It's been absolutely ages since I did any sort of bright, creative eye makeup so I thought it was high time I dug out some of my favourite palettes and see what I could come up with. I was like a little girl playing with her favourite crayons again, God I missed doing makeup looks, afterall that's why I began my blog in the first place, to share my favourite (if slightly 'out there') makeup looks with the world. I'm not a professional and never will be but I really enjoying trying out different makeup and experimenting with colour. I was instantly drawn to two gorgeous blue shades from two different palettes I own - Sugarpill's Sweetheart palette and Lime Crime's Aquataenia palette. These palettes were two that I lusted over so much before buying but I'm sad to say that they just sit in my makeup box now, I really need to use them more and I think summer is the perfect season to as the shades are so bright. The two blues I chose to use are actually quite similar in colour but Sugarpill's 'Afterparty' is a matte shadow, whereas Lime Crime's 'Nautilus Prime' is a shimmer shadow and slightly darker in colour. The pigmentation of both shadows is absolutely amazing! I think the two blues used together make for quite an electric look which really pops, the blue is such a fun colour for a summers night look. I used 'Afterparty' all over the lid, 'Nautilus Prime' on the outer corners of the eye and on the crease. I lined the top lash line with a golden brown eye pencil from Sephora and the bottom lash line with 'Nautilus Prime' for a bit of shimmer to frame the eye (tell me I'm not the only one who uses eye shadow as an eyeliner!) and finished with one of my favourite mascaras ever, LOOkX, as it really elongates the lashes.
I really loved this look. It's really simple but the blue mix is just stunning, I really wish my pictures could have captured it better, I hate photographing my eyes, my camera never seems to pick up the effect properly. I hope you like this eye of the day look, it's one I'll be sporting on a night out during the summer months for sure.
Stay pretty people!
