Time to add a splash of colour with this birthday makeup look. A swipe of blue, paired with heavy kajal rimmed eyes and a little bit of mascara, and you’re ready to paint the town…blue! 


How To Create The Look


Step 1 - Apply Eyeshadow 


Dab a metallic blue eyeshadow on your eyelids and smoke it out to the inner and outer corners of your eyes. If you want you can add a hit of a deeper blue on the outer corners to create that pretty gradient. Blend blend blend. Apply the same hue on your bottom lash line and use a blending eyeshadow brush to soften it.
