Evening make up - bright blue eyes and pale pink lips

There are soooo many options for make up when you're going out at night.   This look is bright yet dark blue eyeshadow with pale pink lips and some pink sparkle for your face.  This is definitely an evening look, not something that I'd wear during the day. 

Here are the products that I used:
Urban Decay primer potion for eyes
MAC eye shadow in Moonlit Reflection
MAC eye shadow in Peacocky
MAC eye shadow in Deep Truth
MAC eye shadow in Wonder Full
MAC liquidlast eye liner in Inky
Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil in Zero
Maybelline Falsies mascara
MAC Snob lipstick
MAC Lustre glass in Morning Glory
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish (I have Pink Porcelain which is no longer available)
Make Up For Ever's Full Cover concealer
Make Up For Ever's Mat Velvet foundation



 I brushed a pale sparkly blue across the middle of my eye lid.

I put a bright blue on the inner and outer corners of my eyes. (sorry for the blurry photo!)

I brushed a dark but bright blue in the crease of my eye, which gives it dimension.


I brushed a pale blue under the arch of my eye brows to highlight my eyes.
I use a fluffy brush to blend my shadows

I lined my upper eyes with MAC's liquidlast eye liner in a navy blue, which is a little hard for me since the skin on my eyes is getting loose.  If you're younger it will go on much more smoothly

I used Urban Decay's 24/7 eye pencil (black) to line the inside of my lower eyes.  I use it because it's waterproof, and it glides on without pulling on your skin.

Use a flat brush to smudge some of the darker shadow under your eye as well.

I forgot to take photos of me putting mascara on, but I'm sure most of you are familiar with that process.
Here's how the finished eye looks, closed and open.


I used a light pink lipstick, and a pink gloss

I added MAC's Mineralize Skin Finish to give my skin a little glow



Add your favorite jewelry and you're ready to go!
