Blue Belles

according to, blue eye shadow was once considered a bigger faux pas than a muffin top.  maybe we od'd on it during the 60's and 80's...but as with every trend the color is coming back. blue eye shadow is flattering on nearly everyone, including every skin tone, eye color, hair shade. blue on the eyes has a rather magical ability to brighten bloodshot eyes, perk up sallow-looking skin, and neutralize undereye circles.  it's like having your own plastic surgeon in a tube.

if you are beginning to experiment with eye color, an easy place to start is with eyeliner. swipe a bright blue on your lid and watch as it works wonder.  if you are feeling even braver, try my blue eye shadow tutorial:

to get some inspiration i found a few ladies who do blue just right.

Kate Bosworth likes the swipe.

just remember that makeup is here for fun, to express yourself and your style.  just enjoy it, and remember you are beautiful. be confident in that knowledge and you can pull off anything.



  1. I was at the store yesterday, and I had my eye on a blue/gray Revlon quad, but I was so hesitant to buy it. All I could think of was my mother's array of blue eyeshadows back in the 80's. But I also kept thinking about your blue eyeshadow tutorial, and it didn't look crazy or super 80's on you...I didn't end up getting it, but maybe I'll get brave and give it a try.

  2. thanks tiffany! i am bummed that we missed each other last week. your friend lindsay looked so great with her makeup. next time i'm in town let's get our makeover on ;)
