For anyone who doesn’t watch Arrested Development that is going to be one strange title. To be fair it’s strange no matter what. Recently I’ve had a bit of a thing for blue mascara. It all started when I found pictures of that Stella McCartney’s show (granted I’m a few years late in my finding) where Pat McGrath custom mixed a beautiful blue/violet mascara that was painted heavily onto the models lashes. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it ever since. It’s such an eye-catching statement.
So with that inspiration in mind I grabbed a couple of items today that I think go pretty smashingly together… if you like blue that is. The first is MUA’s mascara in Electric Blue. And let me tell you it is electric blue. I was pretty impressed with just how much colouration actually appears on the lashes. But to up the ante even more I decided to pair it with the new Rimmel Shadow Stick by Kate in Electric Sapphire. A lot of electric happening here today. They make for a great duo though because, as much as the mascara is beautiful on its own, backing it with the blue liner intensifies the look about ten fold.
Unfortunately with an eye look like this things can go pretty 80’s pretty damn fast if you’re not careful. So I’m making an effort to simplify everything else. I’ve avoided any wild lipstick shades and I’m keeping my outfit to monochromatic basics. I think it helps keep things a little more chic.
