Face Of The Day | A Pop Of Blue


b2 (2)


This is a very bright and bold look and I am excited to post this because I can’t even remember the last time I wore a bright blue color on my eyelids! It’s been a long time and I know many people are afraid of wearing really bright colors but I wanted to show my readers that it can be very easy to incorporate some bold colors without it being too dramatic or scary! Summertime is the perfect time to experiment with these types of colors!


Products Used:



The Look:

I started out with a light wash of a matte pink color all over my lid. I then used a bright matte blue eyeshadow called “Shipwreck” from the Party Girl Eye Shadow Palette by Honeybee Gardens. I used it as an eyeliner for my top lid and winged it out a bit. I also used a matte green color called “Mojito” from the same palette to line my lower lash line and also to use lightly as a blended crease color. For my lips in the first look I just used a very light pink gloss from Benecos. For the second look, to make the look even more dramatic I used a beautiful coral color from Ilia Beauty called “Karma Chameleon which I also mentioned in one of my recent wishlists! The main focus of this look are the eyes, so I didn’t want to add a colorful blush which is why I opted for a beautiful bronze color to apply to the tops of my cheek bones and down the bridge of my nose. I added two coats of mascara and left out using any black liner as I wanted my eyes to truly pop! I personally like the bright eyes and the colorful lip combination, I think the pop of blue is perfect for summer and to brighten up your entire face! I know for some the bright colors might be out of their comfort zone, but hey, makeup is all about stretching your limits and having fun!


Do you like this look? Do you prefer the colorful eyes with a light or bold lip? Would you wear such bright colors? Pretty please share your opinions in the comments!

  1. So beautiful, I love the first photos they look professional and you look gorgeous! *_* I would definitely wear this look, I don’t have any probles with wearing bold makeup also during the day πŸ™‚ I prefer the look with light pink lips.

    1. Thank you, I appreciate your feedback so much! I had a feeling most people would prefer the light lip with the bold eye colors but I personally love both. It could just be me! I also don’t have problems wearing bold colors during the day, I think it’s so much fun πŸ™‚ Thank you again for your sweet compliments and feedback! xoxo

  2. Did you use any color on the lids? I don’t see any, but I figured it could be a nude shadow. Just wondering… I usually don’t like leaving my lids naked, but that’s just me. πŸ™‚

    1. Yes! Thank you for reminding me – I forgot to add that to the description! I used a light wash of the matte pink color from the same palette. I also don’t like leaving my lids completely naked either!

  3. Hot!

  4. It looks like I am in the minority here, but I LOVE the bright lips with the bright eyes. It’s the perfect amount of color without being overly intense or in-your-face bold. I would definitely wear this look and want this palette!

  5. That’s GORGEOUS!!! It suits you on a daily basis, cause your hair and eyes are darker so it brightens them up πŸ™‚ I want that eyeshadow kit !

  6. Love this look, karma and sway are my go to products this summer, the eye palette looks so cute, huge fan of blue shadows and liner over here πŸ™‚

    1. I will be showing how I use it in an upcoming makeup look video but I would just use it lightly with your fingers on your cheek bones and down the bridge of the nose. It’s very beautiful and I am very fair but if I apply it lightly enough it looks so beautiful. I also like to apply it to my brow bones and inner corners of eyes πŸ™‚

  7. this is SO summer 2013. i love the blue-green colors with dark eyes … it’s not overwhelming, and i think you really nailed it with the pops of color. and again, your lips β€” pretty! i love this look, flower child. xoxo
