An Embellished Blue Eyeshadow Tutorial That Will Turn HeadsMay 05, 2022
Wing It Out
To start, Brit grabbed a very thin eyeliner brush and the NYX Professional Makeup Swear By It Shadow Palette. Using a dark blue shade, she sketched out a winged eyeliner shape. “It doesn’t have to be precise at all because you’re going to smoke it out in the next step,” she says.
Apply Some Shimmer
Once the eyeliner is complete, it’s time to brighten up the look with a lighter blue shade. “I used a flat brush to really dig into the pan and applied the shade all over my lid,” says Brit. “It’s so pretty, really pigmented and looks wet, so you won’t need too much product.” Then, using a buffing brush, blend the liner with the shadow for a diffused look.
For a more intense color payoff, wet your brush with setting spray prior to application.
Focus on the Lower Eye
To create dimension, Brit suggests dragging the dark blue used in the first step across the lower lash line. “Use the same eyeliner brush and connect the lower lash line to the upper liner and create a tapered shape,” she says. “I did not blend the lower line to keep it crisp and pretty.”
For an added pop, use a bright blue eyeliner in the waterline. Brit used the L.A. Girl Shockwave Neon Liner in Fresh. We also love the Urban Decay Wired 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Deep End.
Add Final Touches
To make the look pop, you have to add some face gems (like these from Amazon). Start by applying small dots of lash glue where you want your gems and then apply them with a pair of tweezers or a dotting tool. Finish off with some fake lashes, mascara and a nude lip.
