The Look: Blue Eyeliner & Orange Lips

I’ve wanted to try this look for ages so decided to play around and give it ago and I really like how it turned out. ‘Scuse the brows y’all, they’re in dire need of a thread!

Also a little annoyed with how the base turned out, I really wanted it to be super bronzed and glowy but my contour went slight patchy on my cheeks for some reason. Laaaaame.

For the eyes & lips I used:

  • Laura Mercier Crème Eyeliner in Cobalt*
  • MAC Matte Lipstick in So Chaud

Grungey Smokey Eye Fail!

So back in August I spent ages filming this look and I got very sweaty and kept having to make space in the memory card and it took ages and then I kind of forgot all about it.

Having since been to California and brought back loads of swag I wanted go film a US beauty haul but thought I’d better get the smokey eye up first since I’d filmed it so long ago and it was such a ball ache. Well today I finally start to get round to it and half the bloody footage wont upload to my laptop!! Anyway after much Googling and messing around it looks like its not meant to be so I thought rather than waste the look (which I think turned out pretty good) I’d post the pictures at least.

The basic method is to use a black gel liner or pencil to cover the mobile lid and smudge out the edges. Then go over it with a back or dark grey eyeshadow and then use a slightly lighter shade of grey in the crease and to blend out all the edges. Then just run the darker shadow onto the lower lash line and add eyeliner and mascara. To finish off add a pale/ bone coloured shadow to the brow bone to highlight, I kept it matte but you could use a shimmery shade to make it slightly more glam. Quick, easy and effective and as it’s a grungey look it really doesn’t need to look perfect, the slight messiness adds to it.

Bronzing vs Contouring

Video

*WATCH IN HD!* A video showing you the subtle differences between bronzing and contouring and how I personally like to do it. (Obviously this is a very subtle, natural way of doing both and some people do prefer a much stronger look which is also great, this is just how I do it day to day.) Hope you enjoy it!
