MOTD | Electric Hues

Sparks ignite when we collide. Your cobalt eyes pierce through this jilted heart of mine. Let us entwine with coil and wire. Static shocks run through our veins when we set this power ablaze. We conduct jolts, you and I. These jolts to electrocute and execute.

Tell them what we are. We're magnetic, we're voltaic, we're electric.

This is the bi-monthly reminder that Hey Bash was originally a makeup blog.

Coloured Eyebrows are the best. I've said this before, in the number of times I've featured coloured brows. The posts have disappeared now due to sheer embarrassment. My love for coloured brows still remains. I wear them on occasion, when I'm bored and aim to have fun.

And that's the look. It's fun, a simple but bold look. Electric Hues is a subtle nod to the bright colours of the 80s, with a hint of that edgy rocker. I doubt Everyday Jane would wear this to work. This is what Everyday Jane would wear at night, if you get my drift.

I'm nervous to show you my wild, unkempt brows. I don't pluck them, nor do I want to right now. It's makeup days like these when I wish I did. When the closeup shots are required and there's no way to hide these awkwardly sparse hairs. Messy brows distract from the otherwise presentable look

But if you aren't distracted by these bawdy brows, here is a quick tutorial...

After applying foundation and concealer, I baked my face using Elf High Definition Powder. Then used NYX Wonder Stick in 01 Universal and NYX Blush in Taupe to contour and highlight. I applied Essence Silky Touch Blush in 050 Sweetheart to bring some colour back in. 

With your base done, start with the eyebrows. Comb through using a spoolie with Catrice AllRound Concealer in the lightest shade. This will lighten the hairs if you have dark hair like me. Line the inner half of the eyebrow with an angled brush and Urban Decay Electric Palette in Chaos. When you approach the arch, take a clean angled brush and fill the arch with the Electric Palette in Jilted. Where the two colours meet, blend it together using the angled brushes. I applied Electric Palette's Gonzo & Revolt in the inner corner. Finish with Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel.  

For the eyes, I applied Too Faced Shadow Insurance as a primer.  Then with my trusty Urban Decay Naked Basics in Walk of Shame all over the lid. I blended Naked Basics in Naked 2 in the outer corner and patted Electric Palette in Revolt in the inner corner. The shadows were kept simple to keep the focus on the liner. I lined my upper and lower waterline in Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil in 02 Hot Chocolate. Then with Naked Basics in Crave, drag and blend the black into the under eye.

For the coloured liner, use the eyebrows as a guide. Line Electric Palette in Chaos in the inner corner and ending just where the arch is. Then use Electric Palette in Jilted to fill the rest of the line and create the wing. Blend away. You can make the wing as thick as you want, but I decided to keep it thin. Follow the wing with NYX Collection Noir Black Liner. Apply NYX Full Figured Mascara and falsies like Essence Beauty Secrets Fancy Lashes applied with DUO Adhesive.

For the lips, I lined it with Essence Lip Liner in 13 Translucent then applied NYX Simply Vamp Lip Cream in She Devil. I experimented with a two-colour lip just like the eyes and the brows but it didn't work. It's best to keep the lips dark to bring focus to the eyes. 

And then done! Perfect face to get out of the bedroom, stay in the living room, and wash it off twenty minutes later.

'I should make a proper makeup tutorial one of these days.'

It's one of those phrases I catch myself saying constantly but never actually going through with the promise. I do that often. Promising to do more makeup tutorials but having no clue how to, when to and what to do. I'm trying to keep to this promise though, just wondering what kind of looks I should do.

  62. I want to give this a go! I'm glad I've seen it done on dark brows, otherwise I think I would have been doubtful it would work on dark hair like mine... And your brows look just fine to me. I am too currently leaving my brows unkept (for the first time ever) and embracing their natural bushiness.


  63. Dang girl. <3 I totally want to attempt this for Halloween. :)

  64. Wow, it looks amazing! It's so different! I wish I could rock a dark lip like you do!


  65. I used to give myself colourful (and even glittery) brows all the times a few years back and I've really wanted to try it again lately. I think I may have to try this look and I hope it will look as good as it does on you ;) !

    xx, Charlie

  66. Those brightly colored eyebrows are so beautiful and just scream fun! We have to try your technique out next time we feel a little bold, you look lovely!
