EOTD: Graphic Teal and Blue.

Sometimes I do pretty makeup, but there are days when I just want to put on over the top, I-really-hope-no-one-rings-the-doorbell-right-now makeup.  Today is one of those days, LOL! ;)

Swatches (from left): joe fresh Peacock, Annabelle B-Ray, blue from CARGO Venice quad, MAC Arena, MAC Soft Brown

Get the Look

  1. Start with an eye primer (Urban Decay Primer Potion) all over the lids up to the brows to make colours appear as vibrant as possible.
  2. With a flat synthetic brush, pick up an icy blue (blue eyeshadow from CARGO Venice) and apply to the inner third of the lid and inner third of lower lash line.
  3. Flip the brush over, then take a matte teal (joe fresh Peacock) to the outer two-thirds of the lid and middle of the lower lash line.  Blend the two colours where they meet.
  4. Then, using a pointed crease brush (MAC 226), trace out the wing with a deep matte navy (Annabelle B-Ray).  Fill in the wing on the outer third of the lid.  Line the outer third of the lower lash line.
  5. Take a fine tipped liner brush and emphasize the shape of the wing with the same navy eyeshadow.  See pictures for details, it’s kinda hard to explain.
  6. I didn’t like the blue inner corner highlight on its own, so I applied a shimmery peach (MAC Arena) on top.  Highlight the brow bone as well.
  7. Blend lightly above the navy with a mid-tone warm brown eyeshadow (MAC Soft Brown).
  8. Line the upper lash line and waterline with black eyeliner (MAC Blacktrack Fluidline).
  9. Apply mascara, and false lashes (Ardell 120 Demi) if you like.

More Pictures!

Would You Wear It?

I might wear this out if I’m going out for an evening with the girls, but other than that it’s a little too crazy for daytime. :)  What do you think?

What is everyone up to these days?  It’s been a relaxing weekend for me, just hanging out with Scherbatsky while BF is off gallivanting with the boys for a stag party, LOL!  They are probably up to no good, as always.

    oooh this would be so good for a night out. I love your eye looks with the winged out shadow, and dudee I do that too sometimes where I’ll just do some over the top makeup and walk around the house in it :)

      LOL thank you for making me feel better. However when I do an EOTD I only do one eye so it looks so weird. I took this off right after I took the pics. :)

    This is so cute, Arianne! :) But yah, it’s pretty heavy — in a good way, though!

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Hehe I thought you would recognize B-Ray right away. :P

    Ooh you’ve done this really well. I’m rubbish at creating graphic eyes! By the way, I got really confused when I first saw the first photo (on my iPhone btw – nice mobile site!) because for a second I thought it was *my* eye. And I was like “eh? but I’ve never done make-up like this before…”

    We have similar eye shapes and eyebrows when you see one close-up eye at a time!

      Thanks! :)

      Oh yeah, never noticed that! Our eye shapes are similar, and our brows are like TWINS! LOL! :P

      The teal especially will be AMAZING on everyone, I just know it. Try it out; I’d love to see what you come up with.

    YAY – I’m touring beauty blogs again! =)

    Looks beautiful! Nice to see you go “hot & heavy” ;o)

    I think you mean to write “B-Rae” for the Annabelle Custom Quad LE ES :oP.

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Thanks! :) And when are you bringing B-Rae back?!?! I think I at least speak for myself and Rae that this needs to be PERMANENT.

        I second this statement! :D

    This post reminded me that I have been neglecting my Annabelle B-Ray eye shadow.

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Hahaha! Give B-Ray some love girl! Or else I won’t ever send you Canadian goodies anymore. :P

      Thanks. :) Too bad I only did one eye. It would’ve been nice to show a face shot.
