Pastels and Plum.

TRIBAL BLUE….

31 Oct

Hello parfait beauties, first of all, I sincerely apologise for being M.I.A. Been very busy with work and fell ill a couple of times but I am back and ready to play. Today’s tutorial is inspired by this neck piece I got. From the moment I saw it, I was inspired but never really got round to creating to look. I have however defeated the laziness and we have ourselves what I like to call….THE TRIBAL BLUE look. I created this look using the 120 eyeshadow palette which I got a while back. For step by step pictures on how I created this look keep reading.
