How To Apply Blue Eyeshadow
How To Apply Blue Eyeshadow
Blue eye shadows for your makeup guarantee a funky look. Using turqouise eye shadow and dark blue eyeliner, this video shows you the perfect blend of blue eye makeup.
Blue eye shadows create quite a funky look. Use a very turquoise eye shadow with a flat brush for this look. Prepare the eyelid with some eye makeup primer.
Use a flat brush and apply that really beautiful turquoise colour all over the mobile lid. Make sure you go in the corners, slightly above the crease and nicely outwards and along the lash line because that's quite an intense colour but in order to create a beautiful look, you always have to layer and blend your colours. Do the same onto the other eye.
You really press your eye shadows and you get the more intense versions of the colour by pressing instead of blending, so you're pressing it in. So, a couple of coats with that colour normally is enough and just slightly above the crease of the lid. Use a blending brush, a round very soft brush, to do a circular movement and with that, use a very pale blue or a whitish colour to go soften that turquoise.
It looks really nice but you can complete the look by doing a couple more things as well. Under the eyes, use a little angled brush to follow the shape of the eye and with that, use your first turquoise colour and go nicely all the way in so all along the inner corner of the eye and under the eyes. On the outer corner, it reaches the top as well so you have this really lovely blue hollow all the way under the eye.
Do the same on the other side. Always make it very intense on the corner so it looks very pretty, and then under the eye, so nearly like when you do a smoky look, so you want to look quite far down with the blue. Pick a blue pencil that can be very dark blue or very bright blue as long as it's darker than the colour you've just used.
And with that blue, go at the root of the lashes, under the eyes, work on top of the eyes and make it quite intense but make the line quite thin. Don't go too thick because you want to be able to see the difference of colours, to see the contrast with dark blue and with turquoise blue. Do the other side so it gives some definition to the eyes.
Incorporate a colored pencil with this and if you remove a little bit of the eye shadow by using the pencil, you just go over again with your angle brush underneath and make sure you see that lovely turquoise colour. Always do some definition touch to your makeup and now, you have that lovely contrast. Make sure the inner corner is nicely blended so you have a really lovely look, very nice and soft.
You need quite a lot of mascara. Again here, if you want to use a funky blue mascara, you can. But otherwise, just black mascara is fantastic.
Make sure that you wear enough mascara when you wear lighter colours because otherwise, it looks quite washed out. So, you have to create a contrast by using quite a lot of mascara. This is quite a sharp line so nearly like you apply a liquid eyeliner, so maybe a bit more to create more of an evening look so your first look was quite a funky day look.
So, you take your angled brush and you create that line that's going to come outwards, so a little bit there, like a little flick, thicker from the outer corner and thinner inwards and you have to be quite pointy on the outer corner and just make sure that obviously that both lines on both sides of the eyes are exactly the same. You then take your little cotton bud, your best friend when you do your makeup and you clean up the eye shadows that are fuller. But the easiest way to do a makeup like this when you're going to use bright or strong colours is always do your foundation last.
So, the blue looks really lovely because it's a cool colour and with the pink lipstick, it is quite cool as well, and keep the skin as natural as possible. .
