Hello friends! I hope everyones week is going well so far, mine definitely is!
Today I'm going to share a makeup look I've been experimenting with lately! I've been marathoning Project Runway and one of their challenges worked with a lot of sparkle so I kind was inspired to start wearing a lot more sparkle in my makeup.
I decided to go a bit bold today and do a sparkly blue eye - which I think is subtle enough for everyday wear. Sometimes I get in such a rut and habit with my makeup looks, even though I have so many fun makeup products. It's important to change it up and get out of your comfort zone!
I really love how it turned out - and in person, it really sparkles!
How to Create this look:
I started out with my base and used the L'Oréal Magic Lumi foundation all over my face and then hid my undereye circles using the NARS creamy concealer. I set everything with the Rimmel Stay Matte powder. To finish off my flawless base I used the Anastasia Brow Wiz and then the E.L.F. 'Tickled Pink' blush on the apples of my cheeks.
To get this pretty sparkly blue eye look, I began with using one of my favorite products - the L'Oréal Colour Riche Dual Effects quad, this time in 'Eternal Blue'. I used the lightest shade across my entire lid and then blended out the darkest blue into my crease for definition. I patted the second-darkest blue into my outer-eye area just below the crease. After that, I used the Ulta Glitter Top Coat in silver and using a wet, flat brush, patted this on my lid. I focused this on the first half of my eyelid and my inner tear duct, just giving myself as much sparkle as I can!
Next, I took a fantastic blue eyeliner, the Sephora's retractable waterproof liner to lightly line my lower lash line. I also took this pencil and deepened up the outer part of my eye. Lastly, I took this eyeliner and tight-lined my upper lash line. I love tight-lining - it makes your lashes look deep and gorgeous and full. Tight-lining with the blue just adds another awesome element to this look.
I love how this look turned out - especailly how sparkly and shimmery it is with that pop of blue along the lash line and in the outer part of the lid!
I hope you all liked it!
