My "Why-Haven't-I-Tried-BLUE-EYESHADOW-Sooner" FOTD!

Hey guys!
Here is a look I did yesterday. I didn't know what to do makeup wise so I asked my boyfriend what colours I should try today and he said "Grey/Blue". I thought, "BLUE EYESHADOW...seriously?!". I never wear blue eyeshadow because I always think of this:
Mimi Bobeck from Drew Carey Show


So for years I've steered clear of Blue Eyeshadow and never bothered to give it a chance and OMG...I feel in love! I bought MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow in "Blue Flame" with the Style Black collection and haven't bothered to use it because it scared me. I'm so glad I bought it now because it made my green eyes stand out more than usual! I now added Deep Truth, Freshwater and Nehru to my MAC Wish List! I will be making a big haul after Christmas (I'm not letting myself buy any more cosmetics until then...yeah right!)

Also, I guess this is my second "Style Black FOTD". I wanted to do FOTDs with all the mineralize eyeshadows I purchased, but I guess I'll get around to it eventually. Here is my look with Blue Flame! I took a lot of pictures because it was such a beautiful day out yesterday that you could actually see the sun and clear blue sky which means great lighting for photos!

  12. I passed up on Blue Flame, then I saw PixiWoos tutorial and started lemming for it... I managed to talk myself out of it since it's sold out everywhere and going for a pretty penny on eBay. After seeing this... I feel like I need it again... gorgeous!
