Ancient Egypt inspired look with L'Oréal Color Riche Le Khôl Crayon Azure Blue

After watching Ancient Egypt: life and death in the Valley of the Kings presented by Egyptologist Dr J. Fletcher on BBC Two a couple of weeks ago,  I was inspired to create a very easy but slightly edgy make up look using an 'Egyptian blue' eye pencil like L'Oréal Color Riche Le Khôl Crayon Azure Blue on both my eyes and lips!

In fact, did you know that the ancient Egyptians used to paint their lips not only in red but also in a bluey-black colour? 

   
Lips: L'Oreal Color Riche Le Khôl in Azure blue

Even though I am not sure I would dare go out with blue lips...I had fun playing with this super soft and intensely coloured eye pencil.  

Other products used on the eyelid: Chanel Quad Eyeshadow in Raffinement (shimmery mauve brown shade)
