Contoured face, smokey blue eyes and orange lips!

On a regular day, my preference is for an overall natural makeup look: translucent skin, minimal eye makeup and a bright lip.  Today, at the behest of my husband (who is very much a fan of smokey cat eyes + bold lips…. together!) I tried a new look that took me outside of my comfort zone (and monthly makeup budget).  We took a trip to Sephora and spent some time with the lovely Olivia, who taught me all about face contouring and the smokey blue eye. What started as a fun exercise to please my husband and the relentless makeup junkie that lives in my head, ended up being a liberating experience.  I learned that my brown eyes glow against a backdrop of blue, face contouring can really look natural and two bold colors (blue and orange) together create neutral awesomeness!! Who knew, instead of my usual bold lips, I could have a bold FACE! Take a look!
