How to: clean make up with a hint of blue eye shadow


The first thing you need to do is to prime or prep your skin. It is important to have well hydrated skin to get this look and you can get that by simply moisturizing your face. You can also use an all in one face primer. For this look, Bobbi Brown’s Hydrating Face Cream was used.


Next, you will need to create flawless matte skin. All you have to do is to apply matte foundation evenly on your face. You can use a brush or your fingers for this. If you have blemished or other areas that need extra coverage, you can use a concealer that’s in a natural shade.

Set your foundation with powder for an extra matte finish.


Create natural looking flushed cheeks by using a blush in a natural shade. Sweep it on the apples of your cheeks and above you cheek bones.


This looks features lips that are in a matte neutral shade like Bobbi Brown’s True Beige Creamy Matte Lip Color. Just apply it all over your lips.


Well groomed brows go a long way. Take the time to fix your brows and then create definition with an eyebrow pencil or eye shadow. Use light upward strokes in filling in your brows for a more natural look.


The eyes for this look is very easy to do. You will need two shades of eye shadows: one in white and the other in a light and bright dusty blue. Start by taking the white shadow and apply it all over your lid.

Next, take the blue eye shadow and apply it on the lower part of your eyelids with a blending brush. Make sure you blend the two colors nicely.

A hint of color, in this case blue, is enough to add some spark in any simple look. This beauty look is great day or night and you can be assured that you’ll look great without looking over the top.
