Blue and Purple Ice Eyes

I am really excited. More like extremely happy. Your question of the moment might be, why? My reason is simple: I finally paired blue and purple eyeshadow together. And it worked. Yes, I understand that this is not major news, but it is amazing for me! I have always added either blue or purple to a look. I have finally conquered my form of impossible and put them together. I need to get some new hobbies.

Anyways, let's go ahead and get started!

Start by priming the eyes. I decided on MAC's Nubile paint pot to give me a neutral base.

                                                                        Next, apply a shimmery lavender shade all over the lid. I used to have issues with lavenders; I felt as though they were too youthful. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I did not want to get stuck in that Libby Lu makeup rut. By pairing this soft purple with bold blues, it makes it more of an elegant accessory.

I wanted to incorporate a brighter pop of color, so I used MAC's Freshwater. This look can be worn any time of the year, but you all know how I love my seasonal makeup! I used a small strip of tape to ensure that I would get a clean line of shadow. Make sure to stick the tape on the back of your hand a few times to make it easier on the skin. This removes any added tackiness to the tape which can pull at the skin causing premature wrinkles. I applied this with an angled shadow brush to my crease in a cat eye motion as well as the outer half of my waterline.

To finish off the cat eye wing, apply a thin line of a bright blue liquid liner to the upper lash line.

I combined MAC's Deep Truth and Satellite Dreams to set the eyeliner. This was easily applied with an angle brush to get the winged curve.

Blend out Freshwater with a blending brush, or use another color to fade it out. I used Stars n' Rockets with a fluffy crease brush to blend the colors out. This shade has a beautiful blue duo-chrome to it, making it more blendable.

I wanted to save the highlighting for last to get that fresh glow to the eyes. I first applied an white, opaque cream shadow to my brow bone and inner corner and then set it with a soft pink pigment. The iridescent shimmer in the pigment will catch the light, making you look wide awake.

Add mascara and the look is complete! Tell me in the comments what your look has been this winter, and make sure to follow. I am also excited about the forever fuchsia twitter account; it is a great way to interact with you all! Leave your twitter username in the comments if you have one so we can follow you!

 I have been using a different software to upload my pitures and post them. I also recieved a camera that I have been using for this post; is the quality better? I feel like you can really see the colors now, I love it! Feel free to request a post, and thanks for reading!
