As soon as I got the Bare Minerals The Cocktail Hour palette the shade Shaken Not Stirred has been calling out to me. As promised, I did a look using it to show you all. I am very please with the way my first go with the beautiful navy shade turned out.
Please don't make fun of my hair in the first few shots. I was about to film a review/tutorial on a hair tool so I did my makeup first and had my hair all pinned up. I was so excited with how the look turned out I was quick to snap pics and didn't realize my hair wasn't done. :)
Everything I used on my eyes today was brand new to me. I used a new mascara, eyeliner, and brow pencil. The eyeshadow itself was one I have never used as well. Fun times...
Finally I decided to do my hair so this is a shot with my hair done. It sort of looks black/charcoal grey instead of a deep navy blue in this shot.
Either way, I love this eyeshadow. It is gorgeous and not at all hard to work with.
Here is a closeup of the eye makeup. I used Shaken Not Stirred all over the lid and into the crease. I blended my crease with a light matte brown and highlighted my brow with a matte white. I highlighted the inner corner with a shimmery champagne color.
My lip choice was a Laura Geller gloss called Skinny Dip. It is a beautiful color to apply when you go for dramatic eyes. Just a touch of honey/amber on the lips and slight shimmer.
Hope you liked the look I created. I don't typically go bold but decided it was something fun. I loooooooove Bare Minerals Shaken Not Stirred. First blue I have ever fallen completely head over heels in love with. I love blue eyeshadow on others, I just always think it looks sort of crazy on me. And dark navy shades are especially hard to work with because so many don't blend very well. This one is a dream!
What have you done lately that is out of the norm? Navy blue eyeshadow is definitely mine. Let me know in the comments below!!!
