Instead of opting for a neutral strong look I decided to add a bit of colour to make the eyes really stand out. Here I have a step by step tutorial on how to achieve a vibrant blue look. If you have any requests or questions please leave a comment.
To start I applied Two Faced Shadow Insurance from lid to brow. This is an eyeshadow primer to prolong your chosen eye look and intensify colour. I then added Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in 'Bone' underneath the brows and Inglot eyeshadow in No.428 to the inner part of the lid and partially underneath.
Then I applied MAC's 'Copperplate' to the crease area making sure to blend well. This will help fade the darker shadow.
MAC's eyeshadow in 'Contrast' was then applied to the entire lid and blended both into the crease and lighter blue shadow.
Instead of using a darker colour underneath I continued to use Inglot's eyeshadow in No.428 along the lower lash line. A small amount of 'Contrast' was also used along the outer part of the lower lid to join all the colours together. Sephora's waterproof eyeliner in 'Shimmer Navy' was used along the waterline.
To make the lashes appear fuller and standout I applied a small amount of lnglot's gel liner in Black along the upper lash line. I then used Clarins Perfect Wonder mascara in Black and Clarins eyebrow pencil in 'Light Brown'.
For a bit of sparkle I used Collection 2000 Glam Crystals eye liner No.6 in 'Night Fever' on top of the vibrant blue underneath using a very small synthetic brush. I like to use these types of glitter on finer areas of the face as there is alot more control.
For this tutorial I used Sigma Brushes.
