GRR!! I really, really LOVED this look and how it turned out, and of course – I didn’t do close-ups in front of a mirror, so they didn’t turn out as well as they normally did. I included more full-face shots as a compromise, since I just uploaded them this morning (aka, the makeup was removed!). The boy and I went to a fancy schmancy steakhouse to celebrate our anniversary a few days early (super yum!), so I got all dolled up for it :)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: MAC Azreal Blue pigment (light blue), Dior Twilight Eyeshadow Quint, MAC Fly-by-blu pearlglide liner (navy), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Gentle mineralize blush (soft raspberry-pink)
  • Lips: YSL Lingerie Pink rouge volupte lipstick (cool, pastel pink), Cult Fave lipglass (pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Azreal Blue = Delft; Fly-by-blu = Prussian; Gentle = Plum Foolery; Lingerie Pink = Snob; Cult Fave = Cultured (for this look only)

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Azreal Blue pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner-to-middle lid, apply the light blue shade from the Dior quint using the 239 brush. Apply the light silver color of the Dior quint to the middle of your lid using the 239 brush. Darken the outer lid using the dark blue shade from the Dior quint and drag into crease using the 239. Sweep the light blue shade underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Fly-by-blu pearlglide liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Gentle blush using the 129. Apply YSL Lingerie Pink lipstick to lips, and then top with Cult Fave lipglass for color and shine.

  3. Wow, you’re one of the few people I’ve seen that can pull off really really extreme blue eyeshadow looks without making it look too over-the-top! This is gorgeous!!

    I noticed that the eyeshadow colour goes a little higher than usual…or at least that there isn’t as much highlighter shade space as there usually is. But it totally works! Plus, I love the whole “ombre” effect with the light-to-dark blue shades.

    Another winner for Christine :) Congrats to you and your boyfriend!

    • Aw, thanks, Miss Fred! I think it might just be confidence and perhaps even that you’ve probably seen me in so many bright colors, LOL!

      I don’t really have a heighth I keep to, but sometimes the shadow goes higher or lower.

      Thank you!

    Beautiful!! and Congratulations! How was the steak?

    Are there any MAC dupes for the eyeshadow you used? I’m guessing probably Deep Truth for the dark blue color. Congrats on your anniversary.

    • A reader mentioned how similar Lark About was to the lightest blue shade – it is close, but this particular eyeshadow is still bluer. Deep Truth for the dark blue color for sure, though. You could use Electra for the silver, I think!

    The eyes are so perfect! Its really well done and it’s lovely with that blue top of yours. This quint is a good shade of blue that isn’t too bright and tropical, and it gives this nice royalty feel! great :)

    THAT LOOK IS ROCKING GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love this Christineeee!!!! Just beautiful….. Very pretty!

  20. michelle

    You look so pretty!
    I love the eye makeup. And I have the eyeliner!!! An excuse for me to buy the rest of the shadows right?

    What do you mean by coordinating powder shadow ?

    By the way, your lip color combination looks alot like the one the Sales Associate told me regarding mixing the 2 lipsticks from the Emanuel Ungaro collection.

  21. Kristelle

    way too frosty on you…

    • Is there a look you think would suit me? I don’t think you’ve ever liked a look I’ve done, so I’d like to know what you think would work instead!

  22. Bettina

    that’s lovely, thanks for giving me my look for tonight :) I don’t have any of the colors you used so I made use of moon’s reflection, deep truth, freshwater, a touch of silver ring and even actually a small tocuh of carbon.
