Makeup For Blue Eyes - Sultry Makeup




Hey Y’all!
Rusty Red and Brown Look - Sultry MakeupHere is this week’s look! I wore this look to my sister-in-law’s wedding, and everyone loved it. It is so simple, easy and sultry. I felt so unbelievably sexy while wearing this look. The rusty red eyeshadow, and the brown I used in this look are great colors for blue eyes.

Rusty Red and Brown Look - Sultry MakeupI used a City Color Eyeshadow Trio in Falling  Leaves. This palette runs around $14, and I have linked to amazon where you can purchase it. If you want to use a different palette with similar colors, that’s fine also. The trick to this look is the rust tones in the eyeshadows. Rusty red or brown shades do wonders for blue eyes, but I think this look will flatter any color eye. I also used a touch of black eye shadow from The Ipsy NYX 3 Color Eye Shadow Palette Neutral Trio.

To begin I did my full-face foundation, and my eye brows. This consists of the usual moisturizer, primer and foundation. I set my foundation with my e.l.f. Tone Adjusting powder, and I used a dark-ish color on my brows.

Rough huh? Don’t worry it gets better!

The first color I used is the beautiful rust/red color, and I applied it over the whole lid up to the top of the crease. I also took a smaller brush and covered my lash line across the whole bottom of the eye. This line of color can be fairly thick at the outer corner, because we are going to add more color there in the next step. Be sure that your eyes have been primed, or the colors may not show up as vividly as you desire. This color is the matte shade in the trio. See how the blue already looks amazing against this shade?







For the second step, I used the darker City Colors shade. It is a beautiful shimmery shade that is not too dark. The three colors in this trio complement each other nicely. I assume that is why they come together. Take this shade and follow your crease from the inner corner of the eye all the way out. Try to make an almond shape with the outer corner as shown, and bring the color halfway across your bottom lash line on top of the first color. I find that if you flick the color up at the corner of your eye it gives you an easy line to follow to make the correct shape.

After you are satisfied with the second color take a clean brush and blend around the outside edge of the eye shadow all the way around your eye. You can lightly run the clean brush over the harsh lines, or pat the edges with the brush. This is really just a personal preference, there is no wrong way to do it. Just be sure not to wipe away the eye shadow you have so carefully and painstakingly applied. Once you are satisfied with your blending, take another clean brush (I like an angled brush because you can more easily follow your eyebrow) and sweep the last color from your City Color Eyeshadow Trio underneath your brow and down to the top of the darker shadow in your crease. This color is just a shimmery flesh color that helps with dimension and blending.

Liquid and cream liners seem to produce a sharper line, and are less likely to smudge. As you move towards the outer corner of your eye you want the line to become slightly thicker. This creates a more open and rounder looking eye. Once you get to the corner of your eye I always like to add a tiny flick, so that when you line the bottom it looks more seamless and connected. Line the outer third of your bottom lash line, and it looks nice if you smudge just a little. Be sure and connect the bottom line with the top liner. If you’re unsure how to make this look right, apply the liner on the bottom outer corner, bringing it up and out a small bit. Never line straight out from the bottom of your eye. It makes them appear droopy.

If you use a liquid or cream liner let it dry for a few seconds. This is where we will use the NYX Eyeshadow. Dip a small brush very lightly into the black eyeshadow and tap it onto the outer corner of your eye just above the eyeliner. It doesn’t take much, so start small to avoid putting too much. If it looks spotty or uneven, tap a little more in there. You can swirl your brush back and forth just a bit to blend and make the colors more seamless. Be careful with black shadow. It’s tricky. Also brush the black on top of the bottom liner you applied in the last step. Add your favorite black mascara, tap some highlighter just under the arch of the brow, and voila!
