FOTD: Blues For Babely Brown Eyes
by Kham

Wearing:
Winged Liner - Maybelline Line Stiletto Ultimate Precision Liquid Eyeliner
Waterline - NYX Eyeliner Pencil; black
Lower Lashline - ELF Resort Eyeshadow Palette
Falsies - eBay; 015
Lips - NYX’s Sierra 

I know, I know — blue eyeshadow and really, blue eye-anything, can be intimidating. It is, however, a color that happens to compliment brown eyes so well. If you’re not feeling up to doing a full-on blue eyeshadow look, try adding just a bit beneath your lower lashline or waterline to pair with your winged eyeliner.

The coolness of the blue will bring forth the warmth of your beautiful brown eyes and make them pop. Plus, a little touch of color is always fun to experiment with, so go ahead and give it a try!
