Blue Smokey

Hi everyone,

You guys wanted to see this blue eye as a tutorial:

I did this tutorial in bright and sunlight, so it looks a lot brighter then it is if you were to look at it in the shade... but in the shade I have to use a flash so that would undo the whole shade idea so.... imagine the colours being more muted then they are on my eye.
Final eye:

I'm going to do this tutorial with minimal writing because I need to go to sleep. I hope you guys like this step by step guide to the blue smokey eye.

Products I used on my eye:

(Laura Mercier eyelashcurler - Christian Dior 5 Coleurs in 140 Twilight - Dior Iconic Mascara in black - MAC pigment in Blue Storm - MAC 217 brush - Sephora Smudge brush - Sephora big eyeshadow brush - MAC paintpot in Soft Ochre - Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencils in Zero and Binge)

Eye with eyecream:

Soft Ochre Paint Pot by MAC as a base colour:

Binge Pencil as a colour base:

(apply to lid - blend crease with finger)

Apply the darkest blue from Twilight on the lid with the big eyeshadow brush and blend out with a blending brush.

Apply the lighter blue on top (blend to the crease but don't blend as high as the first blue you used)

Apply MAC Blue storm over the blue to bring a slight sparkle to the blue. (Adding colour tints over one another adds depth to the colour):

Curl lashes, add Zero liner to the waterlines and add mascara:

In direct sunlight:

I hope you enjoyed this picture tutorial.

Have a great Monday everyone!
