Happy Tuesday everyone! :) Hopefully those of you who celebrate the holidays have finished your shopping, but if you haven’t–much luck and patience wished your way for all your last minute shopping. I’m totally going to Safeway to pick up gift cards for the several people who failed to give me wish lists!

I did this look two days ago, and I really liked how it came out! But it’s hard for me to resist blues and making them smoky and dark. ;)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Bell Bottom Blue pigment (navy blue base), Vellum eyeshadow (duochrome white), Arctic Grey eyeshadow (light silver), Mont Black eyeshadow (black), Penultimate Liner (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Enough Said blush (soft peach)
  • Lips: Up Note lipstick (beige nude), Naked Frost lipglass (taupe)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Bell Bottom Blue = Navy Blue; Arctic Grey = Electra; Mont Black = Black Tied; Enough Said = Bronzer; Up Note = Cherish; Naked Frost = Mad Cap

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Bell Bottom Blue pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Vellum eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Arctic Grey eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Darken the outer lid using Mont Black packed on and drag into crease using the 239. Darken crease with Mont Black eyeshadow using the 239. Sweep Vellum underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Penultimate Liner on upper lash line, Vellum eyeshadow on lower lash line (use the 219), and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Enough Said blush using the 129. Apply Up Note lipstick to lips, and then top with Naked Frost lipglass for color and shine.

Ohh, a little overboard in this look. I’m probably heading up to my parents’ house, so I’ll end up wearing a different look there anyway! (I usually spend all day outside running around with my puppy, so minimal makeup is usually better!)

I had Other Worldly blush (LE) on cheeks with Dior Amber Diamond Skin Shimmer on cheeks. I wore Fun Fun lipstick (LE) with Comet Blue dazzleglass (LE) and Ms. Fizz dazzleglass (LE).
