I was browsing through Kim Kardashian’s pictures when I saw this professional one (below). I fell in love with her make-up and thought I’d try and recreate the look to the best of my ability. I hope I’ve done it justice and please bear in mind that her pictures are professional and mine... aren’t lol. The frosty blue tones look amazing on brown eyes.
This is my version of the look and there is also pictures of the products I’ve used. With my step by step Guide:
I always without fail use an eye cream before I apply my foundation/Concealer. This helps moisturise the eye area and prevent that “cracked” look if you have dry skin like I do. I then applied the Maybelline “The Smoother” primer all over sparingly. I really recommend this product, it makes your skin feel like silk and is a really good base. I then applied my Rimmel “Lasting Finish” in 200 Soft Beige. I wouldn’t recommend it for Oily skin but is perfect for dry skin like mine as it does hydrate it like it says on the bottle. It gives a medium/full cover up depending on how much you put on. I apply the concealer after the foundation as this gives a better cover up and lasts longer. I used the No7 Trio Concealer (medium colour) under the eyes and all over the lid to give a good clean base for the eye shadow, this also helps the eye shadow to stand out more and lasts longer. You can also apply a tiny bit of translucent powder over the lid and under the eyes, which is what I usually do.
I applied a light frosted blue colour on the bottom half of my eye lid from the inner corner all the way to the outer corner, a good tip is to dap your eye shadow brush on a wet wipe then apply the blue colour so this gives you a more intense colour, I used Cerulean from my FrontCover Rainbow eyes Pallete, (pictures below). Before I applied the crease colour I highlighted my brow bone, inner corner of my eye and waterline with soap and glory highlighter which is a matt crayon colour. It’s really intense and is perfect for this look because as you can see in this photo the inner corner and brow bone stand out. I went over the highlight colour with “Sellout” from the urban decay book of shadows just to give the highlight colour more of a pop. A good trick for your crease colour is to use two colours. I used a light brown first in the crease but extended it a little further near the upper lid, then used a darker brown and used that more precisely on the crease to create a shaded effect. I used “YDK” for the lighter brown colour and “Twice Baked” for the darker brown, both from the urban decay book of shadows. I then took a thin brush and used “Twice Baked” to line my lower lid.
I lined my eyes with Mac Blacktrack Fluid Line which lasts for ages and doesn’t smudge which is a bonus! I created a flick in the outer corner and this really makes your eyes pop even more. I curled my lashes and applied Rimmels “Volume Flash”. I’m not even exaggerating when I say that this is best mascara I have ever tried. I’m a big fan of mascara and have been using different ones over the years, and this is the one I always come back to. It’s both volumising and lengthening. I do apply a few coats. And a good trick is to apply your first coat and when its semi-dry apply another one. This holds onto the mascara and gives you bigger lashes! And to finish of defined brows are a must for this look! I used Rimmels eyebrow pencil in 001 Dark Brown.
