Smoky Brown with Electric-Blue Liner (Bourjois Intense Extrait 08 and Regard Effet Metallise 54 Bleu Clinquant)

—-

This is a super-simple way to dress up browns without piling on a whole lot of color. If you enjoy wearing color along your lash line, this is also a way to get it to to stay longer and more intense along the waterline. 

I used a lot of Bourjois in this look (uninentionally, but aside from the electric blue pencil, it’s easy to find lots of alternatives and many makeup wearer should already have similar shades in their collection).

—-

Step 1: Apply a brown or nude base to the entire lid, thinning out towards the brow bones. I used MAC Cream Color Base in Take Root.

—-

Step 2: Run a metallic chocolate pencil along the upper and lower lash lines, drawing it thick  on the bottom lashes. I used Boujois Regard Effet Metallise Pencil in Brun Inoxydable.

—-

Step 3: Pack a rich russet brown (Bourjois Intense Extrait Shadow #08) over the entire lid, blending above the socket  and  upwards toward the brow at the inner corners for a slightly more doe-eyed effect.

—-

Step 4: Run a metallic cyan blue (Bourjois Regard Effet Metalise in 54 Bleu Clinquant is one of the most gorgeous I’ve seen) along the water line. You will need to go over your waterline about twice to even out and pack on the color.

—-

Step 5: To intensify, set and stop the blue liner from fading due to the moisture from your eyes, use a flat brush to carefully pack a translucent aqua-blue shimmer or micro-glitter (try MAC Reflects Transparent Teal) onto the water line, over the blue pencil. This gives a very intense sparkle.

—-

Step 6: Apply black along the tide line (upper lashes) and apply black mascara to finish.

—-

Step 7: For the cheeks I applied pink blush, and then on the lips, I layered a pale nude lipstick (Barry M 154 Pale Nude - or any concealer-nude shade you have) and a bright peachy-pink (Barry M 153 Pink Ribbon - this is almost an exact dupe for MAC’s Amplified Lipstick in Chatterbox so use that if you don’t have access to Barry M).

You can also just apply a pink gloss over a nude lipstick if you want something with more sheen.
