This is a classic blue turquoise look which is omnipresent throughout the ear and everyone comes out with a different version of theirs. Since it is so shimmer packed and tantalizing, I wanted to put it as a Holiday look for Winter 2012. Those hither thither silvery sparkles in the entire eye makeup look very amazing (unfortunately not captured in camera).
This is a lovely and an extremely easy look to pull and looks pretty on all. So lets see how to do this look......
I have used the BH cosmetics 88 Tropical Shimmer palette to do this look. BH cosmetics take their palettes very seriously and this is an epitomy of it. The colors are gorgeous and very sparkly and lustrous.
Conceal the under eyes to take care of any dark circles. The under eyes look dewy because of not using powder. Just a concealer and a layer of foundation over it. When this was shot, the under eye area was very well moisturized which is why it looks so dewy.
Apply a layer of Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadow in Tenacious teal on the entire lid. This is a lovely turquoise blue and looks very vibrant and amazing.
Apply layers to intensify the color but do not go over the board as it may look a bit tacky. I have used fingers to apply the color as they help melt down the product and help spread well.
Apply Maybelline Color tattoo eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze in the crease. This helps creating a darker crease. These eyeshadows are so good that they can be used on their own too as they adhere to the skin so well.
Apply a light warm bronze on the outer corners and the crease and blend with a dome shaped eyeshadow brush or MAC 217 brush.
Apply this warm bronze eyeshadow on the lower lids in the outer half and smudge.
Apply a darker bronze shade in the same family on the outer corners of the lids and blend into crease.
Apply a light sky blue eyeshadow over the impression of the aqua blue on the lid (from the Maybelline color tattoo in Tenacious Teal). Pat the eyeshadow with fingers for the shimmer to show through very well.
Apply shimmery charcoal on the outer corners to create dimension. It need not be very defined but just a haze.
Highlight the inner corners and the brow bone with a peachy white beige (almost translates white in the inner corners).
Line the inner rims with NYX Pencil in Gyspy blue for a pop of color. This looks quite amazing instead of a black.
Curl the lashes, tame the brows and apply 2 coats of Rimmel Glam'Eyes mascara to get longer yet defined lashes.
To keep this look quite modern, contour and use a shimmery champagne highlighter to highlight the key areas of the face. Finish off with a lovely pink lipstick or go for a fiery magenta pink for a bold impact.
