Cobalt Liner and Metallic Lips
Today I'm sharing a few really simple makeup tutorials. The first three build on top of each other, going from subtle to statement. They're all a great way to incorporate a little color into your eye makeup without it looking too bold. And it just so happens that all of these looks would be perfect for the Fourth of July!
Look #1: Blue Liner
Apply foundation, concealer, a peach or coral shade of blush and any other face products you would like to use,
- Apply a light, shimmery shadow over your main lid. I used "Virgin" from the Naked Palette
- Apply a light brown shadow into the crease of your eyelid. I used "Naked" from the Naked Palette
- Apply a dark blue gel liner across your upper lash line. I used a Beaute Basics Navy Gel Eyeliner. This is another great option.
- Apply mascara
Apply a soft peach or coral toned lipstick. I used Maybelline's Pin Up Peach.
And you're done!
Look #2: Cobalt Liner
- Follow the eye steps from look #1
- Dab a bright cobalt colored shadow along the gel liner on your upper lash line. I used Chaos from the Electric Palette. Cobalt liner is really on trend right now! Another option is to use a cobalt gel liner and skip the steps from look #1.
Apply a peach or coral shade of lipstick. I used Maybelline's Pin Up Peach.
Look #3: Blue Glitter Liner
- Follow the eye steps from look #1 and look #2
- Put some eye glitter glue on your hand and sprinkle glitter on top. Mix this together and then using a small eye brush, dab along your cobalt liner. I used Sally Girl Glitter Glue and Sally Girl Glitter in Midnight Blue. I'm not sure they sell it anymore so here's another option
Once again, pair with a peach or coral toned lipstick. I used Maybelline's Pin Up Peach.
- Fill in your lips with a red lip liner
- Cover with a red lipstick. I used Maybelline's Siren in Scarlet
- Before the lipstick dries too much, use a small brush to dab a red toned metallic pigment (like this one) over your lips. You can also dab your finger in red toned metallic eye shadow and dab that on your lips.
