Into the BLUE

This week on and off I decided to do posts on 'Blue' eyeshadows and create some wearable versions of this bright and beautiful color.

Blue has always been a hit and miss color for most of us since we don't use it that often. At least I and a couple of blogger friends are there who keep on buying similar versions of blue and its brethren and use it maybe once in a year and talk lots about it and then forget. This is because the color is not so flexible to wear and doesn't come anywhere in 'nude' kinds of makeup.

In the future posts I wanted to pay an ode to this famous color and create uber chic easy looks that could be done by all. BLUE as a color itself is PRIMARY hue on the color wheel. Mix it with YELLOW and it give GREEN and mix it with RED it gives PURPLE. Being the only 'Cool' primary color it adds a perfect harmony to balance the warmth not only in nature but in our existence too.

As a representative of the element WATER, in the world of beauty and makeup, BLUE is known for being bright and bold with no one actually prodding the vulnerability of this color (not much of advertising). Though being a cool, BLUE could be made warm by adding GOLD and it may not be my favorite combination but I have used blue with gold in some posts. Ornamented with catchy names like Azure, Lapis lazuli, malachite, cobalt etc I have always been a fan of a lot of blues and have many in my stash of makeup (which I never boasted or bragged about but you have seen a glimpse of).

In the 'Into the BLUE' series I would be incorporating various looks using blues and various versions of shades, tones and tints of blue. This may or may not include other versions where the pure hue of blue is gone but I promise to include these colors in different other posts or series.

Here's a glimpse of blue makeup that I am trying to create for this series......

When blue meets anthracite.

Transitions of navy.

Inspired by a Pixiwoo video although the look came out to be cooler than intended. LOL

My favorite look.

Dedicated to Illamasqua's Sophie-I technique

Warmer version of cooler blues.

There are more looks that are in the process of editing and posting. Hope you would like the looks that I created. Please remember that this series like Enchanted night would be making on and off appearances.

Till then,

Ciao
