FALL 2018 Eyeshadow Color Series - Navy

The third color in my Fall 2018 Eyeshadow Color Series is Navy. This color looks especially beautiful on those with brown eyes.

Navy is often worn in the evening, and makes a lovely smokey eye. 

When wearing a darker eye color, I like to keep it close to the lash line.

Eye Pencils:

After applying eye primer to my top & bottom lids, I applied Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Empire to my waterline & lower lash line. Empire is a dark matte eggplant that leans navy. 

To the top lash line, I applied Urban Decay eye pencil in Ransom, a cool purple with a pearl finish.  This color also looks Navy in certain light.  I drew with the pencil shading in the corner of my eye, then blending it across my lid with a short dome brush. 


For powder eyeshadow, I used the Shayla x ColourPop Perception palette, and Urban Decay's Heroine (can be found in the Vice 3 palette).

From the Perception palette, I used three eyeshadow colors; Stallion (matte black with blue glitter), 14 (metallic navy), and Sassy (metallic eggplant with teal flip). 

The Urban Decay Through the Looking Glass palette also has a great navy (Bandersnatch)and bright blue if you have that palette instead. 

I applied one more layer of Empire liner to my lower lash line and smudged it with a Furless smudge brush. 

On a damp angled brush, I lined my upper lash line with Stallion from the Perception palette. Over that, using the same brush, I tapped 14 (metallic navy) over the top of Stallion


With a Bdellium Tools 777 flat eyeshadow brush, I applied Sassy eyeshadow to the eye lid, and blended the edges with a fluffy brush. 

Picking up my smudge brush again, I applied Heroine (matte navy) eyeshadow to the lower lash line over the pencil I previously placed there. 

I applied several coats of black mascara to my top & bottom lashes. If you have short and/or sparse lashes, apply falsies. 

For lips, I used Hourglass lip liner in Canvas and gloss in Child for a pale nude lip. 

I used a pink highlighter from Physicians Formula as blush.

The finished look: 

I kept the brows simple, and just brushed them with a dark brown brow gel. I love this look paired with a denim shirt and jeans. 

For a more edgy look, wear this makeup look with an all black outfit to really emphasize the metallic of the navy shadow.
