I’m so happy to have Julie from Swatch and Review guest posting today! She can sure rock a blue lipstick!

Blue and Silver makeup


Hi all! I’m Julie from Swatch and Review! When “Blue and Silver” won for the Canadian Beauty Bloggers‘ theme of the month, my first thought was to do a quick and easy manicure and be done with it. But… I was up to the challenge of incorporating both blue and silver into my makeup. And since I am working on this post during my time in Australia at PAX (a video game/comic book/nerd conference), I figured this was the perfect time and place for a crazy cool makeup look.

Wet n Wild High Wasted Jeans eyeshadow

The look all started with Wet n Wild’s limited edition eyeshadow palette, High Wasted Jeans. (no that’s not a typo). It had a nice mix of blue and silver shimmers that would be perfect for an icy eye look.

I used pretty much all the shadows in the palette, starting with the darkest on the lid and blending my way out with lighter colours.

I used the silver shade in the inner corner and a bit on the centre of the lid just for some dimension.


Wet n Wild Techno eye pencil


I also added the Wet n Wild Idol Eyes Creme Shadow Pencil in Techno on the lower lashline just for fun. I did try this as a shadow base at first but it was a bit too greasy to stay put.

NYX Macaron Blue Velvet lipstick

Next up, blue lips. I started with a light base just around the outer lipline with Kat Von D’s Poe (not shown here, it’s a dark navy blue with glitter) and then filled in with NYX Macaron Blue Velvet (above).

And here’s the final look! Not something I’d wear everyday, but still pretty wearable. I didn’t get too many odd looks at the PAX convention either.

I think that, minus the blue lips, the eyeshadow look is way more smoky and less “80s blue”. For a palette I didn’t think I would use much, I am reach for High Wasted Jeans a lot more now after creating this look!
