Face of the Day: Blue Drama

I like to peruse the Internet in search of makeup inspiration. The other day, I stumbled on Keiko Lynn’s website. She shows off her makeup looks weekly and, frankly, they’re awesome.

So, I wanted to do my own version of her green eyes from February.

But, since I was already wearing blue and because I wanted to put my own spin on it, I did the look with blue instead of green. Here’s what I came up with:

Kablam! Totally some blue drama.

(Ignore the bad hair day.)

Now, different from Keiko Lynn’s look, my blues don’t have as much contrast. As in, my darkest blue isn’t as dark as her darkest green. Get it? But I still like how it turned out.

Since the eyes are so bold, I didn’t put anything on my lips. I totally went au naturale.

Now I’m ready for my close-up.

I lined all around my eyes in Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black Blue and coated my lashes in Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara in Glam Black.

I like it. And now I plan to use this method for other color combos.

(Did you watch the season finale of Castle the other night? OMG…that was one of the most intense things ever. Castle has really stepped up their game. Were you as shocked as I was?)
