A while back we published a blog on current spring beauty trends, one of them being the return of 70’s inspired blue eye makeup. We decided to have some fun and try out our own rendition of the look as well as review the popular liquid liner formula from Lime Crime Cosmetics. Here’s how it went!
Mika had previously purchased Lime Crime Liquid Liner in “Blue Milk” and hadn’t tried it yet, so instead of using the Nars product mentioned in our spring beauty trend blog we went with something new. I had been eager to try out this look for a while, and the added bonus of using Lime Crime for the first time made this a super fun experience. That morning, I had washed my face as per my usual routine of a daily oil free exfoliant and Eminences Clear Skin Moisturizer (available at Prép).
For my face, we wanted to keep it pretty simple as the focus was the eyes. I am pretty fair so we had to fake a bit of a tan to draw out the depth of the blue. Mika corrected my skin tone with the Stila Color Correcting Palette using a damp Beauty Blender. I love how easy correcting with cream pigment is with the Beauty Blender! She patted in some Youngblood tinted moisturizer as well as added a couple swipes of Becca Cosmetics Champagne Pop Highlighter. My brows were tamed with a few expert strokes of Benefits Gimme Brow. A light dusting of Laura Mercier setting powder finished my face.
Once I was bronzed to perfection, Mika used some nice brown Burberry shades for my eyelids before she applied the liner. The brush we found to be not the best quality for application, so Mika ended up using a normal angle brush. The liner went on a little thin but dried pretty fast so we were able to build it up to a perfect intensity and the matte finish popped drastically against the browns. I ended up wearing the liner for the duration of the day and was pleasantly surprised that by 10pm the liner was still just as intense and precise as it was when it was just done. I really enjoyed using Blue Milk and it is a colour I will definitely invest in for myself. I am also curious about trying more of the Lime Crime products!
