FOTD: Matte Blue Sugarpill Inspired

I was on YouTube the other day and I came across this tutorial using the Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette which intrigued me to check out the Sugarpill website where I came across the Cold Heart palette. I was seriously tempted to purchase it, but I already have MUFE # 92, which is suppose to be a dupe for Sugarpill's Poison Plum - and I already have a matte white and matte black, and probably have a matte blue so I decided against it. I ended up playing around with what I had and came up with this look:

UDPP (primer)
MAC Soft Ochre paintpot (base)
Wet n' Wild Pride palette matte white e/s (inner corner)
Blues from 88 Original palette (lid and outer third)
MAC Deep Truth e/s (crease)
Matte black e/s from 88 palette (in outer V)
Wet n' Wild Brulee e/s (as highlight)
MAC Femme Fi e/s (right under brow arch)
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
CoverGirl Lashblast Fusion mascara
Bonne Bell Eye Definer e/l in Glow (on waterline)
MAC Night Maneuvers e/s (to fill in brows)

MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW30 (on undereyes)
MAC Prolong Wear Foundation in NC35
MAC MSFN in Medium Plus (to set foundation)
NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny (to contour)
NYX blush in Angel
MAC Pinch o' Peach blush

Rimmel Moisture Renew l/s in Nude Delight
Revlon Super Lustrous l/g in Life's A Peach

I've never done an all matte look before, and I really liked how it turned out! There are a few things I would of changed, like maybe using a different highlight because it came off too white - but that's because I really packed it on to bring down the blue a bit because I had blended it to far up. I also would of added false eyelashes, but I was in a rush and didn't want to mess the look up and was wearing glasses anyways.

I also created an angle by using my concealer to clean it up. But looking back at photos I should of blended it just a bit because it looks odd with the highlight colour not blending into my skin.

Overall, I'm happy with the look and liked how it turned out. Definitely got my creative juices flowing (:

Really pretty look!! The blending is amazing! I've only ever done one matte look too, we should definitely do them more often! I'm actually making a "matte only" wishlist haha :)

My mum has good skin. So I just briefly took one of her SKII( to use, which I assume is a moisturizer. It's good man I tell you! She gave me a small bottle of eye cream before but the effects weren't that great and I stopped using. But my mum's moisturizer is good! I can feel it reacting once I applied it
