…BLUE Oasis… EYE Makeup TUTORIAL

First off.. let me just say.. I LOOOOOVVVEEEEE the colour, blue.

When I’m at the shops and come across the shade of colour.. I just go….’’WOW’’. When I see this colour throughout social media.. I go… ‘’Oooooo..’’. AND… when I see pictures or drive by the oceanic beaches.. I go ‘Ahhhhhhhh’…… Hahaha!

Anyway, going off topic… for today’s look, I wanted to step out of my ‘OG’ colour palette and go for a POP of colour. So….here it is.. an ‘easy-to-do’ EYE makeup tutorial. Believe me, when I say its easy.. it easy :)

To find out how I achieved this look.. just keep scrolling down.

STEP 1: PRIME the lids.

STEP 2: CONCEAL the lids (using a concealer or foundation) — we’re going to neutralise the lid.

STEP 3: SET the lids with a powder.

MORPHE — 35N EYESHADOW PALETTE

STEP 4: With a blender brush, combine the 2 shades (medium orange/red-tone), sweep this along the crease and blend outwards.

STEP 5: Using 2 brushes, start with a pencil brush, combine the 2 dark-plum shades and place this within the outer third of the crease. Begin to create the ‘outer-V’ shape.

Then using a blending brush, swipe the 2 pigments slightly within the inner crease. Concentrate the dark plum shades on the outer-third of the lid.

STEP 6: Using a pencil brush, pat this on the ‘outer-V’ and slightly within the outer third of the lid.

Using a blender brush, lightly blend and diffuse the black shade within the inner third of the crease.

Australis — Metallix EYESHADOW, ‘BLINK 18-BLUE’

STEP 7: Tracing and overdrawing our Inner crease, using a flat eye brush and begin to pat this over the lid.

Blend this cream eyeshadow so it blends with the black eyeshadow.

ChiChi Cosmetics — EYE SHADOW PIGMENT

STEP 8: To set out cream pigment to ensure it stays in place, we are going to place a loose blue-pigmented shadow over the entire blue-covered lid.

Use a small ‘natural-hair’ fibered brush. This will stay more on the lid and the brush.. not still stuck to the bottle.. haha!

STEP 9: Coat your lashes with your favourite mascara. The more voluminous and fuller the product, the better!

STEP 10: Find some beautiful fluttery lashes. A 3D-styled lash. Just gives the eye that ‘FAB’ look.

STEP 11: With a black pencil liner, line your bottom waterline.

STEP 12: Using the black eyeshadow, swipe this along the bottom lash line.

STEP 13: Going back to the 2 dark-plum eyeshadows, swipe and blend these pigments into the existing black liner.

STEP 14: Ending with our 1st two pigments, blend and diffuse this shade into the previous shades along the bottom lash line.
