Jewel Eyes!!

Jewel colors look so amazing on eyes and its one of the easiest makeup looks to do. Many brand make lovely jewel colors like deep forest greens, amethysts, tourmalines etc. but I am going to sport my favorite Lapis Lazouli.

Lapis tone really brightens brown eyes and looks so amazing. I have used a bit of black as a low light to create depth instead of just putting one color altogether. Lets see how to do the look.

Start with a face primer like Smashbox Photofinish Primer Light and then apply an illuminating tinted moisturizer like Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer. Apply a bit of Clinique All About Eyes concealer in the under eye area and on things you want to hide. Use MAC Prep and Prime Finishing powder for a matte finish so as to not overpower the eye makeup.

For blush I would suggest Clinique Fresh Bloom All Over color in Peony for subtle color.


Use a shiny pink tinted gloss like Shiseido Chianti Rose. For people with different colored lips blend in a matter orchid colored lipstick like a stain and then put on the gloss.


You can see the diagramatic placement of the eyeshadows so let me talk about the other stuff. Use a clear eyeshadow primer, nothing with color so the Lapis color looks true to the lid. With a flat eyeshadow brush apply the basic Lapis color all over the lid first and then contour with matte black and highlight in the inner corners to add dimension.

Trace the water line by tight lining with black eye pencil like Bourjois Clubbing pencil in Black and use a gel liner on the top lid just concentrating at the lash line. Finish off with several coats of Bourjois Volumizer mascara. Groom the brows by brushing them in place.

For an extra dimension you can apply a lighter shimmery blue over the Lapis blue just on the centre of the lid very subtly so that it reflects light and gives a 3 D effect.

Hope you like the look. Please let me know.
