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. 

Products used:

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
