Blue and gold is one of my favourite colour combinations, and after a long and hard decision making I went with a blue and gold smoky eye for my 24th birthday. I enjoyed creating this smoky eye since I haven’t done one in a while. I quite like how it turned out.

Get the Look
For the eyes, pat a gold eyeshadow (UD Half Baked) all over the inner two thirds of the lid. Run the same eyeshadow on the inner one third of the lower lash line. Pat a vibrant shimmery blue (MUFE 167) on the outer one third of the lid, and blend into the gold. On the outer V and crease, apply a matte dark navy (Annabelle B-Ray) in a cat eye shape and blend. Smudge the same eyeshadow on the outer two thirds of the lower lash line. To deepen the navy, go over it with a deep cool brown (MAC Brun) on the outer crease and lower lash line. Soften the blue eyeshadow by blending a medium warm matte brown (MAC Soft Brown) above the navy. Highlight the brow bone with a shimmery beige (MAC All That Glitters).
Line the waterlines and upper lash line with a black eyeliner (Urban Decay Zero). Add some false lashes (Ardell Wispies) and mascara (Marcelle Power Volume mascara) to the top lashes.
For the cheeks, contour the hollows of the cheeks with a dark matte brown (MAKE UP FOR EVER #17 Espresso Eyeshadow). Apply a brownish peach blush (MAC Cantaloupe) on the apples of your cheeks. Highlight the cheekbones with a shimmery gold (MAC Gold Studio Finish Face Powder).
I hope you are all enjoying the Holidays! Did you receive anything good from your loved ones?
