Spring Tutorial: Blueberries & Plums

I never thought that blue and plum would go so well together until I saw this (Jacqueline's makeup looks are inspirational). I love the color combination and have been itching to try it out. Once again, this is not a copy of the original but an inspired one since I wanted something softer that's spring appropriate.

Hope you like it and I really need to show you that Daiso palette, don't I? This blue is AWESOME! *tempts*

Read on for the tutorial.

Items Used

Garnier UV Protect in Purple
e.l.f. Tone Correcting Concealer
Everyday Minerals Original Glo Foundation in Buttered Tan
Coastalscents Silica Powder
e.l.f. Healthy Glow Powder in Luminance
Everyday Minerals Blush in Snuggle

Urban Decay Primer Potion
MAC Paint Pot in Rollickin
Daiso Jewel Eyecolor (Blue)
MAC Eyeshadow in Prize Bloom (Light Plum)
Smashbox Eyeshadow in Taupe Two (Dark Plum)
NYX Eyeshadow Trio in Lake Moss (Black Plum - MAC Beauty Marked dupe)
MAC Eyeshadow in Ricepaper (Highlight)
MAC Creme Liner in Black
High Curling Mascara from Daiso
Anastasia Brow Powder in Ash Blonde

MAC Tendertone Lip Balm in Sweet & Nice

Start off with lid prepped with an eyeshadow primer. Using a synthetic shadow brush, apply Rollickin right below the crease. Then, take a fluffy shadow brush and apply blue eyeshadow over the blue base. Next, take an angled brush to place Prize Bloom on top of the crease. Bring the shadow down to the outer corner of the eye to join with the blue.

Clean off the excess on the brush and blend the edges of Prize Bloom. Blend the separation line between the plum and the blue so that the color combines well. Take a round crease brush and apply Taupe Two into half of the crease bringing down the color to the outer corner of the eye as well. Using a smaller brush, apply Taupe Two on the lower lash line, extending from the upper outer corner.

Get some black plum on the small brush and add depth by blending the shadow on the outer V of the lid. Apply highlight under the brow. Finish off with eyeliner and mascara.
