Makeup Monday: Posen Inspired




A couple weeks ago, I held a vote on facebook, asking readers to weigh in on their favorite runway looks. I recreated the winner for a special [future] Makeup Monday, but liked all of the looks so much that I decided to recreate all of them. Last Makeup Monday, I paid homage to the bright lips all over the Spring runways. This week, I decided to do my own take on the beautiful aqua, blue and gold eyes at Zac Posen. Continue reading after the jump for step by step instructions.

What I used - Eyes:
Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream #13
Flipside (turquoise) and Baked (golden) eyeshadows and 24/7 eyeliner - from the Urban Decay Fun Palette
MAC Freshwater and Deep Truth eyeshadows
Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Lash mascara

Lips:
Julie Hewett Biba

Face:
MUFE microperfecting neutral primer and HD foundation 110
ELF blush in Mellow Mauve

  13. I love this one! For whatever reason I always unfairly associate blue eyeshadow with old ladies, but it looks so young and hip here. I'd love to do this look for a big night out!
