This is NOT Your Mom’s Blue Eyeshadow!

This post is in direct response to a post written several months ago by Mo called, Color Intervention 101.”

“Every day I decide who I want to be and apply my makeup accordingly. I’m known around these parts for outlandish color combinations and a foolhardy devotion to the newest thing. Is it really my expertise that makes these experiments work?  Of course, I’m a genius, didn’t anyone tell you?  Actually, it’s just the fact that I feel comfortable enough to try something new.  A lot of the wearability of a color comes directly from you and your confidence.”- Mo

So yesterday, Mo sent me this picture.  This is an incredible look for you Mo!

My Mom used to wear her hair with the same cut (different color) in the 70’s.  I will have to round up a picture to show you.

Mo labeled this picture “Tragic.”  The only thing tragic about this is picture is that I don’t know how to re-create this look for myself, and I don’t know if I could pull it off either.  Tell all Mo; this is fabulous!

    That is the “Submarine” eye shadow from MAC’s Naughty Nauticals collection. It’s almost like “Electric Eel” but closer to a royal blue than Electric is. It also becomes a bit darker but incredibly gorgeous when applied wet because it has a subtle frosty sheen while Electric is a matte formula.
    My lip color is the “Ms Fizz” Dazzleglass, painted on pretty heavy to get a nice strong color. I probably could have layered it over a lipstick for similar results though.
    I sometimes wonder if I go too over the top and start to look a little drag queen-ish, but a thumbs up from you makes me feel better Jami!!
