Making it Wearable - Electric Blue Eyeliner

I have always loved to make loud statement making trends wearable for everyday be it, bright colors, crazy eyeliner shades and unusual color combinations.

Along the way there could be blunders but we all learn best through experience. So join me as I take you through a new series of Making It Wearable...

Featuring an Electric Blue Eyeliner by Rimmel
Basically what I did was to use neutral shades black, brown, greys to tone down the bright blue shade. The rest of my face make up was kept muted with skin toned blusher and subtle contouring.

I like that the blue still stands out but it is still suited for the streets and will not make you like look like a street performer.

If you want more dramatic look you can pile on glitter, false lashes and even put in more color in the lips and cheeks. It is completely up to you. As I still wanted to go out and pick up some stuff from the shopping centre near my house I did not want so dramatic a look.

You can get some ideas from my video tutorial and build upon it :)
