Hello everyone. Hope you are all doing good. I am clearly enjoying the last few warm days, before fall grips us in its cooler temps. And if your social calendar is booked with back to back parties over the weekends, I have you covered. At least I have your make up ideas covered.

I know blue eye shadow can be a tricky topic to discuss upon. Its often frowned upon by many for being too dated or specifically being too 1980s. But if done properly, it can be the right touch of glam. Being light handed when you are handling bright eye shadows , is a great tip. You can start off with a light wash of color and intensify as you go along, or as you feel comfortable about.

I had recorded this video a few months back, but it got delayed at the editing table. While I had recorded it originally as a Summer Glam evening Make up Tutorial, when I was editing it, I realized that it can work perfectly well, for Fall evenings too. With Fashion Week coming up and all the other glamorous parties around town, now is the time to go beyond the quintessential nudes on your eye lids.

I have played up with a few shades of Blue Eyeshadow from MAC and diffused it all with a Whitish eyeshadow from MAC called Crystal Avalanche. Sorry that I mentioned it as MAC Vanilla in the voice over. I had used a bright pink lip, because I personally have a thing for bright lips, but feel free to pair your favorite nude lips. A bright eye make up, can be the perfect Pop to a monochrome outfit. So go ahead and give it a try. And if you did like it, don't forget to give me THUMBS Up on the video in Youtube.
