Holiday Look #6: Alluvium Blues Eyeshadow Tutorial (Illamasqua Alluvium pigment and MAC Crystal shadow)
If you have close-set eyes, a winged eyeshadow look where the emphasis is on elongating the outer corners and brightening the inner corners helps to balance it out.
In this look, I’m playing with a gorgeous blue loose powder pigment from Illamasqua called Alluvium. Unfortunately, the full dimensions aren’t visible on camera but it’s a deep indigo blue with gorgeous olive, gold, and copper flecks. (See the image of the pigment jar and you’ll know what I mean!)
This is a look that you can do whether you have double or mono lids.
Base/Concealer - Vichy Dermablend Fluid Foundation #25
Setting powder - Bourjois Poudre de Riz de Java
Eye primer - Benefit Stay Flawless (when working with loose pigments, it’s usually a must to have a slightly tacky base on the lids so the powders adhere properly and provide maximum intensity)
Beige base - MAC Metal-X Cream Shadow in Palladium (any soft shimmery champagne or beige will work)
Black cream - Shahnaz Husain black kajal
Deep blue shadow - Illamasqua Alluvium
Pale lilac shadow - MAC Crystal
Deep green - MAC When in Rio (this is limited edition, so try NYX Hunter Green(
Black liquid liner - HeroineMake Impact Liquid Eyeliner
Navy blue pencil - I used MAC Blooz (discontinued), but a navy blue should be pretty easy to dupe!
Mascara - Lancôme Hypnôse mascara in black
