POP! ELECTRIC BLUE SMOKEY EYE MAKEUP + VIDEO

Blue makeup, Urban Decay Electric,

Todays post features and electric blue smokey eye courtesy of Urban Decay and Sugarpill Cosmetics. Maybe Modern 80s Makeup? I just love how my highlight came out.

Again I'm still navigating my way through this makeup video tutorial world but I think  this look came out a little better than my previous. You also get a glimpse of how I do my base makeup as I get a lot of questions on it.

After I looked at the video and pictures I saw there really wasn't a contrast between my eyeshadows on camera so I added a darker blue (seen in above picture) and I think that looks way better. I've already thought of ten ways I could improve this look which is always the case. I've done this look before...it was horrid on camera haha which is why I never posted it and this has come out way better. I enjoy doing the same looks over because when you put them side by side you can see your skill evolve and improve and your style change. I already have an old look in mind I want to recreate again I'm not sure I will at the moment because the look isn't really "in season."

Enough rambles, I hope you guys enjoy this look if you have tips on how I can improve my video quality feel free to comment below and if you have any request you can leave them below as well or tweet me @amseleigh.

Todays makeup look was inspired by an old makeup tutorial made by profession makeup artist to the stars Charlotte Tilbury. She did a very intense electric blue smokey eye makeup tutorial using Maybelline color tattoo in Tenacious Teal. (X)
