Blue makeup inspiration

In a recent post I share my summer bucket list. I am happy that I’ve already done some of them and I pretend to do them again and again. One of the things that was on the list was to try blue makeup. In that post I also shared this easy tutorial. I gathered some beautiful photos so I can get a little inspired to see which one to try.

Eyes: fabulous gold eyeshadow

I have brown eyes and I have learned what colors suit me and what colors make me look like I had a fight with a makeup artist.

Gold looks good on brown eyes because it is part of that color palette (what the heck, gold look good on everything!). I like to wear a smoky eye and then fill it with gold on the inside crease. Sometimes I wear black liner on the top lid and a small golden line under the eye. Looks pretty good if you ask me.

On the bottom I have posted three makeup tutorials I found on Youtube. Enjoy!

Cat eye, red lips inspiration

We have to thank Ms. Marilyn Monroe for this one: black eyeliner and bright red lips are a fashion statement I love. I have to confess it is a high maintenance lip color because I find myself reapplying it several times. There are some nice no-smudge-long-wear reds out there but it’s not for me. My lips get weird and you better like the color because it is a-pain-in-the-neck to take it off.

So for this week I present you the cat eye-red lips inspiration:

My take on the trend:

DIY: red Easter eggs with Kool-Aid

egg5

I don’t drink Kool-aid. I know it is delicious because I tried it as a kid. My current situation is that I can’t have any food coloring because it can trigger migraines but even if it didn’t I would not drink it. But this is not a post about if Kool-aid is healthy or not. This is a post that gives you a nice-smelling Easter egg dye. You can use any color you like but remember the stronger the color the brighter the egg dye.

The instructions are really simple. Boil your eggs, let them cool. Pour a packet of Kool-aid inside your bowl of choice with cold water and a drop of vinegar. Put the boiled egg inside and wait two to three minutes per egg. I used a bowl big enough for four eggs at a time. Let dry.

Things to consider:

-If it’s not bright enough pour another pack of Kool-aid and let sit for another minute or two.

-At first they will look orange. Don’t panic, as they dry they get red.

-They will smell amazing.

-Careful with your fingers, try to use some plastic gloves if you have them. (I didn’t and my fingers looked like I had a first degree burn. Not nice).
