Bring Out Those Baby Blues

I attended a luncheon this week with a lot of faculty at school, so I wanted to do a more professional makeup look. I turned to my go-to look neutral look. I have blue eyes -and sometimes green; they seem to have a mind of their own- and to accent the blue, it's best to use browns, yellows, and golds.

This is one of my favorite looks because it's so subtle yet so gorgeous. And the great news is, you don't have to have blue eyes to pull the look off. It looks great on all eye colors and skin tones!

*Once again, blogger washes out all the color when I upload my pics for some reason... It's really frustrating!

For the face I just used a light pink blush and highlight a nude lip.

I hope you have fun trying out this look. :)

If anyone tries any of looks I post, I would love to see pictures! I might even start doing some tutorials, I just don't know if anyone actually reads this or not!! Haha. 

**************** EDIT****************

How many times can I use the word "look" in one post?? Haha! :)

Arabic Makeup

I decided to do my interpretation of an every day, wearable version of Arabic makeup. I love Arabic makeup because it incorporates lots of color (which I love!) and heavy winged liner. If you aren't used to wearing a lot of makeup or a lot of color, you can tone down the look by using less color or just toning down the liner. Since Halloween is coming up, you can definitely get away with more dramatic makeup. So just give it a try! :)

I used yellow, gold, purple, pink, and brown eyeshadows and black liquid liner.

I used a neutral blush and a highlight on the cheeks. I contoured the lips with a brown lipstick, went over that with pink and added gold gloss for highlight.

Have fun creating your own colorful look! :)


*The colors in my picture are very muted when I upload them to Blogger. If anyone has any tips to help that, I would greatly appreciate it!
