FOTD – Kim Kardashian Inspired Electric Blue Eye Makeup

I can’t believe I haven’t yet done a Kim Kardashian inspired makeup look yet. Queen of the “kontour”, love her or hate her, you can’t deny that she looks fer-lawless pretty much, erm, always? To be fair, in order to achieve this look I had to use a hell of a lot of makeup, most of it very full coverage, and I kinda feel like I’ve faceplated a cake made out of cement… It’s not for everyday (unless of course that is your thing, in which case rock it) but it would look stunning for the evening or special occasion. Kim’s signature look consists of a flawless base (obvs), neutral brown/gold eyes, heavy highlighting and contouring, peachy cheeks and nude glossy lips. So it was refreshing to see her upload this picture the other day to Instagram in which her makeup artist Mario had opted for an electric blue eyeshadow:

It makes her eyes pop and it’s inspiring to see her playing with a bit of colour for once! Here are the products I used to achieve this look:
