~Blue FOTD~ Antipodean Beauties Challenge


I love blue makeup so this week’s challenge was right up my alley. I have a folder of inspiration images from the runway and I like to recreate them when I can. The images in this post are all from the Dior Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2012 show and are courtesy of the Dior Facebook page.





For my version I used a silvery green instead of the starker silver used in the original look.


Products used are (from left to right): Chanel Illusion d’Ombre in Epatant, MAC Paint Pot in Pure Creation, the dark blue shade from the Sleek Storm palette and the lightest shade in the same palette, NYX Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Blue and Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara in Electric Blue.


I mixed the Chanel and MAC cream shadows and then applied it to the eye in the shape that I wanted. I had to clean it up using a cotton bud with makeup remover on it to get the shape right. I then blended out the outer edge with the dark blue shade from the Sleek Palette and darkened it further with some black. I applied the light shadow as a highlight to the inner corner and then lined my eyes. I finished up by applying some white mascara to my lashes and then applied the blue mascara over it.





I did some light contouring using the dark brown shadow from the Sleek Storm palette. I used Guerlain Blush and Sun along the cheek bone. I also applied some blue hair chalk to my highlights (and managed to get it on my forehead…) to try and tie the look together.



The lips in the look are stunning and something that I would wear on its own.


In my attempt to recreate the look I started by lining my lips and filling them in with NYX lip liner in Hot Red. I then applied Kardashian Beauty lipstick in Retro Red all over my lips. I patted Sugarpill Buttercupcake (bright yellow) to the top part of my lip just near the bow. I then used Sugarpill Dollipop (bright pink) on the bottom lip just in the centre.
