Shimmering blue eye makeup tutorial for Asian skin /dark skin

August 17, 2015
I create a blue eye makeup tutorial for Asian skin. In real time of course…

Blue eye makeup for Asian skin, yay or nay?

Another experimental makeup tutorial from me. This time it’s in preparation for a wedding. After all, what better way to get ready for a wedding then to try a makeup look I’ve never done before and record it in real time for posterity?

Now I’m not exaggerating here when I say I’ve NEVER created a blue eye makeup look. I just find that the shade doesn’t flatter my skintone, or the colour just doesn’t show up.  For years I’ve tried chalky shades. They have either faded, gone into my creases or simply not shown up.

But after all these years I’ve uncovered the secret.  All these years I’ve been going wrong with my base…

This look uses the secret makeup artist technique of a black base, onto which lighter blue is added.
The final look is bold, shimmery, smokey and works great with pared down cheeks and pink lips.
