As bright as it gets: Blue Hue EOTD

Monday, March 8, 2010

I promised a stunning blue EOTD, and I hope this delivers! I was just in love with the new Blue Hue trio from Annabelle, and I felt the need to feature it in a look — and while it’s not something I have the guts to wear out of the house (yet,) I do love it to death!


How-to:

Prep eye area. With a flat shader brush, foil a bright sky blue (from Blue Hue) shadow to your inner V. Clean excess pigment off the brush and foil a dark blue (from Blue Hue) to the outer 1/3 of the lid, lower lashline, and waterline. To blend these two together, pat a mid-toned blue (from Blue Hue) in the middle of your lid.


Blend with a fluffy brush and foil a vivid aquamarine-blue (Nymphet) over your mid-tone blue. Smudge this in the middle 1/3 of your lower lashline and on the inner 2/3 of your waterline as well! To intensify the outer V, pick up a small amount of a navy blue (B-Ray) with a pencil brush and slowly add depth, making sure to blend the shadow on your lid with your lower lashline.


Hilight under brow bone with a finely-milled shimmery ivory-white (Crème Lustré) and line your upper lashline (Blacktrack). Crimp lashes and apply mascara (Fiberwig). Clean up your under eye area and conceal! 

Products used:

Annabelle “Blue Hue” trio
Annabelle B-Ray and Nymphet pro pans
Lancome Crème Lustré


MAC Blacktrack fluidline
Imju Fiberwig over L’Oreal Lash Boosting Serum

Well – at this point, I don’t even care if you guys love this eye or not… I love it enough for all of us! ;) Sorry for not having full face photos; I had just done the one eye before washing my face off and taking an afternoon snooze. However, I can definitely see this looking great with peachy-pink cheeks  and pinky-peach lips. It would be just lovely!
