Colors... Suggestions??

So, despite having used brighter shades extensively in the past, I honestly don't think it suits me much.  I lean towards neutrals and earthy tones.  For some reason I simply cannot tolerate purples on me anymore.  Being fair in skintone, blonde hair and blue eyes, when I go for something green or even blue, I get comments like "man you are wearing a lot of makeup!" and not in a positive way.

This is not the best pose lol, I'm squinting because of the sun, but its the best way I could get a picture of my hair colour.  Anyone have tips on how to incorporate some color (or if I even should) ??  I was thinking maybe a light green or blue on the center lid, then darker neutral in the crease or something.

On another note, I decided to get almond scrub as a facial cleanser (after trying the apricot one and not liking it), and I really love it.  I think using that and continuing with the BB Cream, avoiding foundation, I think my skin looks fairly good and I haven't had any adverse affects so that's always a good thing.


  1. I think you should go for Naked Palette 1 or 2, those warm earth shades would suit you so much =)

  2. It sounds boring, but browns really compliment your eyes and bring our more of the blue! If I was going to put a color on you, I'd probably go with something wine colored. Makeup Forever makes a super pretty liquid liner (#11, Diamond Burgundy) that looks amazing on blue's dark and defining but not overpowering and the color is so gorgeous!
