Hey all! It’s time for a bit of a change. My blog layout is staying put and so is my name, but my writing and perhaps sometimes my format will be a bit different (like perhaps videos?). There are some technical difficulties to be worked out so in the mean time, let me reintroduce myself. Hey, my name is Amy and I am a make up hoarding, colour loving, plus sized beauty blogger.
Today, I wanted to go back and do a tutorial that I thought looked awesome but never actually posted! This is the blue Make Up For Ever eye liner look from the pop of colour post I did back in June. I know, I know, I am a little behind. This can be done with any colour you want of course, but I drew inspiration from the palette I planned to use for my eyes: the Maybelline The Smokes palette and that jean-blue shade.
Eye Lid Primer: Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Eye Shadow: Maybelline The Smokes palette
Pencil Eye Liner: Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in 15L
Liquid Eye Liner: Make Up For Ever Ink Liner** (totally drool worthy)
Mascara: Make Up For Ever Smokey Stretch mascara**
I always prime my eyes first to keep my colours in check. I was going for a cool toned eye shadow look that was pretty light so the blue would really pop. First, a grey all over the lid (top row, shade 2), then a slightly darker grey/silver (Top row, shade 6) in the crease to add dimension. I wanted the lid to be a little lighter so I added the nude of the palette (Top row, shade 4) all over the lid before blending in the jean blue colour that I bought this palette for (top row, shade 1) in the crease as well.
I put the blue MUFE Aqua Eyes liner in my waterline and smoked it out with the left over jean blue (top row, shade 1) and finished the eye off with a small cat eye flick and some fantastic mascara.
Til next time, ttfn x
