To start this tutorial off, I start by taking the lightest blue shade from the NYX Brights palette on a Zoeva 228 brush, and blend that into my crease carefully. I take a small amount on my brush and build it slowly to avoid my eye shadow looking too heavy in the crease. I then take the same shade, and on my finger apply this all over my lid – then blending it out with the same Zoeva brush. I also bring that shade and blend a small amount under my eye, connecting all the shadow together.
I then take the next shade to the left of that blue, in the same palette, focusing that right into my crease on a Zovea 228 brush. Then on my outer third of my eyelid, using my finger, I also apply that same shade. Blending it all together using that same brush and pulling the shade out to elongate my eyes.
I found that the pigmentation of the first blue shade did wear slightly after blending all the shades out – once I had finished blending all the other shades out, I re-applied a small amount of that original blue shade to my eyelid.
Using the Cosmic Ocean from the Fenty Galaxy palette – on a damp Zoeva 237 brush brush, I tapped this shade on my inner third of my eye. Tapping over that using my finger was the best way to get pigmentation, in my opinion – without disturbing the blue shades underneath.
Moving onto my eyeliners. I start by lining my lower lash line using the NYX Sapphire eye pencil. To help blend my upper lash line with my liquid liner and lashes, I decided to use Rimmel Scandal eyes pencil on my upper lash line – instead of the Sapphire liner.
I then use Rimmel Glam eyes liquid liner to create a medium/large wing – and the contrast black and the blue both make each other pop.
For my lashes I applied a think coat of Maybelline Great lash mascara to my up and lower lashes – to help blend with my false lashes.
Some of my new favourite lashes are made by Doll Beauty – using the Alexis style for this tutorial. I absolutely love how they make my eyes look so fluttery. Since this video I have wore my pair around 6 times and they are still perfectly fine to wear. That’s even through it heavily raining at a festival last weekend. Definitely will be purchasing more of this brand of lashes.
Time to move onto finishing my face makeup. I start by taking my trusty Benefit Hoola bronzer and apply that to my cheekbones, around my forehead and to the bridge of my nose, on a Zoeva 127 brush. I like to do this to make my features more defined or to make them appear smaller.
For my cheeks I use Rockateur blush, also from Benefit – on a Zoeva 101 brush. This is one of my favourite blushes. It applies so easily, without having to cover your brush in product. It also applies so beautifully, blending out easily.
My highlighter I use the shade Luna out of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Auora palette on a Zoeva 105 brush. I apply this to the tops of my cheekbones, up the side of my face, my chin and down the bridge of my nose. Then on a Zoeva 230 brush, I dip into the Shade Orion and apply that to my inner corners, to finish the eye look off.
To finish off the look, I start by applying NARS lip pencil in the colour El Agua. Lining the outside of my lips. Then on top I mix together both 40 and 43 shades of the Kate Moss Lipsticks. I blend them out with my finger to mix them together. Finishing the lips off, I go over the top with Lipstick Queen lipgloss – in Space Cadet. This bought the whole look together as the lip gloss has a blue reflects in it – which matched with the eye look perfectly.
Thank you to everyone who complimented this makeup look! I honestly think this makeup would be flattering on so many of you, just may have to jump a bit out of your comfort zone for some people. If you do decide to re-create it, make sure you tag me on social media. I would love to see your beautiful recreations.
