7 Days / 7 Ways Spring Eye Make-Up : Day 4- Blue Skies!
I have to be honest. I really struggled today with what to do! Goodness! Have I been in a make-up slump for so long that I misplaced some of my mojo??? Heaven forbid!!!
I ended up coming up with an idea after I got dressed. I had on a dark smoky blue/grey sweater and denim. So I thought, why not dark blue skies as an inspiration. Not the bright blue of summer’s sunshine, but that dark blue of the sky when you realize that it’s late and the sun is just now setting because of spring waning it’s way towards summer and the days gradually getting longer.
So I did my usual matte taupe eye shadow as a base. Then a light blue/grey on the inner corners and a deeper blue for the outer corners and the crease. A little bit of white under the brows to highlight and it was time for eyeliner.
I didn’t want a harsh black, but I needed something of substance. That’s when I remembered my monochromatic palette! Black eye liner then quickly rimmed my eyes and the blue mono was brushed on top to make a gorgeous metallic/almost peacock blue. And then of course topped the whole look with two coats of Physician’s Formula Va Va Voom Mascara. #lashout
I’ll do better tomorrow. I promise! (Because I spent my lunch creating a spring eye make-up Pinterest board.) 🙂
