I received the concept for this metallic blue eyeliner look from a glance Kristin Stewart wore to Cannes earlier this 12 months, and I’ve been desirous to put on it ever since. Obviously, I’m no Beau Nelson (I WISH), however I attempted.
There are so many issues I really like about this make-up look, however the major issues are 1) how vibrant and metallic the liner is, and 2) how the liner morphs from vibrant metallic teal in the internal nook, to inexperienced in the center (it isn’t apparent, but it surely’s there, methinks) and a darkish blue in the nook, and that’s simply alongside the higher lash line! The decrease lash line has these small, delicate blocks of darkish blue interspersed with teal… It’s colourful however not cray-cray.
I’d completely put on this out to run errands. In reality, I did, out to get groceries, and I nearly stated “WASSSSUP” to the older girl who straight-up stared at me in the bread aisle as if I have been a customer from one other planet.
Some ideas on the key merchandise
The most complex factor on this look is the liner, however you may make it as straightforward or as sophisticated as you need. If you wish to go an easier route, you should utilize a pair of vibrant metallic blue pencils and a black liner in your water line, however I did a mixture of eyeliner, cream shadow and powder shadow… Basically, I used to be in the temper to play. 🙂
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Electric: A metallic teal with silver glitter, accessible in the everlasting line. It’s tremendous vibrant and intense, however don’t get it anyplace near your water line as a result of your eyes will tear up in the event that they’re delicate.
Chanel Stylo Ombre Et Contour in Contour Graphique ($34): I used this darkish matte navy as a base for the darker blue elements of the liner. It’s creamy, smudgy and intensely pigmented. It additionally takes about 5 minutes to completely dry down, so that you’ll have tons of time to play with it.
Chanel Splendeur et Audace Quad ($61): I layered the black and blue shades on high of the darkish matte navy liner. It’s shiny however much less intensely metallic than related shadows from Urban Decay and MAC… Eh, it’s alright.
Viseart Libertine Palette ($49): I swept the matte brown into the crease and blended the matte beige on my forehead bone and in the internal nook. The shadows have been straightforward to mix, however they’ve a really stark matte end, which, on my dry lids, provides just a few further years…
Christian Audette X Beauty Professor Lipstick in Johanna ($60): One of three lipsticks from an LE collaboration set my gal pal Rachel over at The Beauty Professor recently did with Christian Audette, an indie line from New York.
Johanna is called after her child woman, and it’s a warm-toned creamy nude matte that tastes and smells a little bit like vanilla. The tremendous clean components doesn’t catch on any lip flakes or settle into my lip traces.
In a phrase: beautiful! I topped it with a little bit Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss in 166 Physical for good measure.
My pores and skin doesn’t look anyplace close to this even-toned in actual life, by the means. I went with a fuller protection than regular as a result of Kristin’s pores and skin regarded so excellent in the photograph. I owe that magic to Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation (the original one) and Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Liquid Concealer. They did all the heavy lifting!
