Bubblegarm Sigma Competition - Teal and Cool 1

Again another entry for Bubblegarms contest. This is for the aqua blue brush set called 'Make me Cool'. Now cool has 2 meanings of course, but I didn't want to go for the one meaning 'cold' because I've already done that with the Illamasqua competition trying to look like 'Ice' and I couldn't really think of any ideas that wouldn't just be a rehash with slight differences. So I went for cool meaning trendy. Which was really difficult because I have absolutely no idea what's cool. I don't think I've ever been cool in  my entire life!
But still this is what I came up with:

So as you can see it's a smokey eye but using a bright teal colour instead of dark. I am not the best at smokey looks but i thought this turned out quite pretty :) Anyway smokey eyes seem quite cool to me, they're basically always in style and a bit punky. I smudged black pencil all over my eye then patted aqua shadow over the top. I also purposefully smudged my mascara together. The lipgloss is clear but with a slight blue sheen. Then I thought I'd add some smokey blue lips too.

Face: Nyx liquid makeup in LM01 Pale  mixed with Gosh Exceptional Wear in 11 Porcelain, Screen Face white loose powder, Barry M blush in 4
 Eyes: Nyx jumbo eye pencil in Cottage Cheese, Barry M jumbo black pencil, Aromaleigh Rocks shadow in Bluespark, Urban decay 24/7 pencil in Flipside, black mascara
Lips: Estee Lauder pure color gloss in 310 Clear Flash or Miss Sporty Hollywood Lip gloss in 410 Punk it Up.


  1. This is my favourite of all the looks so far. With the pink lips though. I think it is cool also in the sense you look a little detached, remote.

  2. This looks like one of those runway looks... with no eyebrows, blonde, slicked back hair... hot!

  3. I really love how the eyes turned out.

  4. The smokey blue looks great, especially with your blue eyes. :)

  5. Love this one, too! Can't decide if I like it better with clear lipgloss or the smokey blue lips - both are fantastic!

    Thank you! I think you're right about looking a bit detached but it could just be because of my big gormless face :P

    Thank you so much :)

    I see what you mean, only my version is much more scruffy :P But thanks!

    Thank you, I like it too, I find smokey eyes pretty hard :P

    Thank you so much!

    Thank you! I think i prefer the nudeish lips a bit but I like the blue lipgloss too :)

  7. this look is fabulous! I love the eye makeup :)
