Askmewhats Version: "April Fool's Day" Blues

Happy April Fools Day Everyone!

There isn't anything exciting about people fooling each other. So I won't do any of those! hahaha I have made a look though, it's April Fool's Day Blues.

I revisited my Laura Mercier quad and I can't believe I didn't touch it for awhile.

How did I achieve this look?

Step 1:

Before anything else, I applied CS Silk White Gel Liner on lid as base. Pat using my fingers.

Using a fluffy blending brush, apply Laura Mercier light blue color all over lid

Step 2:

With a flat shader brush, apply the darkest color from the LM Blue Sky Quad on the lid area, slowly blending outward.

Step 3:

Highlight the browbone and inner corner with any soft brush using my favorite Bourjois Beige Rose.

Step 4:

Line my eyes with CS True Black, wing it a bit, apply the lower lashline too

Curled my lashes and applied mascara

Here's the Look

April Fool's Blues! :)

And what's on the rest of my face?

For the face

MAC SF liquid NC30
mixed with CG TruBlend no.1

For the Cheeks

MAC Grand Duo Blush
in Light over Dark

Top a bit with P&J Face Color 08

For the Lips

Conceal the color of my lips
with ELF Tone Correcting concealer Light
Use In2It lipstick in Fresco

Enjoying the summer?

Happy April Fool's Day!
Don't let people fool you today! :)
Stay Happy!
