Weekend Face of The Day: Intense peacock blue lids with MAC Tilt shadow

Instant intensity without a whole lot of work!

After months of being lazy and just using neutrals out, I’ve been into strong blue-tones on the lid recently. To make sure I don’t look like a bad interpretation of a Disney Villain, I turn it into a colored smoky eye and keep it from being too dramatic by restricting the color below the socket line.

This isn’t a tutorial because it’s simply buffing a duochrome blue-green shadow over a black base. (Leave the outer corners black.)

Products Used:

  • MAC Face & Body Foundation - C2
  • MAC Studio Finish Concealer NW20 + C25
  • Stila Hydrating Finishing Powder to set foundation
  • Shu Uemura Hard Formula 9 brow pencil in Seal Brown to fill in brows
  • MAC Browset in Mink to groom and set brows
  • Shahnaz Husain black kajal all over as base, then later as liner
  • MAC Tilt shadow over tthe black kajal/base, leaving only outer corners black
  • Tiny touch of MAC Shimmermint on the inner corners just for some brightness
  • L’oreal Voluminous Mascara in Blackest Black
  • MAC Well-Dressed blush (just a touch)
  • Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum stroked over clear lip balm for just a hint of pink

I always find it funny how the list looks incredibly long even when you use just one item per area (brows, lids, lash, skin, spots, cheeks, lips)

violet-moreviolence: Thanks hun! (I actually haven’t colored, applied or done anything more than shampoo the roots for the last 2 years, LOL!!)

arabiansailor , charmingortedious : Aww, thanks you guys…

conner-and-murphy: LOL who doesn’t right? I gravitate towards anything metallic.
