Playing around with Nars Outremer (EOTD)

Merry Christmas everyone!!! I hope you all had a great Christmas. I got so spoilt this christmas firstly with some new makeup products and secondly with a new SLR camera! 

Of course I was super excited. It's my first SLR and I'm such a beginner with it but even still I've managed to capture a few amazing photos (on auto of course haha). It's a Cannon EOS550 Rebel and was given to me by my amazing boyfriend Blake and my mum and her soon to be husband. I've included a picture of Tasha I shot with it this morning down below :)

Anyway back onto today's post, as you may have seen I recently purchased Nars Outremer eyeshadow. It's a gorgeous vibrant cobalt blue colour and created this eye look while playing with it on saturday, which I thought I would share with you guys.




I wanted to keep this eye look relatively simple due to the boldness of the blue so all I did was apply UDPP all over the lid to prime the eye. Then I applied MAC's Brule eyeshadow all over the eye to assist with the blending of Outremer. I then applied Nars Outremer with a MAC 217 brush starting from the outer corner, building up the colour and blending it inwards. To finish I just added a coat of Covergirl Lashblast Volume mascara. 

I hope you like this look and you all had a wonderful Chrissie (or whatever holiday you celebrate!) Here's to an even better new years :)

What did you guys get for xmas??

I really love what you did with that colour. I'm a bit of a closet blue eyeshadow fan but am always a bit fearful of wearing it.
Your dog is cute too!
