Easy Steps to Get the Electric Blue Smokey Eyes Look
When it comes to eye makeup, blue is the new black. Not that the original grey Smokey eye look will ever go out of fashion, but it has become quite passé now. The blue Smokey eye look is more vibrant and fashionably edgy. It looks good on most skin tones and is perfect for a night about town. Experiment with different shades of blue eyeshadow and try out different blue eyeshadow looks. For starters, here are a few easy steps to help you get the electric blue Smokey eyes look with ease.
The first step to getting your eye makeup right is to create an even, flawless base. Over here, your base is your eyelids. To conceal blemishes and even-out crinkles, apply an eyeshadow primer and spread it uniformly over your entire eyelid.
The next step is to brush on a white eyeshadow base. This is necessary since white eyeshadow will help emphasize the colour and brightness of the blue eyeshadow that will be applied later on. Brush on white eyeshadow not just on your eyelids, but all the way up to your brow bone. Blend the eyeshadow well so that there are no blotches.
Once done, the next step is to apply on some glittering sliver eyeshadow. You could select a shimmering silver shade of your choice from Maybelline’s Diamond Glow Palette Grey – Pink Eyeshadow Range. Use a flat shader brush to apply silver eyeshadow on the inner corners of your eyes. Start from where your inner tear ducts are and cover one-third of your eyelids. Also apply sliver eyeshadow on the region surrounding your inner tear ducts. Dab off excess eyeshadow using clean tissues.
Now, select an electric blue eyeshadow shade and, using the same brush, apply it on the center of your eyelid. Spread it till it almost reaches the outer corner of your eyes. Apply some of the blue eyeshadow along your lower lash line as well.
To add dimension to your blue Smokey eye look, apply dark green eyeshadow on the outer corners of your eyes. Now, blend the three shades together using a sponge tip applicator. Put in a bit of effort here and ensure that the shades blend into each other well so that they don’t appear to exist in patches.
To complete your blue Smokey eyes look, line your upper and lower lash lines with a thick line of bright blue kajal. Use a water-proof kohl pencil for the same. Lastly, apply two coats of dark, water-proof mascara on your lashes.
There! Your Electric blue Smokey eyes look is complete. Now, slip on a shimmery top, dark denim pants and sky-high heels. You’re ready for a night of dancing and club hopping!
