“If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies”
Hello my lovelies!
I came back with the color since my more neutral look didn’t seem to work out as well with you guys, which I get completely. We’ve seen all kinds of neutral looks before. At the same time though, I can’t wear blue eyeshadow to work all the time, so basic looks are going to have to suffice for you guys on occasion.
I finally attempted to put on some lashes, and I really think I did a decent job. Obviously I can improve, as with any makeup technique, but I’m also pleased that I’ve finally taught myself how to do this. I will only be reserving false lashes for more dramatic looks, as I do not want to become reliant on a product that can damage my natural lashes permanently with overuse. I think for this type of look, the lashes help create more dimension, which is exactly what I wanted.
I also realized while editing these photos that this eye look seems to be an accidentally improved version of my Rainbow Pride: Blue tutorial. It’s truly amazing to see how much I’ve improved in a little less than a year, and having the evidence to prove it makes it all the more better.
Are you guys into my mythological themed looks? What colors would you like to see next? Any older looks that you want me to recreate? Let me know in the comments!
Let’s get started:
- Prime and set the eyes with a powder or shadow that best matches your skintone
- Take “Safe Word” throughout the crease as a deepening shadow. This will allow the blue shadows to lay down on the skin nicely without any skipping.
- Pack “Poison” from inner to outer corner, blending through the crease. Create a sharp angle toward the tail end of the brow.
- Layer “Swallow” on top of “Poison” to darken the shadow, following the same base shape that we created.
- Cut the lid with concealer, extending the concealer well past the crease to create the illusion of a bigger eyelid space.
- Pack an iridescent aqua shade across the lid (I used NYX Prismatic Shadow “Mermaid” while the concealer is still slightly tacky. This will help increase the pigmentation of the shadow.
- Trace the outline of the aqua shadow in a circular motion with a silver glitter liner. Fade the liner on the outer and inner corners toward the center of the lid as well.
- Mix “Poison” and “Swallow” and blend from the inner corner, halfway inward along the lashline. Connect the outer corner with the eyelid shadows.
- On the inner half of the lashline, blend the iridescent aqua shade toward the inner corner.
- Highlight the tear duct with a blue or purple toned highlighter. Use the same highlighter on the face to help tie in the eye look.
- Line the waterline with a turquoise or navy toned liner.
- Curl and coat the lashes with mascara. Apply falsies if that’s your thing.
