FOTD: Seafoam Blues & Greens

I'm actually quite ashamed to say that I took these photos almost 2 months ago and haven't had time to post them since. I'm a bit of a traveller these days, posting whenever I can squeeze in an hour of me-time, so you'll have to excuse the delay. Anyways, I realized this was probably subliminally inspired by NARS Summer 2011 collection, and I think it's still up to date in this sunny July weather.

To be completely honest, it took me a good while to apply these Ardell flares of false eyelashes... I find strip falsies much easier to apply. What is your take on flares vs full strips?

I wanted to play a bit more with my Manly 120 eyeshadow palette, and I think the shades turned out very vibrant, rather fabulous if I dare say so myself. You can check the palette out in more detail in this post. I also lined the waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on pencil in Electric. The base is Graftobian HD Glamour Creme and for the blusher, I went with La Femme Pink Velvet.

I had this weird swollen upper lip thanks to a rather nasty canker sore, and to anyone struggling with one, I do recommend taking a Vitamin B supplement, it really did help mine. Lipstick is MAC Jest, sadly discontinued.

I had lots of fun doing the look, but I would still be very hesitant to rock that blue eyeshadow anywhere else other than my living room. Do you ever wear blue shades on your eyes and if so, how do you wear them?


  1. pretty! i wore a bit of blue liner yesterday (maybe in celebration of the 4th?), and it reminded me of how much i enjoy it...in small bits.

    As for lashes, I have an easier time with the singles as opposed to the full strips. I'm not sure why--I can't say I am a master of either..but I seem to get the full sets all wrong!

  2. Beautiful FOTD :)
    I could never pull of an eye look like that but I sport a blue water line now and again.

  3. @fantastic: Hahah, we just got back from the Olympic Peninsula in time for the fireworks show we watched from the Kirkland Marina... I don't think there was anything left of make-up! I guess I need to practice my single lash application skills some more :)

    @Ashley: I do like ultramarine a lot, but I guess I too can only wear it in the form of an eyeliner! x

  4. Very pretty! Your lips look so full and gorgeous!

  5. This is gorgeous, very mermaid like!

  6. This is beautiful. I was looking at this post last week at work and someone looked over my shoulder and said 'Which model is that'? :D
