Pool Blue Eyes

The fact that my kids are out of school now means it's officially summer which equates to a lot of pool time.  And POOL water is typically BLUE which is my inspiration for today's look.  Yes, it's that simple.  Here's how to make pool blue work for you...











Get My Look:


The great thing about this look is that : It doesn't scream 1980-something and it's pretty easy to accomplish.  So to keep it from looking like you are running around in your leg warmers and sprayed high bangs, keep the blue shadow MATTE with no shimmer in sight.  I love the 2 blue shades included in this "Free Spirit" Revlon eyeshadow quad plus it also has a light sandy brown shade that I used just above the crease of my eye to warm up the look.  Also, the only eyeliner used is just along the lower inner waterline (I used a matching blue Revlon pencil), so no need to perfect the winged eye or anything like that on the upper lash line.  
Dust those blue shades all over both lash lines to give it that wash of color that feels light and summery, not heavy and hot.

Since the eyes are taking center stage, I kept the skin dewy looking with my MAC face & body foundation (N2) combined with my favorite coral shimmer cheek stain (I've owned "tipsy" for years!) to give my cheeks a warm sunny glow.  I finished off the look with the universal lip color MAC Viva Glam V lip glass, which looks good on EVERYBODY and goes with practically any eye makeup look I care to create.  This is how I keep that relaxing pool feeling all summer long...

Do you do have any favorite blue eye shadow colors?
