Be BOLD with Blue Eyeshadow

Blue is my all time favorite color and it has pretty much stayed that way since I was a kid. But for some reason I don’t really go the blue route when it comes to eyeshadow.

For Christmas, my sister (Sarah) gifted me a “DM Color Fix 24-Hour Cream”. It’s a cream that is advertised as versatile for the whole face. I swatched it on my hand and let me tell you…PIGMENT! The color was bright, shimmery and not muted at all. Electric is probably the best way to describe the color payoff.

With this product a little bit goes a long way. One little dot is enough to cover a larger area. I found that this cream does very well with powder eyeshadows, but if you are looking to blend the cream, do so fast, because it dries quickly.

Since I fell in love with this product, I decided it was finally time to do a blue eyeshadow look.

Eyeshadow looks that are more editorial have been really catching my attention, so I decided to create a look that is sharp and definitely not your everyday eyeshadow look.

For this blue eyeshadow look I used my James Charles Morphe palette and the color fix cream.

Okay, but look at all the colors!!

For the main blue color on the lid I used the color “Playground” and covered my whole lid and I did not blend it out. I tried my best to make the line go with the shape of my lid; almost like an oval.

For the second darker blue, I used the color “A cappella”. I packed it in the outer corner of my eyelid and brought it out to a sharp line. I blended it in the middle of my lid with the first blue color for a more seamless transition.

To clean up any edges I went in with a makeup wipe in a straight line by my crease and out edge of my eyelid.

I then got an eyeliner brush and used my color fix cream to create a winged eyeliner look. I went in again with my makeup wipe to make the edges more sharp and defined. I used a brown mascara to finish the look.
