Spring blues

I promised a while ago to do some looks using the new Annabelle trios - first up is the Blue Hue trio:

Used:
  • Gosh Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick in Love that Beige! as a base
  • Annabelle eyeshadow trio in Blue Hue
  • MAC Kohl Power in Feline (thanks Sugabum!)
  • Annabelle Glitterama liner in Blue Comet (blue glitter over the pencil liner)
  • Marcelle Volume Precision mascara

The blues in the Annabelle trio were gorgeous, but I found that the yellow undertones in my skin would eat them up giving it a more faded turquoise look on my skin.

So I used the Gosh shadow stick as a base / canvas and it made the blues really pop! Any champagne to beige toned base will do. The Gosh stick is a pretty good dupe for the MAC shadesticks though.

such a beautiful eye look. I can never wear sea blue for some reason but the color blends in for you just right.

Beautiful look! I also find that blues turn greener on me as the day progresses. A lot of colors turn warmer on me, although TFSS helps a little. :)
