Sometimes you just have to have a little bit of FUN with your makeup!! I wanted to create a look using blue shadow that didn't make me look like an extra in the "Last Friday Night" Katy Perry Video (though I wish I was!)! I think the key is definitely to keep the rest of your makeup toned down. I didn't know if a completely blue eye look would look okay with my blue eyes but I LOVE how it came out! 

Don't ask me where this insane tan I got came from?? I've been using SPF 30 on my face everyday...I guess that goes to show you that you can get a Summer glow even when using sunscreen! When I worked in a tanning salon years ago we would always tell people that when tanning outside in the Summer to ALWAYS use sunscreen, thats the best way to get a great tan & no one believed us! Dry skin reflects the sun...aka if you have dry skin you will get ZERO color!! I'm as pale as can be in the Winter but tan very easier in the Summer. Downside of me getting tan on my face...crazy freckles on my nose!!! It makes my nose look like 2 shades darker than the rest of my face & I need to use foundation to make my skin look one color!

L O V I N G this blue eyeliner!! I need to use it more often! Colored eyeliner is an awesome way to add a little bit of color to your look when you're stuck in a makeup rut. I especially love adding lots of black mascara to my upper & lower lashes with colored liner so your eyes really POP!

**Did you know that when you use blue instead of black to line your waterline it makes the whites of your eyes appear whiter & brighter!!**
