This week's Trend on Trial is blue eyeshadow. Now, there's a reason I have endless eyeshadow palettes with the blue shadows fully intact, never touched. I dabbled with blue eyeshadow as a young teenager, and there is another reason I've never since dabbled. And finally, there's a reason blue eyeshadow belongs in the Eighties!
It's safe to say, this was another trend I was not looking forward to trialing. Despite what Joanna says, I do not believe I am radiating Summer with this look. I wholeheartedly believe that no-one looks good in sky blue eyeshadow (deep blue however is different!), and I apologise to anyone reading this who may be a regular blue eyeshadow wearer.
So without further ado, here are the photos:
Without wanting to look too much like a painted lady I ensured that there was no pink on my face, no blusher, no pink lips, I did not want to re-create high school days. You can see I also forgoed my beloved black eyeliner. I'm not going to lie, that was partly because I knew I was immediately going to take this off once this post was published, and I didn't want to waste time applying the perfect sweep of black.
I think you can tell it's fairly obvious I didn't like this look. But I'd love to hear what you think? And I'm more than happy to be proved otherwise, so if you are a blue eyeshadow fan then let me know!
all about the girl
P.S. Looking at these pictures I realise I really need my haircut, if anyone would like to come and sort it out for me I can pay you in cups of tea and maybe even a chocolate digestive?
