Blue Smokey Eyes #MakeupMonday

Hi Darlings,

For today’s #MakeupMonday I really wanted to incorporate some colour in a smokey look which I usually never do and I had not one, not four, but THREE different inspirations.

A few months ago I saw a photo scrolling on instagram, I’m pretty sure it was over the Summer but I can’t remember at all who was the author of the look or anything else apart from the look  (if you know who did it let me know so I can tag her) it had a really intense blue on the lid and a warm brown in the crease that I tought was so interesting.

Second inspiration was a look that Kim Kardashian did ages ago that I stumble upon the other day and lastly I had this gorgeous blue in the Urban Decay Palette I used that I was DYING to play with but never had: so I thought, what a better occasion to play with it than this?

Overall I’m really happy for how the look turned out and as always it’s super easy the key is to blend, blend, blend.

  • Eyeshadows: Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette, I used Tempera all over the lid to set the primer and to make blending easier. Then I took a mixture of Raw Sienna and Burnt Orange and I applied it into the crease to create a diffuse look. With a smaller blending brush I went into the crease with the shade Danger from the Urban Decay Palette they did in collaboration with Gwen Stefani (it was limited edition but you can find this shade of blue from different brands like MAC, NYX or Kiko) to create a more delicate transition. Blended everything with a the brush I used with the oranges. 


    With a wet flat brush I put the blue all over the lid and on the lower lashline and blended one more time. On the inner corner and browbone I used the Smashbox Spotlight Palette as I did on the face.

  • Eyeliner: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in TrooperSephora Kohl and Liner in Intense Black in the upper and lower waterline.
  • Mascara: L’Oreal Lash Paradise + Eylure Volume 100 Lashes

To set it all in place I used the Essence Instant Matt Setting Spray.

Ciao Darlings,

Per il #MakeupMonday di oggi ho voluto incorporare un po’ di colore in un look smokey, cosa che di solito non faccio e ho anche avuto più di un’inspirazione per questo make up.

Qualche mese fa ho visto una foto su instagram, sono abbastanza sicura sia stato quest’estate ma non non ricordo ne chi fosse l’autore della foto o niente in particolare, ricordo solo il look (se conoscete l’autore fatemelo sapere e provvederò a taggarla) aveva un blu intenso sulla palpebra e un marrone caldo nella piega, la combinazione era veramente interessante.

La seconda inspirazione è un look vecchissimo di Kim Kardashian del quale ho visto una foto l’altro giorno e infine c’era questo splendido blu nella palette di Urban Decay che ho utilizzato che MORIVO dalla voglia di provare: perciò ho pensato: quale occasione migliore?

Tutto sommato sono contenta del risultato finale che come al solito è facilissimo da ricreare: la chiave è sfumare, sfumare, sfumare.

blue smokey

  • Ombretti: Anastasia Modern Renaissance, Ho usato Tempera per fissare il primer. Successivamente ho usato un mix di Raw Sienna and Burnt Orange nella piega per creare un look sfumato. Con un pennello da sfumatura piccolino ho usato Danger della palette di Urban Decay in collaborazione con Gwen Stefani (la palette era purtroppo un’edizione limitata ma il blu che ho usato è molto facile da trovare qui alcuni colori simili di MAC, NYX e Kiko) l’ho applicato nella piega per creare una transizione più delicata e ho sfumato il tutto con il pennello sporco dagli arancioni.Eyeshadows

    Con un pennello piatto e inumidito con un po’ d’acqua ho applicato il blu anche sulla palpebra mobile e la rima inferiore. Ho sfumato il tutto un’ultima volta. All’angolo interno e sull’arcata sopraccigliare ho usato la Smashbox Spotlight Palette, ovvero lo stesso illuminante che ho usato sul viso.

  • Eyeliner: Tattoo Liner di Kat Von D in Trooper + Sephora Kohl and Liner in Keep Black, per delineare la rima interna.
  • Mascara: L’Oreal Paradise Extatic + Eylure Volume 100.
