Frosty blue & silver eyeshadow look using the Morphe Brushes 35K - 35 Color Koffee eyeshadow palette + Dose of Colors Stone!


Hi guys, I mentioned in my post about the Morphe 35K Palette that I really wanted to create a cool-toned look using the blues and silvers in this palette since I find that everyone does browny warm-toned looks, but I don't see a lot of cool-toned looks. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE browns and wear them all the time, but I think it's nice to try something different and step out of your comfort zone once in a while. Plus I wanted to show how versatile this palette is - you probably wouldn't think of this palette when seeing this eye look, but there is so much more to this palette than warm browns. 




So I created this frosty blue and silver eyeshadow look that has a very wintery vibe to it (to me anyways). And as you can tell, these Morphe eyeshadows are insanely pigmented and buttery. This palette is currently out of stock but it is permanent so it's coming back soon. I cannot say enough good things about it - go check out my post about it here to see all shades swatched.




Here you can see which shades I used (since they don't have names): I basically used the 4 shadows indicated below to create this look




I applied the first shade from the fourth row on the mobile lid, put some of the shade next to it towards the center of the lid and the inner corner. Then I used the matte blue shade from the bottom row in the crease and blended over everything with the shimmery blue color next to it.

On the lower lashline, I put the matte blue all over and added the shimmery light blue on top. I also used Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma eyeshadow as my inner corner, browbone and cheekbone highlight since most of my highlighters are more golden and I wanted something more cool to neutral for this look to go nicely with the eyes.

I lined my inner rim with a black khol pencil and added lots of mascara and some corner lashes. The ones I used actually used to be regular strip lashes - the House of Lashes Noir Fairy ones - but they fell apart after only like 3 uses which totally upsets me but then I decided to use just the ends of them as corner lashes. I have never worn half lashes or individuals before but I must say I really like how it came out! Plus one has to make a virtue out of necessity, right?

Also, on my lips I am wearing Dose of Colors liquid lipstick in Stone which I finally got my hands on!!! It used to be limited edition and now they brought it back. I am not sure if it's permanent but I have it now and I am so happy! As you can see, it's a greyish nude pink color that I felt was a good choice for this look.
