Sinful Sapphire

I don't know about you, but I'm not much of a diamond gal. Sure, they're gorgeous, but they're just so...plain. I would much rather have a jewelry box full of colorful semi-precious gemstones.

Besides my birthstone Amethyst, Sapphire is my second favorite gemstone (I also LOVE Opal). The deep, blue color is so intense and mystifying and full of depth. Many people don't know this, but sapphires come in many different colors, including purple, pink and even red. So I decided to create a look inspired by this lovely stone!


FACE:
  • Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Buff and Sand Beige
  • Make Up For Ever Duo Mat Powder Foundation in # 200 - Opalescent Beige

EYES:
  • BFTE Eye and Lip Primer
  • NYX Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean as a base all over lids
  • Sigma Eyeshadow in Seine all over top lid and on outer/lower lids
  • Sigma Eyeshadow in Eiffel to deepen Seine
  • Sigma Eyeshadow in Elysees to blend out Seine, also applied on lower lids
  • Sigmas Eyeshadow in Notre Dame
  • Sigma Eyeshadow in Versailles on brow-bone and tear-duct
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Chopper to blend out Elysees
  • Wet N Wild Liquid Eyeliner in Black
  • Maybelline Eyeliner Pencil in Navy Blue with Seine patted on top

CHEEKS:
  • NYX Bronzer in Sunny
  • Sigma Blush in Peche
  • Sigma Highlighter in Lumiere

LIPS:
  • Lime Crime Lipstick in Coquette
  • Manic Panic Lipgloss in Naked
LASHES:
MINI REVIEW: These long and intense lashes are not only gorgeous, but they add tons of drama and length without being too over-the top. The V-shaped hairs add a fun a whimsical feel. They are SO lightweight and comfortable to wear, too.

UGH. SO PRETTY.
I hope you enjoyed this look and will hopefully try it out! If you have light brown eyes like me, then you must try it. They will POP.

Have a great week, loves! See you all again soon!
<3

  2. This is so flippin pretty, I adore that lid color! Just this evening I was wracking my brain, trying to think if I had a gorgeous deep blue like that in my collection. If I don't, I need one! I love Sapphires, they are my birthstone<3 I had a gold sapphire ring my dad gave me when I was young but it had an accident so I had to stop wearing it and now I don't know where it is, so sad :(

    I also have lightish brown eyes and I love me some blue eyemakeup so I gotta try this! Thanks so much for posting!!<33

  14. Thank you. Yes, I use photoshop to remove imperfections such as redness in my eyes, fall out, stray lashes, etc...and also to brighten up the image. The makeup is all real though!

  26. This looks is gorgeous, as all of those you make. I love dark blue shades for eye looks.

  27. I just stumbled across your blog. I'm so glad I did! Your looks are lovely, and I'm green (or blue) with envy. I am a makeup addict, but much less adept at applying it, so I tend to be more neutral. Your photography is stunning...making it an eye-catching (pun intended) blog.

  28. Hi Ronnie,
    This is stunning, my friend! But then again, I'm very partial to your work. I was wondering, will you be doing looks with the other Sapphire colors? I would love to see your take on them as well as a "Scorpio Amber Topaz" look. Hopefully, we'll see them in the near future:)

  29. We share a birthstone! (And Sapphires are my younger sister's!) I like diamonds myself, but not so much on my eyelids. This is a beautiful look and definitely very mysterious and alluring. Love it!

  31. This is my favorite look of any make-up blog I've ever seen. It's STUNNING. Like everyone else I'd *LOVE* a tutorial if you can. You used a lot of colors and I'd like to see how you built them up. I'm going to try to re-create this. It's *incredible*

    ReplyDelete

  36. Absolutely beautiful! I tried looking for the sigma eyeshadows and they seem hard to find and very pricy. Wondering if you knew any cheap walmart colors I could pull off the same look with. I LOVE THE shimmer ! Is that something over everything or is it the sigma shadow? SO NICE. Im totally inspired <3
