After years of loving neutral eye makeup, I think I may be ready to move on to something more daring. Enter the Estée Lauder Blue Dahlia palette ($42). The first color collection from creative makeup director Tom Pecheux is full of rich turquoise, navy, and blue shades — all of which are bolder than what I usually wear.
I've already taken baby steps by wearing blue along the lash line, and this peacock-colored look was fun. So this time, I'm going to go for more drama. To see how it worked, keep reading.
So it looks a little different on camera than in real life, of course, but I'm just now experimenting with a bolder lip. I've always been self-conscious about it since they're on the thin side, but what the heck!
The lipstick is MAC in Dubonnet
Mascara/Eyeliner- Sonia Kashuk
Eyeshadow- MAC All that Glitters, and Mylar
Today I decided to go with relatively little makeup. I left the house with concealer and blush and a very light dusting of eye shadow. Then I got to Sugar HQ and, well, there was a lipstick just sitting there, and this mascara DID need to be tried out in case it's good for a review...
I am wearing:
Benefit Velvet Eye Shadow in Leggy
Exceptionnel de Chanel Noir Obscur mascara (good volume and drama, but I got greedy and over-applied. Oops.)
MAC lipstick in Red Full Stop
MAC Just a Pinch cheek stain on the apples of cheeks (not available anymore, but any sort of sheer cheek stain gets the same look)
La Mer The Radiant Concealer
I grabbed this screenshot from a frame in my e.l.f. Drama YouTube video, which explains the odd epression on my face. Lol!
For my eyes I used the elf Drama eyeshadow quad. On my lips I used N.Y.C. lipstick in Cafe w/N.Y.C. Liquid Lipshine in Cappucino in the center pout.
