'Cosmic Blue' Look

'Cosmic Blue' Look

Ahhhh! Finally a new look! LOL! This one makes use of my fab Grande Lumiere Palette from Ben Nye that I have been itching to get for the longest time. I finally gave in after being bored online in Germany....hahahhaaa! And I am glad I did - review coming up. How's it going my pretties (witch from Wizard of Oz voice)?

And the hair...all just clip in extensions after missing my longer hair too much.

I started off with Urban Decay Primer Potion all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (creamy beige) all over my lid and into the crease as my primary base - Sonia Kaskuk Large Crease Brush. 

On the inner lid and tearduct area I used MAC Crystal Avalanche Eyeshadow (shimmery white w/ blue reflects). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush
For the middle on the lid I applied Ben Nye Cosmic Blue Grande Lumiere Eyeshadow (frosty brilliant blue). MAC 242 Small Shader Brush
On the outer lid and crease I applied NARS Outremer Eyeshadow (matte vivid blue). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush
To deepen the outer V I used NARS China Blue Eyeshadow (matte deep blue). MAC 217 Blending Brush
For the browbone area and for blending I used MAC Wild By Nature Eyeshadow (matte nude). Sonia Kaskuk Large Crease Brush
For highlight I used Magnolia Makeup Buff Pigment (matte ivory). MAC 252 Large Shader Brush
On the lower lashline I applied MUFE #10 Aqua Cream (shimmery tangerine orange). Cozzette Eyebrow/Mini Shader D230 Brush

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown). Cozzette Eyebrow/Mini Shader D230 Brush/Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush

I lined my upper lashline with Wet 'n' Wild Crème Eyeliner (matte black). MAC 263 Small Angle Brush
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. Sigma Eye Liner - E05 Brush
I used L'Oreal Carbon Black Voluminous Mascara for my lashes and added Nigel Beauty Emporium #43 Eyelashes for effect.

For my lips I used MAC Yash Lipstick (matte nude) topped with MAC Frankly Fresh Lipglass (creamy pinky nude).

I primed my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion all over my face and Phillips Milk of Magnesia in my t-zone area. I used MAC Matchmaster Foundation in 7.0 - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder in Dark - face puff.

I used MUFE #12 Full Cover Concealer - Cozzette P350 Cylinder Concealer Brush - under my eyes set with MAC Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder in Medium Deep - face puff

I used Tarte Exposed 12-Hour Amazonian Clay Blush (honey beige) for my cheeks - Cozzette Contour Stylist S135 Brush - and MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour - Cozzette Contour Stylist S135 Brush.
