My BLUE products:
Maybelline Great Lash "I See Blue" Limited Edition mascara - hard to find now!
But they do have a Royal Blue alternative here, $5.99 that isn't as bright as the above.
I might or might not have taken a little inspiration from Jessica Alba at a Philip Lim for Target shindig...
I feel like a super hero mom when I wear bright blue shadow! I don't know what it is about punchy ocean blue eyes that makes me feel like a combo of superman + wonder woman! This look at me makeup look makes me feel like I can scale tall buildings! Well, not really, but I can at least handle a temper tantrum or two. And my daughter ALWAYS comments on my eyeshadow when it's this bright, she loves it!
Of course there's a delicate balance when wearing a bold eye shadow shade like this, so my keys to pulling it off are:
- ground the blue with a neutral brown or taupe shadow right in the crease of the eyelid to give some definition and warm the eyes up a bit. I used MAC "cork" as usual. Are you tired of me talking about this perfect brown yet??
- wearing the colored mascara only on the upper lashes, and using my usual black mascara on the lower lashes.
- applying a black or brown liner on the upper lash line so my lashes don't blend into my lid (which is kinda the idea when I matched my mascara to my shadow, but I still wanted a little more definition!).
- keeping the rest of my makeup super soft and non-confrontational with my bright peepers!! I'm wearing Too Faced Leopard Blushing Bronzer & Fresh Sugar lip treatment in" Sugar Honey."
What types of makeup and colors make you feel SUPER?!!
