How-to: The shimmering blue shadow at Joy Cioci S/S ’13

Joy Cioci - Spring 2013 makeup

The look:

Shimmering blue eyeshadow, glistening cheeks and pink lips.

The inspiration:

“The look is ‘mermaid meets the 1920s.’ Part vintage. Part fantasy. Eyes are bathed in shades of shimmering ocean blue. Cheeks are glistening in silvery pearl. The lips and [the] cupid’s bow are dramatized in soft pink.”—Uzo, international lead makeup stylist for NARS.
