I am so suggestible. It’s really insane. One of the best things about living in a cable free zone is the limited exposure to commercials. Now Rimmel and Maybeline can’t get to me with their false promises of super long “falsie” mascara. I win, universe! (Ok, maybe no blogging after caffeine and sugar!)
But back to my point:
I was reading my favorite beauty blog and they did this whole post about using pastel in your eye shadow repertoire. See what I mean? http://thebeautydepartment.com/2014/05/soften-up/
I dug through what I already had but hit a bit of a road block since I recently moved and really cleaned out my make up. I decided to run through the drug store and see if I could get anything on the cheap. What I came up with was this —
It’s great because it has so many different colors. It was fun to shake up my daily make up routine. I enjoyed trying new things without being too wild. It was a fun way to add a little color and a little fun into my outfit.
Check out my experiment:
First I tried the green… which I LOVED!
Then the pink…
Then the blue!
I have to admit I kind of loved the blue because it had a really great like 60s vibe. Then I watched Funny Face this weekend. And was completely and totally captivated and inspired all over — check out Kay Thompson in Funny Face!
As Maggie Prescott, she rocked — and inspired me to try the bolder version!
Here’s some other people making pastels their own. If you are feeling brave, send me those pics!
