So… I tried to think up ways to make use of the very blue-sy row of colors but I will admit that my days of donning blue eyeshadows are well over.
I still like them and I recall my smokey blue wearing days fondly but for some reason, maybe because I am so tired all the time now, I feel a full out smokey blue eye look would just emphasize the fatigue on my face.
Though it is a color I still like to revisit, in small doses and paired with the right amount of neutrals to keep it from looking too ‘druggy’ on me. If you’re a blue loving and donning fiend then yes, please go ahead and scoff at my wimpy way of wearing it but for ladies who are seeking out ways to wear color (but not wear color, hurhur geddit?) with the Vice 3 palette, then maybe this look might resonate with you!
As they say, a leopard never changes its spots right?
Once a neutral lover, always a neutral lover… Though okay, I’ll admit colors are fun to don and I’ll feature more of that in the upcoming Vice 3 looks.
Vice 3 aside, I also want to give a shoutout to the eyeliner that I have on.
You see that blue sparkle amidst a darkened base? As well as the deep dark and creamy black I have on my lower lashline? Yes those are the works of the Urban Decay 24/7 Dual Ended Glide-on Pencil (from their Black Magic pencil set) in LSD (the blue) and Perversion (the black).
So… I heard that LSD is a name of a drug and I get Urban Decay’s ‘edginess’ to go with something like that but it makes me wary to say something like “I really love LSD”.
Which in this case I do… but I’ll have to clarify that it is the pencil liner I love.
I’ll talk about Urban Decay’s Black Magic 24/7 Pencil liner set again, but if you’re curious it launches tomorrow (along with Vice 3).
One more last shoutout, the lips.
I have on a recent favorite, the Shu Uemura Vision of Beauty Vol 01 lipstick in Orange.
I don’t have a true creamy and straight out orange lip color in my stash, the closest of which is a coral / reddish-orange which ultimately looks red so this little fella is such love.
Though pity that with it being such a stand-out color, in a way different to a bold red, it is not something you can pop on everyday because it can be a little tricky to match.
But it is a beautiful shade and if you’re adventurous with your lip shades, it’s always good to have an orange in the stash!
