In our humble opinion, there's no better way to get over The Hump (that would be you, dear Wednesday) than by talking incessantly about beauty. So, from now until forever, we're hereby declaring Guest Beauty Blogger Wednesdays. Each hump day, we'll be tapping a different Total Beauty blogger to sound-off on StyleList. Today, we've got Makeup For Life -- a beauty-addict must-stop that specializes in product reviews, celebrity makeup breakdown, runway trends and makeup tutorials.
Spring Makeup Alert: Turquoise Eyeshadow
Spring is the best time to whip out those bright colors that were kept hidden in the drawers through the long cold winter, and turquoise is my all-time favorite.
While turquoise looks best against darker skin tones and makes brown eyes pop, it will look good on lighter eyes and paler skin as well. The key is to pick one that has a metallic or satin finish -- matte turquoise can look dated.
The combinations you can create with turquoise is endless. At the Gucci S/S 2009 show, lead makeup artist Pat McGrath did a bold look with a rich metallic turquoise eyeshadow on the lid blended past the crease, a light green as a highlighter, lots of eyeliner and false lashes. She also highlighted the models' cheekbones and cupid's bow and added a soft pink lip gloss on the lips. Check out my take on the look here.
