If you're anything like us, you can't stay away from Pinterest, it's true, it's addicting. But this look caught our eye and stopped us in our tracks, really, and we figured we just had to feature a shop the look for less here... for you. So that's what we'll continue to do...isn't it just lovely? Ready to get this look? Check out the easy steps and how to get it for less!

First, get all of your lovely beauty tools and products ready. This look will call for jet black eye liner, liquid and pencil, a bright blue (or any color you'd like to accent your eyes with) plus a volumizing mascara.
Prime your eye with primer or a foundation for a longer lasting hold on the eye shadow and even out any redness of discoloration on your lids. This look calls for a clean, classic appearance, with a running of black along your upper lash line. Next, apply the blue shadow on your eye lid, then a neutral shimmery shadow on your browbone to highlight. You may blend in a neutral color into the crease for a more dramatic look, but be sure to blend, blend, blend. Apply the blue shadow eye shadow color onto the bottom lash line.
On the inner tear duct, apply that shimmery, neutral shadow you used to highlight your browbone to open your eyes and really make them pop.
Curl your lashes and get the liner ready (our pick is Dior's style liner in noir black) ! Apply on the top lash line and wing out if you wish. Line the bottom lash line with the same liquid liner. Start before the corner of the eye when applying the liner, this way you won't be 'closing up' your eyes. Gently press the liner into the very edge of the eye, build up gradually rather than applying one sweeping line, or you'll end up smudging or creating a messy line. 

Now for that pop of color, dab, sweep and press the blue hue eyeshadow in the inner tear duct and line the bottom and top lash lines with this second color.
