Night Time Blues

Hi guys,

When it comes to creating a night look, my go-to color is midnight blue and I particularly love 17 Wild Midnight Blue cream shimmer eye shadow. So when a social event came up over the weekend, I naturally reached out for this product. I had two different events, to which I managed to create two different but similar look with the same product.

For either makeup, I used:
No. 7 Shine Free primer
Bronze Goddess moisturizer
Black Opal flawless perfecting concealer
Maybelline dream matte mousse ‘Cocoa’
Fair & White Pressed powder
Flori Roberts bronzer
Zaron blush
17 Va va voom mascara
Ben Nye finishing spray

First look:

I wanted a misty look for a late night out so for this look, I didn’t use any powder.

After cleansing & moisturizing, I used No. 7 Shine free primer after which I used Black Opal flawless perfecting concealer under my eyes. I used my finger to blend and followed with Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation which I applied all over my face with foundation wedge. Once done, I lightly dusted Flori Roberts Bronzing Powder for a sheer, glowing finish.

For the eyes, 17 Wild Midnight Blue shimmer cream eye shadow came handy


This look is super easy to create. I applied the shimmer cream eyeshadow all over my eye lids with my finger tips. And then I dabbed my contour brush in similar midnight blue matte powder eyeshadow which I used for contouring. I finished off with silver shimmer eyeshadow for highlighting the brow bone


I followed this by applying liquid eye liner and 17 Va va voom mascara followed by blush and Mary Kay Cream & Sugar lip gloss for a natural sheer and softer finish. I finished this look with Ben Nye finishing spray for an all night long stay.

Second look:


For this look, I played with different shades of blue. I started off with silver blue shimmer eyeshadow on the inner corner of the eye and used 17 Wild Midnight Blue shimmer cream eyeshadow to cover the rest of the eye lid. For contouring, I used black matte eyeshadow this time around and used shimmer sky blue eyeshadow to highlight the brow bone. To line the eyes, I used Fair & White black eye pencil which is soft but not too creamy or smudgy. 17 Va va voom mascara created the needed volume.
On the lips, I used Flori Roberts Jazz Orange lip stick.


Blues are great for night time when you don’t want to use black eyeshadow and makes a great alternative.
