I have not done much in terms of researching, try and testing different makeup products these days due to been 38 weeks pregnant and juggling my life around my already existing children! Boy, has this been a busy week. But yet very exciting I shall have my new arrival in my arms on the 5th November, what a truly magical day. Whilst the skies are lit with fireworks I shall be having my own little firework been brought into this world!
I some how managed to squeeze in the time to try out the sea blue/green with hints of blue and purple. This is not what the tutorial was called that I followed. The tutorial was based on using a colour wheel to find which colours would go well together and blend nicely. It was a very useful article to read.
Please excuse the heeadphones! I love listening to my music loud as I get ready in the morning, and this is the only way I can get away with it haha! Listening to great tunes, gets me ready and in the mood to take on the day!
Before I got started with the eye shadow, I applied my moisturizer, face primer, foundation and concealer and prepping my eyes with eyeshadow primer before setting to work with the colours.
I applied NYX white crayon “Milk” all over my eye lid and blended well up to about half way point of my eyebrow bone, also blending outward from the tear duct, this is so I can highlighting the inner corners of my eye. Help them stand out more! I then chose my three colours I was going to work with I chose a sea blue/green (similar to Turquoise) For the inner corners of my eye, carefully patting the eyeshadow brush along to about half way across the eye lid, also taking the colour along the lower lash line, starting from the tear duct slightly and blended a little with my finger by dabbing.
Taking a blue (dark) I used a tiny amount and dabbed where the sea blue/green finished. only need a small amount as didnt want to much of the dark blue added. Again, using my finger I blended it in with the previous colour. Finally I used a purple which I took to the outer eyelid and right across the crease of my eye lid, blending above the crease line as I went before finally taking the purple below my lower lash line to meet up with the sea green/blue!
I finished off with a streak of gel eye liner and a subtle mascara! I could of gone further, by adding some glitter along the eye lid and using a more dramatic coating of mascara to create more of a party makeup do. But since as I did this in the morning I stuck with been a bit more subtle.
