous! I love the blue. I’m really feeling light shimmery shades at the moment, particularly Boots No7 in Iced Mauve and Antique Rose. A real departure for me, I normally wear dark browns, coppers and olive green!

    Oh, that is gorgeous! That little pop of blue is genius! I’m going through a blue eyeshadow phase too (been on it for a couple of months now, waiting to see when I tire of it). :D

  10. This looks great! I’m wishing I would have picked up NARS Cruising, seems like such a pretty colour on you. :)

    Have never, ever tried blue eyeshadow! I have green eyes and pillar-box red hair, so I’m guessing blue wouldn’t do me any favours. I might raid my Mum’s eyeshadows and play around with hers, but I’m guessing the outcome would be dubious at best.

    Gorgeous! If you hadn’t said it was just a couple of colours, I would have thought you were one of the aforementioned blending queens! It looks very complex. I’m having a moment with mac’s colourful Liberty of London eyeshadows, which is a stretch for me because usually I rely on taupe annnnnd… taupe.
