Today I really want to chat about the winter blue makeup trend. I was flicking threw the Mac AW14 makeup bible and the blue trend is really key this year. Its definitely a trend that keeps coming back and its definitely one of my favourite colours.

Its a perfect way to work in colour without it being too hectic and just adds an amazing pop to your look. For me I love it because it gives a whole new dimension to my brown eyes. Now I have had 2 makeup products in my kit for quite some time but its the first time even really playing with them. I have the Mac fluidline in waveline a gorgeous blue to create the feline flick on shoots which by the way is a massive trend this season.

For my look above I took the gorgeous Estee lauder in Fire Sapphire and worked the shadow along the lash line and winged out. Its not too bold and just is a great way to work the trend. Makeup really is all about taking a trend and making it more wearable or to suit you.

      Sorry for the late response am overseas. Depends what you are looking for but if its makeup application then Nars and Rae Morris has amazing books you can order those online and for the basics Bobbi Brown has good one.
