Why So Blue FOTD

Well, in this case it's more of an aqua color.

I have to be honest, I HATE pastel colors. Screw those Easter colors. When I do colors (I'm more neutral 99% of the time) I like the vibrant OMG IN-YOUR-FACE colors.

However, with the launch of Fashion Flowers, I had to create a look using MAC Aqua e/s. Not gonna lie, I was freaking out because blues generally don't look good on me (my golden skin turns blue into an ugly green color), not to mention light light aqua blue.

After some experiment, I found out that when you wear any unconventional color on the lid, the look can still be very wearable as long as you have a more neutral shade in the crease.

So this is my look:

What I used:

Face:
--MAC F&B foundation in C2
--EL Doublewear max coverage in creamy vanilla on pimples
--NYC bronzer in Sunny

Cheeks:
--MAC Harmony to contour <--works surprisingly well
--MAC Blush in Blushbaby
--MAC Soft & Gentle MSF

Eyes:
--MAC Soft Ochre paintpot
--MAC e/s in Aqua
--MAC e/s in Kid in the crease
--MAC e/s in Dazzlelight to highlight
--MAC e/s in Deep Truth on lower lash line
--Stila smudgepot in Black
--Stila kajal liner in Topaz
--Model 21 falsies in #36 with half of #25T on the outer corner

Lips:
--I later threw on Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Monte Carlo <--LOOOOOOOOOOVE!! It would TOTALLY be mine if it weren't $32 + tax

Close ups: I know I messed up the liner, but no one paid attention, LOL!


More cam whore

I really like how this look is so summery. I can't deny that I'm starting to like aqua a little more now. I hope this look inspired you to try out some "scary" colors. You might really like the result. Remember, it's just makeup. If you don't like the result, just wash it off. :)

Have a great day guys!
