Makeup Tutorial: Electric Blue Winged Liner Look

I'm pairing electric blue eyeliner with cooper eye shadow to create a bold summertime makeup look.

Coachella may have ended, but music festival season is far from over. For this week's makeup tutorial, I created a fun and colorful look that's perfect for a festival, concert, or just a night out on the town.

The best part? It's so quick and easy to recreate. Scroll down to learn how:

Get the Look:

Steps 1 & 2

blue eyeliner steps 1 & 2

Prime your lids with your favorite eyeshadow primer. I'm using the Urban Decay Primer Potion, but if you own the LORAC palette, it came with a primer that you can use.

Using the e.l.f. crease brush, I defined my crease with "Taupe" from the Pro palette. Next, I added a bit more depth and warmth with the shade "Sable." Only apply the tiniest bit of "Sable" -- I barely tapped the tip of the crease brush into the shadow, then applied it into my crease.

Step 3

Apply the copper shade "Garnet" all over your lid. I used the e.l.f. concealer brush as my shadow brush, but you can use whatever brush you prefer.

After I applied my first layer of eye shadow, I went back and spritzed my brush with water. Then, I picked up the eye shadow again and added a second layer of wet eye shadow.

Why, you ask? Well, using a shimmery eye shadow wet helps to bring out the sparkles and shimmer within the shadow that are usually not noticeable when it is dry. This helps add dimension and sheen to your eye makeup look.

I applied the shadow up to where I applied my crease color.

Step 4


Next, use the crease brush to blend out the crease and lid color. I didn't pick up any more of the crease shadows we used earlier.

I then used the e.l.f. blending brush to blend the crease color out to create a nice, seamless effect. Since there is no product on the blending brush, it's easier to blend out the colors without it getting muddy.

Step 5

Use a black liquid liner -- I chose the Wet 'n' Wild Megaliner in Black -- to create an ultra-thin line from near my inner corner to near the end of my outer corner of my eyes.

If you think liquid liner might be too hard for you to work with, then you can use a gel liner or even a pencil. Choose whichever one you are best at using. Funny enough, I'm actually terrible at working with pencil and gel liner.

Step 6


Here comes the fun part! Use your blue eyeliner (I'm using the Wet 'n' Wild Megaliner in Indigo Blue) to create a wing from where we left off with the black liner. Try your best and don't worry if the blue liner slightly overlaps, because it's okay if it does. It just adds to the effect.

Step 7


Lastly, add you favorite mascara and, if you need to, do any last-minute blending.

The Finished Makeup:


Here is the finished look! It may not look like much from far away, but the contrast of the cooper and blue makes for an interesting look close-up.

For the rest of my makeup, I applied a coral blush, which I dusted on with a fan brush for just a light touch of color. For lips, I chose a nude lip color, then topped it off with a nude gloss.
