Happy Friday look + Tutorial: Smouldering Smokey Blue

I was feeling blue last Friday, so i decided to wear a dark smokey-ish blue for my "not-so-happy" Friday look. Also, i was inspired by xteener's youtube video tutorial i saw the night here's my version, i hope you like it:

1. Start by priming your lids with a primer. I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance topped with MAC paint pot in Soft Ochre

2. Apply NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil in Pacific all over lids. This would also serve as a base for your powdered eyeshadow and to help it become more vibrant. Blend it using fingers and don't worry if it's not perfect.

3. Using a flat shader blush, apply MAC Freshwater on the lids. Then using a big blending brush, blend it to get rid of harsh lines

4. Using a medium blending brush, apply MAC Carbon on the outer-V and pull it up until the crease. Blend it with Freshwater

5. Line the waterlines with Revlon Colorstay eyeliner in Blackest Black and using a smudger brush, smudge MAC Carbon on the lower lashlines. Then apply MAC fluidline in Blacktrack on the upper lashlines.

6. Using a bigger shader brush, apply MAC Shroom under the brow bones for highlight. Blend this with the colors on your lid and crease.

7. Curl lashes and apply Maybelline Cat Eyes mascara

8. Using a small shader brush, apply a shimmery white eyeshadow on the inner corners of the eyes, to give this look some brightness. Blend.

And you are done!

I love this look. Absolutely very pretty. Do you get stares from your coworkers when you show up to work wearing "bold" eye makeup? I get teased a lot

i just saw ur blog today and i'm hooked! i'm so happy to see a good filipina blog:)

btw, i have a question, where can I get that charm brush set? i'm stuck here in saudi and believe me, it's hellish for poor beauty addicts but a haven for the rich ones lol! i have my MAC brushes but I wanna get some cheaper alternatives so my babies won't get overworked when I'm practicing hehehe...Thanks and more power!
