Back To The Blue Hue: I'm Fixated On Brights

I'll be the first one to admit that my style can be a little on the boring side, plain fashion and makeup is easier to put together as a look. Simple as that. Truth be told, I love bright colours and I doubly love bizarre statement fashion but it's just too much effort. 

Recently I've really been into blues and greens, today's post was nearly about glitter tears but instead I decided to mess around with some of my brighter shades. I think I've gravitated towards a mermaid theme once again but I'm not incredibly upset about that. When I get around to it I'll be doing a fresh face Spring makeup look but that will be in a a few weeks time because I'm not going to have enough time for that sort of post.

To create this funky look I went for a purple lower line to go with The Little Mermaid vibe I was feeling. Under the sea, baby! I think it sort of made the look more unusual so I ended up rolling with the idea. 

I did the funky purple lower line first and then used a green as the base. The flick was created with a sky blue shade and an angled brush but I blended the colours together at the crease. I guess the statement for this look was 'Go Big Or Go Home' because I rarely experiment with makeup like this. I extended the flick to give it a more stage like quality, I'm not great with flicks or eyeliner so it was good practice. 

The finished and blended look had a shimmery and glittery quality because as I layered it before neatening up the edges. I'm actually really pleased with the blending that I did on this one because it really doesn't look precise where the two colours meet.

I have some glittery shadow that doesn't appear too bold so two of the shades made a good top layer. The purple, however, didn't really require any additional effects because it was already shimmery. This was a fun experiment and as I always say when I come to the end of one of thse posts... I hope to be doing more like this. 

Well, thanks for reading this one. I hope you've enjoyed this one as it's one of my more creative pieces. I'd love some feedback and possibly a few suggestions for my next few posts. What would you like to see next?

  1. Oooo nice colours, I'm such a 'play-it-safe' kinda gal, forever gravitating towards nudes and neutral shades x

    1. I tend to stay neutral to be honest but it's fun to play with the different shades.

  3. These are definitey fun colors. Have you ever tried different color bases? I bet since they are sparkly doing like, a black pencil or a white (like NYX's milk) could add even more dimension/ creative looks!

    I generally stick to the smokey eye and variate color but I really like the artistic approach you took and want to do more "artistic" looks, myself!

    1. I usually stick to a block Base and then blend the glittery shadow into the crease, I just wanted to take a different approach to test the waters a bit.

      I'm pleased that I've inspired you into experimenting, I hope you have fun creating bolder more artistic looks. Xx
