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.


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


~ 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


~ NARS Cruising Lipstick

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

    Your skin is looking flawless!

  3. 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!

  7. That colour looks stunning against your creamy skin!

    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). 😀

  9. 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.

    so pretty! i loveee blues x

  12. That blue is gorgeous *__* I’m going through a gold phase – I’ll use it every day if I don’t consciously think about things!

  13. That blue looks stunning!

    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.
