Get mod makeup vibes with this electric blue waterline look

Take a trip back in time with this electric blue waterline look when mid-century fashion trends were big on aqua, while the striking eyeliner gives off serious mod vibes. For the ultimate effect, pair the style with a shift dress in a bright print. No matter what you wear it with, this fresh, fun makeup look is guaranteed to turn heads.
The key component to this can’t-look-away makeup style is using two shades of blue on your waterline. Meanwhile, golden brown eye shadow provides depth and warmth that balances out the aqua tones. Flamboyant falsies are a must, since the mod era was all about over-the-top lashes. Nude lips are also a common feature of mod makeup and help keep the attention on the eyes.

Instructions
1. Massage moisturizer into your face. With your fingertips, smooth primer into your oil-prone areas, like under your eyes.
2. Apply several lines of foundation directly to your cheeks, chin, forehead and nose. With a foundation brush, blend in the foundation using quick strokes and a stippling motion.
3. Dab on a light concealer under your eyes and onto your eyelids. Blend it in with your fingertip. Apply a few lines of darker concealer or contouring cream along your cheekbones, around your hairline and around the bridge of your nose. Blend it in with the foundation brush.
4. With a powder brush, stipple setting powder on under your eyes and on your eyelids. Sweep complexion powder onto your cheekbones and around your hairline to blur the contouring you did in step 3.
5. Stipple blush onto the apples of your cheeks.
6. With your fingertip, dab eye shadow primer onto your lids.
7. With a fluffy eye shadow brush, apply “So Fetch!” or a terra-cotta shadow to your crease and the outside of your lid.
8. With the same brush, apply “Step Up” or a light brown shadow to the middle of your lid.
9. With a small shadow brush, apply “Seriously” or a medium brown shadow to the middle and outside of your lid.
10. With a shader brush, apply “Sparks” or a shimmery bronze shadow to the middle and inside of your lid.
11. Line the outside of your waterline with “Peacock” or a light blue eye pencil. Line the inside of your waterline with “Cobalt” or a dark blue eye pencil. This will give your eyeliner an ombré effect.
12. Apply false eyelashes. Allow the glue to set.
13. Line your lips with “Nude Suede Shoes” or a light peach lip liner. Apply “Star Love” or a matching lip gloss. Your blue waterline look is complete!
