Quick Look: For Everyone Who Says Blue Eyeshadow Is Tacky....

Suck on this!

Haha! Sorry, I really couldn't help myself with the title there. I think I look a bit smug in these pictures too lol.

I had originally intended to to a blue and green eye, but I got going with the blue and this just happened! I used the bright blue from my Lunatick Cosmetic Labs AlieNEON glitter stacker for this eye. This was actually a really simple look. I swept that all over the lid and blended it up lightly right to my brows. I then added a bit of the Blue Chocolat shade from my Sigma Creme de Couture palette to blend it further. I finished by adding a ton of silver to my inner corner and bottom lashline. The silver I used is L'ancome's Color Design eyeshadow in Style Selection, which I think is the only silver I own. On my lips is Impulse Cosmetics' Permafrost lipstick.

You will have to excuse how tired I look in these photos! I actually did the eye makeup near the end of the day, since I thought I had nowhere to go, but then someone called me and said they could give me a ride to the grocery store, so out the door I went. That's right, I don't drive... :P Anyways, my day ended up busier than I planned and once I got home and was finally ready to take pictures, my makeup had been on for several hours and I was tired! The lipstick was added just before I took pictures though, so at least it looks fresh!

Well, that's it for the look! I am really pleased by how well the lipstick matches the eyes. What's your opinion on blue eyeshadow? Do you think it's tacky?

  2. So stunning!! I'm not a huge fan of frosty blue shadow, but an electric/cobalt blue is always great in my opinion ;)
