Glamorous Midnight Blue Smokey Eye

Blue is my favorite color and I think it's one of the most flattering colors to use on the eyes in a bold party makeup look. I've heard so many people say that blue is a difficult color to work with so let me prove you wrong here! It's actually really the only colorful eyeshadow I use that's out of the neutral-earth toned sphere and I love it! This is usually the look I go for if I'm going out clubbing.

MAC Pigments: Warm Snow, Silver Fog, Naval Blue, Blues

I used all of the pigments above for this look. I bought them from MAC's holiday collection last year but I'm sure they have very similar ones if not even the same product but under different names. Pigments are a tad more difficult and messier to work with so if you're not feeling that I'd suggest using eyeshadows. However, they do deliver a more intense and amplified finish, especially when used wet!

The last time I was at Inglot I laid my eyes on their beautiful blue and grey eyeshadows - I have to go back there asap and do some damage...

Dark makeup like this requires glamorous and dramatic false eyelashes! Ardell falsies are my favorite. Btw, I really hope there's no one out there paying more than a few euros for (Ardell) lashes. I've actually seen stores retailing them for almost 10€ in Finland and I rolled my eyes so hard that I almost saw my brain. I order all of mine from Madame Madeleine at $2.60 each and currently they're having a -20% discount on Ardell lashes by using the code SHOPNSAVE at checkout & -18% sitewide by using the code CELEBRATE. You're welcome, ladies! ;)

Here's my in-depth post on false eyelashes.

If you're a beginner in the lash world or you generally have difficulties with falsies, I'd recommend getting something with a clear and thin band rather than a thick band like the above. Thick bands can be more difficult to work with - even for me! However, these are so glamorous that it's worth it! One of my favorites and what I usually wear are the #105's because they're super easy to put on and work well with both day and evening looks.

A baby pink lip paired with a blue smokey eye, MM-MM! My favorite combo! Pinks are blue based so that's why they look so good together. A neutral beigey glossy nude would also look good with this makeup.


Let me know what you think of this look! Does anyone else love a dark blue? Especially royal or electric blue as much as I do?!

    Katsoin aiempia videoita, missä kerroit urheilusta ja ruokailusta. Kerroit myös laihtuneesi. Voisitko toteuttaa useamman päivän ajalta ruokapäiväkirjaa, miten syöt/söit kun laihdutit? Joitko sinä aikana alkoholia? :D Itselleni suurena ongelmana on viikottaiset viini-illat, jota vaikea skippaa, kun tuntuu ettei muuten näkisi ystäviä ollenkaan.
    Kiitos jo etukäteen ja ihanaa joulua <3

    1. Heippa! Hyvä idea - laitan ylös ;) ja siis en juonut ja siitä se suurin ero oikeastaan tulikin, mutta lähinnä sen takia, että itselläni alkoholin kanssa menee yleensä siihen et syön enemmän tai jotain epäterveellistä/lihottavaa sen yhteydessä. Pelkästään muutama lasi viiniä viikossa ei haittaa mitn! (kysyin PT:ltäni tätä monesti hahaha), joten ei tarvi skipata niitä viini-iltoja kunhan ne ei joka kerta muutu mässäilyilloiksi/aamuiksi heh! ;)

      Aivan ihanaa joulua sinnekin! <3
