Old Blue Eyes!

Hey guys! Gemma here! Can I just start by saying how much I am hating uni right now?!? It is stressing me out to the max and I am counting down the days until summer!

I always intend to put my eye make up looks up here but never do because I just don't think there is a nice way of photographing my eye. But I've decided to ignore that and just go for it.

So as Laura and I were going to a gig last night, I decided to practice a look that I wanted to do for a night out on Saturday. I am wearing the blue and white Missguided dress from my Haulin' post and knew that I wanted to incorporate blue into my eye look. However I didn't want to go for a full blue shadow look as I do that quite often for nights out (as often as you can use blue shadow, which really isn't all that much). Here is what I came up with...









For this look I simply applied MAC's 'Wedge' all over the lid with my 224 brush so it was really blended and and not structured. I then used Maybelline's gel liner on both my top lash line and in my waterline. I done the top line a lot thicker than I normally do and added a wing which I NEVER do as normally I don't think I suit it but as I was adding a lot underneath my bottom lash line I thought it would work well. I then took my Maybelline Color Tattoo in 'Turquoise Forver' which is so so gorgeous and really doesn't get enough love! I thought I would add a little something something to my inner corner so I applied MAC's 'Vex' just for a little sparkle. I really liked how it was starting to look but then out the corner of my eye I noticed my 219 brush had some black shadow on it from a previous night. I didn't add anymore product to the brush and just ran it slightly through my crease just for some definition. Finally I added some mascara and I was done!

I really liked the outcome of this look, it is so much fun just sitting down and seeing what you can come up with!

What did you guys think of this look?

Let me know!
