Fall/Winter makeup trend: Blue Smokey eyes FOTD

Hi everyone!

Keeping up with fall/winter makeup trends of smokey eyes, here’s a look I pulled together today. Since I’m going for intense blue smokey eyes, I’m pairing it with neutral peachy-brownish tint on lips and cheeks.

Variants of blue shades suit most brown/black/grey eyed women and I decided to go for deep blue color as I have brown black eyes.

  1. This is a really pretty look 🙂 I like the shape of the Borjouis eyeshadow.

  2. i LOVVVEEEEEEE what you have done!!! i love love lovee it! now me going to copy cat it!:P

  3. i dont really have many blues some lakme quads.. lets see if that’ll work.. 😛 but i’ll definitely show you how it turns out! i wanted the Nyx midnight blue.. i hope i get more makeup and a new camera!:P but once again, you’ve done an amazing job!:*

    • Thanks once again, you’re really sweet 🙂 . I wanted NYX ‘marine blue’ since forever but then I found this Bourjois one and really liked the color and pigmentation. Try smudging a black pencil/kohl on the eyelids first and then apply the shadow for any smokey look- it gives a really nice intense effect.

      • 😀 thank you!!!!!! oh yes i’ll definite;ly go check Bourjois out!! and i do the same black pencil smudging trick!:D:D i have been wanting a pretty midnight blue and a a jhatak shimmery green forever!:P:D i am mad too.. 😛

      • 🙂 🙂 Tell me if you find a nice green, I want a shimmery green too. I have a matte/satin one from BeYu and its pretty nice…forest green kind of shade.Try NYX ‘marine blue’ if you can get your hands on it..I’ve seen it in Youtube vids and its looks awesome!

  4. Wow!!! Blue smokey eyes are looking ‘ekdum’ professional . Can’t belive this good makeup can be done at home – I thought only parlours did this kind of finish . It is looking just fantabulous !! Keep up the good work of sharing .

  5. bourjois is another brand i ahve jsut started trying. and i am loving it too like chambor! we have similar tastes na heheheh. how much are the bourjois eyeshadows for? i hae read a lot of rave reviews of its blushes specailly lila dior (baked blushes) claiming that these r vintage product and r still exactly the same as they were in the 19th century! have u tried those?

    • We do have similar tastes :). I’m new to Bourjois too. Its after my Mum used the 3-in-1 mousse foundation that I started exploring this brand. I just have this eyeshadow and a glitter eye liner which I’ll be reviewing soon.
      No, I’ve not tried their blushes but will definitely check them out when I’m at the mall next. Thanks for the info!

      This eyeshadow is for Rs 500-525 I think. The pigmentation and texture is very good. It wasn’t working so well in the crease when I tried this look though I’ll try it once more. Maybe it was the black pencil I had smudged underneath.
