Tutorial: Deep Ocean Blue

This look reminds me of oceans, of holidays and summer. I was playing around with my Mehron pastel palette last night and was just drawn to the bright pastel blue color, and wanted to use it for a makeup look. This is what I came up with! If you don't have the Mehron palette, you can use a light blue creamy eyeliner pencil as a base, or a white base would work as well. The Mehron base just gives it that extra vibrancy. Remember, these Mehron palettes are not traditional eyeshadow bases, they are water-activated face painting products that can also be used as eyeshadow base to make the colors very vibrant and rich!




Face
Bare Escentuals mineral foundation, NYX Angel blush, NYX Mosaic blush in Highlighter Nr. 1

Eyes
ArtDeco e/s base, MAC water-based Mixing Medium, Mehron Paradise Aquacolor palette in Pastel (I used the light blue shade), 88 matte and satin palette from eBay, Maybelline white eye kohl on waterline, generic false eyelashes from eBay, MAC Vellum e/s, Maybelline The Colossal mascara

Lips
MAC Angel lipstick, NYX Lipgloss in Smokey Look
