Try a Trend...Feeling Blue

Blue eyshadow has had a bad rap for a long time now, evoking images of lame-o 80s popstars. But blue is back with a cool new feisty look.  As Artistic Director of myface cosmetics, Kabuki, says, 'Classic beauty with a metallic glow is set to be a major trend in 2011.' From pastel to azure, from Nicki Minaj to Katy Perry, the winter blues have never looked so hot. 

Step 1. When applying foundation, sweep over the eye to create a base for your shadow.

Step 2. Apply myface blingtone in bellbottom blues, £9.99 (Boots) across the lid. Press colour into the inner corner of the eye with your middle finger, then using a medium-sized shadow brush take the colour slightly above the crease and wing out towards the hairline.
Step 3. Next line the lower lashes with myface high def eye pencil in electric blue, £6.99 (Boots). I took the pencil out towards the hairline, almost underlining the eyeshadow, to give a graphic effect.

Step 4. Finish the look with lashings of black mascara.  


If you buy any blingtone eyeshadow or mascara at Boots, you will get an eye pencil, worth £6.99, absolutely free! The offer runs until 23rd February so hurry, hurry! Sx
