Face of the Day: Matte Electric Blue

By  |  29 Comments

Lately I’ve been trying to play with makeup I’ve neglected, and this was one of the days I really liked what I came up with! I wanted to play with some matte pigments I have that got shoved to the back of a drawer (they aren’t the beautiful mattes I reviewed a few weeks ago!) and was tempted to use this electric blue I saw. Unfortunately the brand I used isn’t around anymore, but this particular blue is super similar to Chaos in Urban Decay’s Vice Palette.  Blue eyeshadow is a hard nut to crack usually, as it can easily go into crazy 80’s look that isn’t exactly flattering. Since I was just playing around I didn’t write down everything I used (and this was from last week) But I did want to share photos I took in case anyone needed some inspiration. If you like the look maybe I’ll create a tutorial for it and try and use some similar items, haha :) Enjoy!

    That kind of looks like junkie in the crease… which I think is a great idea!

    please do a tutorial! Especially since blue eye shadow can be very scary if it isn’t done right and I would love to see how you created this!

    I agree, blue can be a tricky shade – I always feel like it competes with my mostly green eyes. The look you created is stunning though! Would love to see a tutorial for it!

    I’m a recently found you through the Urban Decay FB page. Love the tutorials and your looks. Do you wear this out or do you do just for your website?

    I love this look! I like how you put the gold underneath and the sparkly blue in the inner corner.

    I really love how this turned out, Leesha. Although it’s bright, you made it work so well. I might have to try something like this out. :)
