Easy blue makeup look – tutorial

blue wing makeup



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!

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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.

How to: makeup for round deep set eyes



Different tricks work for different eye shapes. When determining your eye shape, you should look at the main features of your eyes and do your makeup accordingly. What do you want to emphasize? What do you want to hide?

Today I’m talking about round eyesand to be more specificround deep set eyes. Round eyes are gorgeous. They appear big and open. It’s totally fine to emphasize the roundness of the eye, but balancing the shape with a cat eye styled makeup works too.  It elongates the eye and balances the shape, making it appear more almond shaped.

Round eyes can also be protruding, in which case my post makeup for protruding eyes can be more helpful. But here my model’s eyes were more deep set. Her atopic skin actually sometimes makes her lids swell a bit, which makes her lids a bit hooded. Still, they appear big, as round eyes typically do. If your eye shape looks similar to my model’s, this post is for you!


You’ll find tutorials for deep set & hooded, downturned and protruding eyes on my blog.

How to: makeup for round deep set eyes

Here is a before and after where you can see the shape that I’m going for. Linda’s eye is pretty round in the inner part of the eye, so I’m balancing that out by bringing some definition to the outer part of the eye.

Here I’m trying to explain the shape even further. Normally the shape of the eye is pretty round, but when I shade it on the area shown with orange dots, I’m making the eye appear more almond shaped.

Obviously this is not the only way to apply eyeshadow to this particular eye shape. You could also emphasize the roundness of the eye and not make the V in the outer corner. But in my opinion, this style suits the eye.

  1. Contour the eye minimally in the crease using a light brown shade.
  2. Create a V-shape in the outer corner using a brown matte shade. Blend it well. You can also blend it more later once you have the lid color.
  3. Apply a shimmery lid color all over your lid. Blend the outer corner color to your shimmer lightly.
  4. Shade your lower lashline a bit using a light brown.
  5. Line your eyes and add mascara. Done.


I also have this more festive gold glitter makeup for you. Here I used warm colors.

This look I did earlier on Linda for a Makeup Monday post, but the photos didn’t turn quite right. In hindsight, since my model’s eyes are a bit deep set, I shouldn’t have brought the shadow on the lid as far as I did here. Oh well. It was still a nice look and most important thing – my model was happy.

  1. Prime the eye. Start shading the crease and outer corner with a warm orange shade and blend well. Don’t pull the shadow too high, but just enough, so that some of it shows when the eye is open. Leave the lid bare (for glitter!)
  2. Slowly deepen that color by choosing a darker color than the one you used before. The darkest color is dark brown and that should be concentrated only on the outer corner and outer part of the lid, to get that elongated eye effect.
  3. Finally add glitter glue and press glitter on the lid. If you don’t have glitter, a shimmery eyeshadow will also look gorgeous applied on top of a glitter glue.
  4. Line the eye with a black pencil and add mascara. Done.
