What you need to get this look is a little practice in makeup application, as well as the following colors and makeup products:
• Makeup base, foundation, concealer
• Eyebrow kit
• Eyeshadows in black, dusty rose, shades of blue, matte brown and light gold
• Blue cream eyeshadow
• Brown eye pencil
• Nude lip-gloss
• Makeup brushes
Step 1: While the entire focus is going to be put on your eyes, no less importance should be given to creating a flawless complexion. Not all of us are granted with a healthy and glowing skin, so it’s here that we need to trust on a quality foundation and try some precious makeup hacks. Make sure you start on a clean face, applying the makeup base first and then a lightweight tinted moisturizer or a long-lasting foundation depending on your preferences and the desired outcomes. You may start applying it with a foundation brush and then use a makeup sponge to perfectly set it and make it look more natural. Gently layer concealer on the problem spots and finish it all off with a loose powder to give that velvety texture to your skin. You then want to sculpt your face slightly with the right blush tone and you’re done with the most important step!
Step 2: You may follow this step or just skip it if you are a Cara Delevingne and always have eyebrows on fleek. Otherwise grab your eyebrow pencil and start filling in your brows giving that naturally bushy look to them.
Step 3: Now, start mapping the outer corner of your lid using a brown eye pencil. Gently smudge the line with a flat brush to make it perfectly blended. To intensify the cut apply a black eyeshadow and continue blending it (Noir from ABH).
Step 4: Apply a dark dusty rose color with a satin finish to the edges of the line on the upper lid (Labyrinth from ABH) and an electric blue color on the lower lid (Star Cobalt from ABH). Continue adding a touch of black to your eye makeup on the mobile lid to make the look more dramatic.
Step 5: You now need to apply a blue cream color to the first half of the mobile lid so that it gently touches the flick you have created (Ice Blue Waterproof Cream Color from ABH). Top this color with the same electric blue eyeshadow you used on your lower lid.
Step 6: Apply a metallic blue eyeshadow on the mobile lid (Icy from ABH) and blend all the edges of the eye makeup with a medium matte brown color (Fawn from ABH).
Step 7: To brighten up the look, apply a light gold eyeshadow to the brow bone and the inner corner of the eye close to the tear duct (Peach Sorbet from ABH).
Step 8: Finally apply a few layers of black mascara and finish off your makeup with a nude lip-gloss (Undressed and Pastel Pink lip-glosses from ABH).
