With the launch of The Great Gatsby movie, I wanted to try my very own 20s makeup look. I chose a smoldering smoky eye in shades of purple, black and gold and paired it with a signature ’20s bow lip in red.
What better way to showcase the gorgeous colors of the NARS Summer 2013 Collection than a FOTD? In this look, I paired a bright eye with lots of lashes (clumpy lashes are so in this season!), muted cheeks and pink lips. What do you think?
The Make Up For Ever Make Up Bag Remix Tour Bus finally made a stop in the Chicago area today! I had been stoked about the event for MONTHS and am so glad I had so much fun! I was given a 30-minute makeover session by Ohio-based Education and Artistry Executive Kelly Bretcher, who not only had 10 years of experience in the makeup industry but was also super nice and so pretty! Keep reading to see my makeover and a few exclusive tips from Kelly!

Be it the fluid aqua liner at Anthony Vaccarello or a royal blue at Just Cavalli, ditching your regular black and brown eyeliner for blue is the way to go this Spring.
Earlier this week, I showed you how to rock blue, one of the hottest colors this Spring, with a dot of eyeliner under the eye. But if you like a bit more drama, nothing beats a dramatic smoky eye like the Arabian-inspired look at Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer 2013 show.
First seen at Anna Sui A/W 2012 and now again at Meadham Kirchhoff S/S 2013, adding just a dot (or a blob) of blue underneath the eye is such a cool yet simple way to make your peepers pop. Check out my take on the look and tips on how to nail it after the jump!

Tips On Rocking The Look
When choosing a blue to use, the brighter the better. After all, this look is all about fun. A few good choices are turquoise (as seen on my look above), electric blue, cobalt blue, royal blue and cornflower blue. And remember, with the eyes stealing the show, always keep the skin dewy and fresh and finish with just a tad of color on the cheeks and lips.
