Rainy Days Bring the Blues

With the gorgeous SoCal sun hiding behind these rain clouds lately, I was feeling rather blue this morning- literally! While vivid blues look great on wild nights out, I thought I would try a wearable blue eyeshadow today. As my office is business formal, I wanted to keep it as subtle as possible while still being true blue. Blue eyeshadows, in my opinion, really bring out brown eyes. To keep it "work-friendly" I paired my arsenal of blues with neutral colors and didn't bring the shadow all the way too far past the crease. I worked with MAC's Blanc Type all over the lid and Vex in the corners. I used Moon's Reflection very lightly on the crease blended Atlantic Blue on the corners and Meet the fleet in the outer V of the eye. I finished my eyes with MAC's Blacktack fluidline and 2 coats of Revlon's Grow Luscious mascara. Keeping the rest of the look cool, I used my new Darkly My Dear blush and Viva Glam Gaga on the lips. Do you like to wear bright eyeshadows in the work environment?

  1. Very pretty look. I actually don't wear much bright colors are work, so I always stick to neutrals. However, I do amp up the colors by using a bright liner.
