Dare to Wear Blue with Revlon PhotoReady | Beauty Looks

October 21, 2013

Do you dare to wear blue?  I do.  In fact one of my favourite ways to wear blue eyeshadow is a blue smoky eyes.  So when Revlon asked if I would like to take on their "Dare to Wear Blue" challenge, I immediately know I want to get some inspiration from my go-to blue eyeshadow look!
For this look, I used the following products:
Revlon PhotoReady Primer + Shadow in 525 Avant Garde
Revlon PhotoReady Kajal Intense Eyeliner; T to B: 001 Black & 002 Blue
Revlon PhotoReady Kajal Intense Eyeliner; T to B: 001 Black & 002 Blue
Revlon Lash Potion Volume + Length Mascara by Grow Luscious

Eyes:
  • NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
  • Revlon PhotoReady Primer + Shadow in 525 Avant Garde*
  • Revlon PhotoReady Kajal Intense Eyeliner in 001 Black*
  • Revlon PhotoReady Kajal Intense Eyeliner in 002 Blue*
  • Revlon Lash Potion Volume + Length Mascara by Grow Luscious*
Lips:
  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Snow Pink*
Face:
  • Dior Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation in 201 Linen
  • NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Honey
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed
  • Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
  • Brows: Benefit Gimme Brow* & MAC Copperplate

Part 1:


  1. Using a stiff detail brush to apply the blue end Revlon PhotoReady Kajal Intense Eyeliner in 002 Blue along the upper lash line.
  2. Using the other end of the same liner and apply it in the inner corner and blend it out with finger.
  3. Pick up the second colour in Revlon PhotoReady Primer + Shadow in 525 Avant Garde with a pencil brush
  4. Apply that colour in #3 and blend it along the lash line where we applied the blue liner
  5. Use a flat shader brush, take the third colour in the Avant Garde palette
  6. Apply the colour in #5 all over the lid
  7. Take the first colour in the Avant Garde palette and place it in the inner corner on top of the lilac liner to brighten up the eyes.
  8. Take an eyeshadow that's close to the shade of bronzer
  9. Sweep that on the crease using a fluffy blending brush as a transition colour.  This will warm up the overall cool tone look.

Part 2:


  1. Using a stiff dome blending brush, pick up the bottom left colour in the Avant Garde palette.
  2. Place the colour in #1 on the brow bone.
  3. Tight line with the Revlon PhotoReady Kajal Intense Eyeliner in 001 Black.
  4. Apply the Revlon Lash Potion Mascara
  5. Use the blue liner in part 1 and line the lower lash line from outer corner till half way
  6. For lips, I used Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Snow Pink.
  7. ~ 9. Check your eye makeup to see if you like it ;)
And here's the finished look:

For me, to wear blue eyeshadow, I like to balance it out with a brown colour so it doesn't look too awkward on my warm undertone.  With a slightly dramatic look, I also prefer a neutral lips, these Revlon Super Lustrous Lipglosses are very smooth and non sticky.  I really like this Snow Pink one in particular.
How would you wear a blue eye look?  Let me know your tips & tricks!

Until next time,

  1. This is lovely on you! I would love to be so brave. I wear taupe. But with this post, you have inspired me to try something new - perhaps green. Your technique is excellent.

  4. Thanks Naghmeh. It has to do with undertone and eye colour too. But the "warming up technique" is transferable. Definitely will work with another colour!

  5. Thanks! I think it will work with green eyeshadow too. I usually go for neutrals too. hehe
