♕ Make Up Look ~ Spirit of the Ocean ♕

Hey there guppies ♥ Long time no see!
Sorry for the huge lack of new posts, I've been crazily busy with my midterm exams at the makeup school I'm attending - which now are over, but we're already planning our finals! That's insane, I know, this course it's really demanding - totally worth the effort though.
So bear with me in the next few months while I work on my final exams!

Today I'm going to show you a very simple look I totally LOVE - using some of my favourite eyeshadows by Sugarpill and some amazing blue glitters I got a while back! Not exactly an appropriate look for the current season but don't worry, I do have a couple of Christmas looks ready to post on here ;D

I had no particular inspiration for this look - except I wanted to use the Ibiza Rocks glitters by Feather and Fox (they sent me three different glitters and these are absolutely my favourite!). I decided to go for a bright blue look that could match this amazing shade of glitters, with a pop of gold on the inner corner. Although it was extremely simple - I mean, let's be real, this is not an elaborate makeup look - it totally stole my heart. 

After priming my lids I worked right away on the crease blending - like I usually do, lately; I used Velocity eyeshadow by Sugarpill, I applied it with a pencil brush on my crease, outer corner and lower lid areas and then I carefully blended it using a fluffy blending brush. On my upper lid I applied Kim Chi eyeshadow by Sugarpill - and I think I also added a tad on my lower lids too. Home Sweet Home is now my go-to transition shade when it comes to blue eyelooks, so I used it smooth the blending all around, on both upper and lower lids.
Once I was happy with all the blending - it always takes me a while to be fully satisfied - I applied a mixture of Vanitas and Byzantine eyeshadows from the Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette by NABLA Cosmetics on my inner corners. Lastly, I applied Nocturne on my lower lashline and Antique White on my brow bones. 

That's all for the eyeshadows, now let's move to the details. First of all, needless to say, eyeliner: I used the Epic Ink Liner* by NYX Professional Makeup to draw a classical winged line - quite thick on the outer corner and with a small point on the inner corner - nothing complicated at all.
Then I added the glitters: simple pattern, I applied some on the inner part of my eyes, right below my brow bone, and some below the eyeliner wing. I packed it quite a bit because I wanted an extra sparkly, extra rich result *-*
Finally, I applied a black eyepencil on my waterline, then false lashes and mascara to complete this eye look ;D
