I rarely attempt to wear electric colour makeup (with the exception of a fuchsia pink lip from time to time) because let’s face it electric blue, green, and purple remind me just too much of tacky 80’s music videos! During my trip out west with Shopper’s Drug Mart Beauty Boutique team earlier this month, I was encouraged to try my “beauty never”, the results were unexpected and I was extremely pleased!

Simone Otis, our talented makeup artist alongside with the Shopper’s Drug Mart Beauty Boutique team did such a fantastic job with my Beauty Never look. We decided to try an electric blue eye and an unexpected lippy on me! Urban Decay’s 34/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in CHAOS was lightly swept across my lash line and also smudged further into my lashes to create a blue feathery look. It’s subtle yet so unexpected! Bright colour eyeliners are making an appearance again and it’s such a great way to add a punch to simple outfit.
We originally had plans to pair this electric blue eyeliner with a bright pink lipstick for a super fun look, however we collectively decided that a nude lip (Bite Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb mixed with Shiseido Perfect Rouge in BE310 (discontinued)) would be a better fit with the choice of my casual, yet edgy outfit! I’ve tried to apply nude lipstick before on my own, but I’ve always had a hard time getting the nude lip colour exact due to the natural darker pigments of my lips. The darker pigments tend to peek through, and it never looks quite right. Simone taught me a great trick – to apply a layer of foundation or concealer over my lips to neutralize the colour before applying the lip colour. And it totally work!
My face was finished off with a light layer of Pur Mineral Balancing Act Oil Control Powder (you MUST try it if you have an oily t-zone) and some light blush to soften up the bold eyeliner and cool lips!
I love this look and can’t wait to recreate it at home!
