Hi everyone. Today, I have a trendy smoky blue eyeshadow tutorial for you. This look is really beautiful, so let’s get started!

Tools and materials:

  • Eyeshadow primer
  • Dark blue eyeshadows
  • Eyeshadow brushes
  • Tissue (optional)
  • Black eye pencil
  • Highlighter
  • Eyelash curler
  • Mascara
  • False eyelashes (optional) 
Applying an eyeshadow primer

1. Apply an eyeshadow primer

Start off this look by going in with an eyeshadow primer.

This will help to bring out the colors of the eyeshadow, making them nice and vibrant. The primer also helps the eyeshadow look last longer.

Next, I’m taking a black eyeliner and applying that all over the lids to create a black base for the eyeshadow to sit on. I’m using my finger to blend it out.

3. Apply blue eyeshadow

Now it’s time to go in with the blue eyeshadow. I like to place a tissue below my eye to help avoid fallout, then I’m going in with a dark blue color and sweeping that over the black base.

Then, I'll go in with a slightly lighter blue and apply that over the top. 


4. Blend

With a clean and fluffy blending brush, I’m just going to blend out the edges. 


Then, to help blend the eyeshadow more, I'll go in with some compact powder and sweep it along my brow bone.

Make sure to connect it to your upper lash line, then blend it out and go in with the darker blue eyeshadow, directly beneath your lower eyelashes.
