Winter Blues Tutorial

After being inspired by Anna from Fenua Beaute, I wanted to wear Illamasqua Burst. I ended up turning it into a cold, wintery blue look with a few touches of gold.

Before you begin, prep the eyes with your favorite eyeshadow primer.

How to Achieve the Look:

  1. Use a fluffy brush to apply Sugarpill Tako to the browbone and blend downwards to the crease.
  2. Pat Illamasqua Burst onto the lid and into the crease.
  3. Use a fluffy brush to blend Illamasqua Intense into the crease and the outer corner of the lid.
  4. With a damp brush, apply Sugarpill Darling along the lower lash line.
  5. With a damp brush, apply Sugarpill Starling to the upper lash line.
  6. Add mascara.
  7. Line the waterline with Baked liner.

        WendiThroatPunchGirven Thanks Wendi :) I thought the gold would be a nice accent.

      This looks rad with all the blue in your hair, and your blue eyes too. Not too much of course, clever gold hides on the waterline ^_^
