cobalt smoky eye nyx make up for ever blueI’ve been wanting to do a cobalt eye, and I finally got a chance to give it a try. I’m pretty pleased with the results – I’m not sure about the highlighting color, but the cobalt/smoke was super dramatic.

  • I began by filling in the entire lid with eyeshadow base, and blending well.
  • Next, I applied the Deep Blue cream eyeshadow all over the lid.
  • Using a fluffy blending brush, I buffed in the black eyeshadow into the crease, blending really well.
  • I probably blended some more.
  • Along the brow bone I worked in white shadow with a clean brush – this is the color that I think I’m not loving. White is just too harsh with my skin tone.
  • Blended more and then went back and blended again with a clean blending brush.
  • I lined lower inner rim, along my lower lash line, and my upper lash line, trying to tightline along the way.
  • Last, but not least comes three coats of my Smoky Lash Extravagant.
