Golden Blue

As mentioned on the previous tutorial, I wanted to do a look using gold and blue eyeshadow. I think the beautiful gold eyeshadow compliments the blue eyesadow nicely. It helps when blue and yellow are complimentary colors too 😉

This look will work well for those who don’t like to put dark shadows on the lower lid. The gold eyeshadow really opens up the eyes. The blue liner on the waterline also helps to make the white part of the eyes look whiter. This will look great on any eye colors.


1. I applied Smashbox 24k eyeshadow on the eyelid using a flat eyeshadow brush.

2. Using another flat eyeshadow brush, I applied MAC Birds and Berries on the outer half of the lid.

3. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, I applied L‘oreal Infallible eyeshadow in All Night Blue on the outer V and a tiny bit on the crease.

4. Using a clean blending brush, I blended the darkest blue towards the gold and blended the crease. Add more blue eyeshadow to make it as dark as you like.

5. I lined my waterline using MAC Technakohl liner in Auto-de-Blu and stamped L’oreal All Night Blue infallible eyeshadow on top of the liner using an angled eyeliner brush.

6. Using a clean angled eyeliner brush, I applied Smashbox 24k eyeshadow along the lower lashline.

7. Using the same angled brush, I applied Smashbox Sienna eyeshadow on the outer half of the lower lashline.

8. I created a winged liner along the upper lashline using Clinique Gel Liner in black and a small angled eyeliner brush.

9. I filled in my brows using Anastasia Brow Powder in Brunette.

10. I curled my lashes and applied Maybelline Volum Express Turbo mascara on both top and bottom lashes.

11. For the face, I applied Giorgio Armani Silk foundation using MAC Stippling Brush. Stippled it on my face for an airbrush finish.

12. For the cheeks, I applied MAC Cubic blush along my cheekbones.

13. For the lips, I applied L’occitane clear lipgloss since my lips are uber chapped. Blot the excess so it’s not sticky and gooey.
