Metallic Blue (using wet eyeshadow)

Hey everyone!

Today's look is gonna be a metallic blue in the lid, and grey in the crease to bring up the smokiness. I was using a wet eyeshadow from Victoria Secret called Smokin', this is also can be used dry. I was using in wet because the color will look more vibrant, and for the grey eyeshadows, I was using an eyeshadow quad from e.l.f. in Drama, and it was only $1!

OK let's get started!

here is the look :)
Products I used:

VS Beauty Rush in Smokin'

e.l.f Eyeshadow Quad in Drama 

Steps by steps:

  1. Prime your eyes with Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance all over your eyes using your finger.
  2. Draw a line in your lid with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Slate, then blend it with your finger. 
  3. Spray Sigma E55 with MAC Fix+, then take Victoria Secret Beauty Rush eyeshadow in Smokin' and apply it in your lid.
  4. Grab e.l.f. eyeshadow quad in Drama, and apply Eyeshadow #1 slightly in your crease using Sigma E35
  5. To get smokier look, take eyeshadow #2, and apply it in the outer corner of your eyes with Sigma E35. Then, blend it back and forth until there is no harsh line. Use Sigma E40 to blend. 
  6. Highlight under your eyebrow with eyeshadow #3 with Sigma E40
  7. Spray Sigma E30 with MAC Fix+, then line your lower lash line with Smokin' eyeshadow. 
  8. Line your upper lash line with Stila Kajal Eyeliner in Onyx. Then, blend it with Sigma E30
  9. Line your water line with Stila Kajal Eyeliner in Onyx also. 
  10. Curl your lashes and apply your favorite mascara! 
You're done with the eyes! 

Now to the face...

Steps by steps:
  1. Apply your favorite foundation all over your face with Sigma F84. I used BB Cream from Missha M Perfect BB Cream #23
  2. Cover your dark circles with Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Medium with Sigma F70. Then, blend it with your ring finger. 
  3. Pat Palladio Rice Powder in Natural with a powder puff. 
  4. Mix Benefit Hoola Bronzer and NARS Laguna Bronzer, then contour your cheeks with MAC 109
  5. Sweep your favorite soft pink blush in the apple of your cheeks. 
  6. Spray Urban Decay All Nighter for a long lasting look! 
You're all done! 

I can't find VS Beauty Rush Smokin' eyeshadow online anymore, except on eBay. You can use any metallic blue eyeshadows like: MAC Contrast, L'Oreal HIP Shadow Duos in Mischief (the blue part), etc - there are tons of blue metallic eyeshadow out there :)
