I love blue eyeshadow, even though it’s not the most conventional color. I like to do a full blue makeup, but using just a touch of blue also works. In this look I used blue eyeshadow to create a wing. I paired the look with light pink. Sometimes things escalate to glitter (you know how it is), so I also ended up finishing the look with a glittery inner corner.
If you’re into blue eyeshadow too, I have a video tutorial for another blue look on my IG TV here!
Blue winged eyeshadow makeup tutorial
- Prime your eye. Contour/shade your eye a bit using a light brown. This is optional, but for my deep set eyes it really helps to balance the eye. I shaded the area above my actual crease and slightly below my brow bone. If you look at the photos closely, you’ll see the difference.
- Add some light brown on your lower lashline as well, so that it doesn’t look too bare with all the color happening on your lid.
- Add blue eyeshadow in a winged shape to your outer corner. If you have deep set or hooded eyes, chances are, that an actual winged liner is very tricky. However, a wing shape done with eyeshadow like this is easy to do and works wonders! Blend the edges of that blue color minimally, but keep it quite focused.
- Add light pink to the rest of your lid and blend it together with the blue. I didn’t blend too much, because I wanted to keep the colors separate. If you blended a bit more, you could create a purple color between the colors!
- Line your eye, add inner corner highlight and some glitter. Add mascara and you’re done.
For this look I used one of my favorite blue-containing palette – *NYX Perfect Filter Marine Layer. It has gorgeous colors! Besides these beautiful blues and pink – it has a the most amazing duochrome purple-teal color in it.
For the glitter I used NYX Glitter Primer and glitters from Colourpop and OCC.
A blue look I did, when I got the palette in 2017. My makeup style has evolved quite a bit from this.
