In this LOTD, I attempted to recreate Lisa Eldridge's smokey blue eyelook tutorial featuring the Dior Bleu de Paris palette , it is a very soft smokey blue eyelook, and the impact of this look comes together after the eyes are rimmed with the black pencil liner.

I will be sharing a more wearable (natural, lighter look, if you will) LOTD with this palette soon. The palest blue somehow is calling out to me~
swatches of the shades I used in this eyelook
my step by step process
I didn't follow the exact same sequence as the tutorial but the placement of colors is the same
stuff I used
[I tried to use the same products she did]
foundation bourjois healthy mix serum foundation, collection2000 lasting perfection concealer, la mer the powder
eyes nars pro-prime eyeshadow primer, nars larger than life black pencil, dior bleu de paris palette
cheeks guerlain bronzer, guerlaine blush G (the paler coral shades)
lips clarins gloss prodige 08 papaya
do note that I took this set of pictures about 4 hours after makeup is applied (when I got home after a humid afternoon out) because I didn't like how the first set of pictures (taken before I left the house) turned out, I just reapplied the gloss, and blotted my T-zone to take the pictures
this is one of the first set of not nice pictures... my hair was looking fried after I colored, washed and blow dried it - my hair will usually soothes itself out after a couple of hours... I am also not used to my grey lenses after months of the dark brown ones. I think I look WEIRD.
Anyway, hope this is helpful, and happy CNY everyone. :)
Thanks for looking!
ps featured Dior palette was given to me for consideration.
