Becoming a Blue Eyed Beauty!

Blue eye makeup is IN and not in a Marcia Brady way. Check out the latest blue beauties along with expert techniques on how to apply BOLD BLUE color in a feminine, fashionable way…

“Blue can be gorgeous or a little 70’s prom, so it must be dealt with cautiously,” remarks Too Faced Founder and Creator, Jerrod Blandino. “Brown eyes tend to look better in brighter hues like teal, peacock, or turquoise. Green eyes look great in a plumy or lavender based blue, (think iris or periwinkle), and naturally Blue eyes look best in navy or smoky cobalt.”

Invasion of the Smurfs!

smurfs1.jpg

I am not sure when the Surf revival started but I have noticed old Smurf episodes on Comcast cable. And last week I saw Smurfs stuffed toys at Target and now Smurf makeup! I was a big Smurf fan for the time I was allowed to watch it (my mom deemed that Gargamel and Azreal were not good influences and Smurfs got banned) and had a few Smurfette toys.

I love that I  get to relive all the shows I loved as a kid as they make their comeback. But when I think of Smurfs and makeup, Mimi from the Drew Carey show pops to mind. Luckily the masterminds at Too Faced mixed Smurfs and makeup without making it too Mimi. The colors are fun and cute and who doesn’t love the nostalgia of seeing Smurfette on their compact?
