WATERCOLOR EYES Have Made a Comeback

Ciao bella,

Remember that Blue eyeshadow youd wear almost every day? The fad started in the 60s for prom. However, each decade owns its shade of Blue. In the early 60s it was a matte, no shine. It was very light, like a Baby Blue that covered your whole lid! Then in the 70s, that Blue became deeper. Truly a pretty color. In the disco days of the 80s, the Blue had a beautiful shimmer-like sheen. Color was applied way above the lash line and fanned out at the corners. Time to dance! A color palette which contained pots of glimmered color was called Stage Light. All so daring, beautiful, and very 80s! Shine on!

In the 90s, I truly believe that ladies took a break from the Blue shadow. It zoomed out of style in a nanosecond! I never really saw it much. It wasnt on the runways, fashion mags, nails, or anywhere. Guess what? This year, its back! All shades of Blue! Watercolor Blue, Turquoise Blue, Blue-green, Aquamarine, Baby Blue, and dark Navy Blue for dramatic eyes!

They now can be found in matte or, as I love, a nice Shimmery shade as well as Glittery, Frosted, and/or Shiny. From the drugstore to your fave cosmetic counter is where youll score the shade you love. The Blue shades bring out all eye colors!

Last year I purchased a fat Blue eyeliner/shadow pencil which I loved. This year I bought two Bluish/Turquoise liners in a Gel pencil and soft glide pencil. Im looking toward a colorful spring! My fave Turquoise color that is gorgeous as a liner is a powder I bought in Hong Kong. When used with water, it can be used as a liner ... but who has time? Maybe soon Ill allow myself more time for that!

So, my Precious, go out and get Blue!

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
