Get Jay's Look: Azure + Extra

As a woman of color, wearing blue eyeshadow can be tricky. It has the potential to look a mess if not applied appropriately. For this look, I pulled some tricks in order to bring it all together. Since I love being “extra” and have big eyes, I wanted to use dramatic eyelashes to add to my “extra-ness” (I know that is not a word). I must admit, I was nervous at first, but in the end, it turned out beautiful. Once I completed the look, I took a trip to my local mall for some shopping. The compliments I’ve received were amazing, including some from professional makeup artists. Needless to say, I nailed this look. I enjoyed wearing it, and I may opt and try it again sometime during summer.

NYX Avant Pop Palette (Orange, Beige) on the crease

Inglot Duraline
**Trick** I used Inglot Duraline to liquefy the blue eyeshadow on my lid, it created a gel and it was extremely pigmented. I also used the Duraline as an adhesive to apply the glitter. If you are not hip to Inglot Duraline, get hip NOW!!! It is an awesome mixing medium.
