How To Create A Bold Blue Eye Look Like Keshia Knight Pulliam
Friday, July 8, 2011
Keshia Knight Pulliam (aka “Little Rudy Huxtable” from The Cosby Show) is all grown up and is giving me the blues – in a good way, of course! She spent the Fourth of July weekend in New Orleans participating in the ESSENCE Music Festival and I must say that I was rather surprised (but in a totally good way!) to see her rocking such a bold blue eye. LOVE!
Her eye makeup actually inspires me to step outside of my comfort zone and give blue eyeshadow a shot. (Because, as you know, blue can be a tough color to pull off .) If the color is too faint you’ll barely see it, and if you wear too much blue, you’ll end up looking like a 1970’s throwback (but totally not in a good way. EW.) Keshia got it just right and I say if she can pull it off, so can we!
Here’s how we can rock the blue eyeshadow look:
1. Prep the entire eye area with an eyeshadow primer.2. Next, apply a matte, powder, blue eyeshadow over your entire lid.3. For a bold, highly, pigmented look, wet your crease brush (with either water from a spray bottle or MAC Studio Moisture Fix) then dip into a royal blue eyeshadow and apply to your crease.4. Use this same brush and eye shadow and apply a thick line along your top lashline5. Blend a neutral brown slightly above your crease and up toward your eyebrow.6. Highlight the brow bone using a shadow slightly lighter than your skin.7. Take out your black eyeliner and carefully line your top and bottom waterline.8. Next apply a strip of false eyelashes. Once your glue is dry, apply 2 coats of black mascara.
For your skin:
1. Prep the skin with moisturizer and then apply a foundation primer.
2. Conceal any dark areas or blemishes, then apply your favorite cream or liquid foundation and loose powder.
On your lips:
1. Apply a nude lipstick.
2. Finish the lips off with a clear, shiny gloss

So, are you feeling Keshia’s bold, blue eyeshadow? How many of you love this look just as much as I do and plan on rocking it for yourselves!?
