Shades of Blue by KatieAlves Shades of Blue by KatieAlves
Playing with my new Sugarpill eyeshadow and mixing it with my BH Cosmetics shimmers!

Speaking of BH Cosmetics (bad change of topic) Go check out BH Cosmetics contest! I'm in it and thanks to a lot of you, currently in 1st! [link] It may only be a .4 lead, but seriously, I love you guys! haha! So go check it out and pick your favourite!

Amazing color and blending. Great color choices! Very expertly done. This would be something great for a winter based costume or even a common elf or high elf costume. I think it really is a great choice for the eye color because it sets it apart. The upward sweep of the blue dots on the side of the eye help to finish the framing of the eye. Also, the dark blue right under the eye crease shading draws your eyes right to the middle of the make-up allowing you to take in everything at once. I normally do the sides of my eyes with the white or lighter color because I feel it gives a younger look but is also very expressive just as this is.
What do you think?

I have featured this wonderful work in my newest BLUE-collection![link]

I hope you will agree and enjoy!:iconbouncykingplz:
Lol I want to try this on my own eyes, I doubt it will even remotely close! I'm so bad with makeup, I can only do two colors and that's it. I'm even hopeless with a simple smokey eye. Lol send me a video or a step by step? xD
KatieAlves Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Haha! I don't have a video tutorial, but it's similar to this tutorial: [link] It might help you!

How do you get such gorgeous eye brows?

I really love this look. Sadly, I don't have the skill to do makeup like this (...yet). But I just love the way the blue of the eyeshadow and the brown of your eye contrast. It's very nice :meow:

OMGEE You should be a make-up artist for celebrities. I'd definitely pay you to do my make-up XD!

You are truely a talented makeup artist. You should go to a makeup competition or audition where you can get a job. You could become very famous. You are really really creative and talented. You could have people pay you to do their makeup for prom or something.

I cant tell, are those fake eyelashes on half of your lower lid? Or are they real? Either you did a beautiful application job, or your eyelashes are just spectacular! :)
KatieAlves Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Nope! Those are my real lower lashes! I just added mascara to them to help them stand out a bit! :)

im trying to play around with gold eyeliner do you have any suggestions and i really like that blue eyeliner you used for the dots what is it
KatieAlves Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
The blue dots are Gosh's liquid eyeliner.
For gold, try doing something like fire! That could be fun! :D
beastsgirl Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
lately I've been playing around with colors and playful ways to do my makeup and i've been looking for a really pretty blue eyeliner to do a cateye with... Im not really good with make up I'm kind of just experimenting with it are there any tips you can give me
KatieAlves Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Always have a Q-tip around! Even if your makeup is messy, you can clean everything up with a Q-tip. It's hard to make makeup look smooth when the edges are rough, but if you use a Q-tip, you can get rid of all the smudges and rough edges with it!

oooo <3 this! Must get the BH Shimmers palette... Was it ...4rth generation? Can't remember! Need to get Sugarpill too as everyone on MakeupBee uses it but I don't think it's easily available to UK!
KatieAlves Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Yup! It's the 4th Gen!
Sugarpill is all online and I believe that they have a "Buy $75 worth and get free shipping" sort of thing!
Vondie Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That's like 50 where I live and that's a lot of money that I do not have!
EarthAngel4545 Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2012
Is the light blue a separate color, or did you blend the white with the dark blue to make it that color? I figured it was a separate color, but I've been wrong before! =o)
KatieAlves Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
It's a separate colour! The blue on the lid is Sugarpill (somewhat matte colour) and the rest is BH Cosmetics (all shimmers). :)
EarthAngel4545 Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012
I do like my shimmers. I might have to invest in some of that. (I need more makeup like a hole in the head! Amazing how that never stops me from buying more though. lol!)
Vladimir-Valentine Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Very pretty, blue is a great color due to it's various it

OMG. This is gorgeous. The blue really contrasts with the brown of the eye. And I like the white on the inner corners :)
