'Touch of Electric Blue' Look

'Touch of Electric Blue' Look

I did this quick look for my family dinner to celebrate my birthday. I'm really loving the Super Liners from Pure Luxe for a really bright pop of color. This kind of look is perfect for those who want to try color but may be afraid of full on brights.


I started off with Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eyeshadow Primer all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Soft Ochre Paintpot (matte yellow beige) all over my lid and on my brow bone as my primary base. Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush

On the lid and tearduct area I applied MAC Blanc Type Eyeshadow (matte ivory). MAC 242 Shader Brush 
On the outer lid and crease I applied Urban Decay Black Dog Eyeshadow (matte black). Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush
For the inner crease I applied MAC Notoriety Eyeshadow (velvet brown w/ golden sparkles). Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush
On the browbone area and for blending I used MAC Wild By Nature Eyeshadow (matte camel). MAC Large 252 Shader Brush
For my lower lashline I used Pure Luxe Glory Pigment (matte intense navy). Stila #28 Smudge Pot Brush

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown). Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush

I lined my upper lashline with Pure Luxe Twisted Super Liner (matte bright blue). MAC 210 Precise Eye Liner Brush
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. Stila #28 Smudge Pot Brush
I used Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Senses Smashing False Eyelashes for effect.


For my lips I used MAC Blooming Lovely Lipstick (creamy light pink) topped with MAC English Accents Lipglass (creamy light pink).


I primed my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion and Tarte ReCreate™ Silicone-Free Primer. I used MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC45 - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Blot Powder in Dark. I used MUFE #14 Full Cover Concealer - Fingers : ) under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage - Beauty Blender Sponge.

I used MAC Instant Chic Blush (matte light coral) for my cheeks - MAC 129 Powder/Blush Brush and MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour and MAC Petticoat Mineralize Skinfinish for highlight - Professionnel Platinum Blush Brush #49.

  10. Hi, Tina. Since the day I read your comments about L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner I'm really eager to try it (though we don't have it here in Spain), but before I ask someone to buy it for me abroad (I mean, I'll have to buy it before seeing it or trying it by myself), can you tell me how many hours does it stay on your waterline? So far I haven't found anything that works on mine.

  11. I hope you had a wonderful birthday!

  12. You look absolutely amazing!!!! Happy happy birthday.. Wishing u many more birthdays to come! Hope u had a gr8/safe one :)

    P.S. What kind of liquid did u use to apply the "liner"? .. I think this should be a video

  13. Gorgeous as always! I love this look on you. I think that pop of color you used really made the look. :)


  14. I hope you had a wonderful birthday, you look amazing, just beautiful and that damn blue liner is to die for I love it.....

    Thanks .. I think that's y I love mattes so much. They can give an airbrushed look.

    Thanks Candy doll. It will be 2 years in March since I had that short bob. There have been a couple of trims but no major cut since then.

  18. Hi Mari. The Loreal HIP liner lasts at least 6-8 hours on my waterline. It is the only one that works for me.

    Thanks so much Anonymous. I just used water for the liner. I will do a tut for a similar look soon.

    Thanks so much Gail!
