Fun Makeup:  Clear Sky Blue

I really, really wanted to play around with Clear Sky Blue pigment.  What better way than to use it as a base?  It’s actually one of the nicer matte pigments to use–some of them can be finicky, but this one’s a champ when used wet.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249.   With the 242, apply Clear Sky Blue pigment onto the lid with water-based mixing medium.  Using the 239, apply Aquarius eyeshadow on the inner third of the lid and pull upwards along the inner crease. Lightly blend Dashiki eyeshadow on the middle of the lid with the 239. Next, apply Atlantic Blue eyeshadow into the crease with the 226, lightly blending onto the outer lid. Define the crease with Atlantic Blue eyeshadow and the 226. Blend Brule eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Deviant liner on the lower lash line., and then smudging Atlantic Blue eyeshadow on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Sugarbomb blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Chintz lipstick first, and then layer Petite Peche glossimer for a complementing lip.

    Christine do you match your eyeshadow to your outfit or do you sometimes go with whatever your mood is for that day?

    This color looks amazing with your eye color… I have a sample of clear sky blue, but cannot get it to look this pretty… I see you used a mixing medium… I will have to try that…for some reason, I have such a hard time using the matte MAC pigments…. beautiful look!!!
