Tantalizing Navy

Whoever said you shouldn't wear blue above the crease because it'll look like an 80's throwback should really give a mixture of turquoise and navy blue a try.  I love this look for a night on the town or a glamorous affair.  

Brushes you'll need:

- MAC #'s 214 (short shader brush), 217 (blending brush), 242 (shader brush), 222 (tapered blending brush), Small Angle Brush (263), 252 (large shader brush), and 116 (blush brush)

Products you'll need:

- MAC Eyeshadows in Vanilla, Blanc Type, Zonc Bleu, Steamy, Surreal, Strike A Pose, Plumage, and Smut
- Nars eyeshadow base
- MAC Powder Blush in Peaches
- MAC Lipsticks in Creme d'Nude and Cherish
- MAC powerpoint eye pencil in Engraved
- MAC chromagraph cream color in Black black

Supplemental: - A brow-filling product - Mascara


[* Cover the entire lid including the brow with Nars eyeshadow base (242).
[* Apply a mixture of Vanilla and Blanc Type to the area underneath the brow bone (217).
[* Apply Zonc Bleu on the inner third of the lid extending a bit above the crease (242).
[* Follow with Strike A Pose on the middle and outer third of the lid (242).
[* Apply a mixture of Steamy and Surreal above the crease from one edge of the eye to the other horizontally blending the highlight and lid colors (242).
[* Take up small amounts of shadow at a time to build color and darken the outer V with Plumage (222).
[* Darken the outermost corner of the eye further with Smut (222).
[* Diffuse the line between the highlight colors and greens using Malt; go over the highlight color if you must (222).
