"Midnight Rush" Blue Smokey + Nude Lips

Bonjour mes belles! One of my favorite makeup combos to wear for a night out is a classic smokey eye in a vibrant shade paired with the palest of nude lips. For today's edition of Wearable Wednesday I have prepared precisely this -- a Midnight Blue Smokey Eye and pale, barely pink, nude lips. For this look, I'm using some of my favorite products from Lancome and Lime Crime, a palette and a lipstick, respectively and balancing it out with clean skin, full brows, and rosy cheeks.

 "Midnight Rush" Vibrant Blue Smokey Eye Pictorial-Tutorial
  1. Apply the lightest shade to your brow bone using the #13 brush, then highlight the inner corner.
  2. With the #17 blending brush, apply the matte gray shade to your crease. Use windshield wiper motions to layer the color and circular motions to blend out any harsh edges.
  3. Pat on the vibrant blue shade all over the lid using the #11 brush. 
    • TIP: For deeper-set eyes, concentrate the color on the center of the lid and feather it into the crease shade.
  4. Using the liner side of the dual-end #24 brush, line the entire lash line and waterline with black gel liner. Extend the outer wing and thicken the outer portion.
  5. Using the smudger side of the dual-end #24 brush and the darkest shade in the palette, smudge out the liner and darken the outer corner of the lid. Highlight the center of the lid with the sparkly highlighter shade.
    • TIP: Shade the outer "V" of the eye for more definition and dimension. This is a great trick for hooded eyes and Asian eyes.
  6. Apply your mascara and falsies.
Products Used (FACE):
  • Missha M Perfect BB Cream in #27 (Honey Beige) and #31 (Golden Beige) -- I got some sun over the weekend, so I'm mixing in my summer color. 
    • P. S. I applied my BB cream with the Magic Touch Sponge, which uses air compression technology to help makeup apply smoothly. I don't think this sponge is out yet, but I can't wait for you all to try it -- I call this product my NASA sponge!
  • TiGi Cosmetics Glow Blush in Lovely
