Homigoodness I can actually wear blue makeup
Whenever I’ve tried to wear blue shadow in the past it’s given me the appearance of illness, under-eye bruising, and general whorishness. That’s probably because I’ve always slapped it in the creasular region, or tried to wear blue with other cool colors like royal purples or teals or greens. It just didn’t work, no matter what I did, and I’d given up on wearing all of the lovely blues and purples that I’d somehow accumulated, knowing full well that I’d only be able to gaze upon their loveliness in my makeup drawers.
I do believe I’ve bested the bitch this time around.
The right eye is actually a touch more color accurate in the second and third photos, I don’t know what’s going on with my camera.
But notice, if you please, how not-weird this is compared to that Mimi look I did earlier this year. Gaze upon the flattering Ravenclaw hues, that row of sweet, sweet bronze protecting my delicate yellow skin from the harsh cold of the blue lid color.
In short, I am rather in love with this color combo and the way it works with my skin. Today is a good day. Except for the mascara, I don’t know what the hell is going on with that douche, making my eyeslashes look all grey and nasty. Urg.
