Eyes of the Day - Smoky Blue

So it's late at night and I'm about to change my bedsheets. Naturally this seems like a good time to start playing with makeup. I thought I would try something which I normally shy away from, namely navy blue and blackened colours. I don't think they flatter me at all but I thought I would give it a go. Also this is the first time I've tried doing macro shots with a flash. I'm semi-happy with it but obviously the pictures aren't perfect!

I started with Urban Decay's 24/7 Liner in Binge, which is a navy blue. Over that I applied Barry M's Dazzle Dust in 98 which I believe is Petrol Black. Very pretty shadow. Then I dabbed a tiny bit of Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy and patted Fyrinnae Biker Chic over the top. I added a bit of silver and blue from the Sleek Acid Palette and a matte skin colour to highlight.

Products used:

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Binge - all over lid & lower lashline.
Barry M Dazzle Dust 98 Petrol Black
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Fyrinnae Biker Chic
Sleek Acid Palette (silver and lightest blue colours)
Asda George 4 Colour Eye Palette in 01 Chestnut (matte cream) - highlight

I do like this look, I love the sparkles and the contrast between the almost greasy lid and the matte highlight. However I'm still not sure it's for me. I think it would look beautiful on brown eyes though!

Hope you like it.


  1. That color is absolutely lovely on you! It's most def for you. Love the sheen to the colors too, totally fab.

  2. Bleurgh I don't know if my comment went through, Blogger spazzed out. Anyway, I think this look is absolutely beautiful and I totally want to steal it!

  3. I love the 'greasy' smokey eye thing. Lovely! I start playing with makeup at the most random times as well!

  4. I play with makeup whenever I feel like it. xD Even odd hours of the night! xD

  5. Lol, I do the opposite, I wake up at like 8am and start doing makeup. I guess people would probably find that just as strange. I commend your adventures into dark and smokey territory, it's not the easiest look to make look nice but you managed to pull it off.

  6. Oooh I don't give my barry m or fyrinnae loose shadows enough love recently... clearly I should as great things can happen! This is very pretty xx

  7. I love these colours, looks great on you xxx

  8. I love this look! I'm a huge fan of dark colours!

  9. I like this look and I think I need some more Barry M. Dazzle Dusts. The Petrol Black looks great!
