Something Blue - Eye Shadow

Words by Jennifer Stein

As a young girl, we grew up hearing "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrow Something Blue. " Well, that something blue will be the new trend in 2010 for brides. Bright, bold cobalt blue will be seen more at weddings in the flowers, bridesmaids’ dresses, the brides’ shoes and even bright bold eye shadows.

Blue eye shadow was very popular in the 70's & 80's and after a few years, women stayed away from wearing any shades of blues. But now every makeup line has come out with bold cobalt blues that any bride could easily find from matte, satins, shimmers, metallic’s, and even loose pearl eye shadows.

At a recent bridal photo shoot I decided to play with an L'OREAL HIP DUO blue eye shadow in Forgiven that can be used in a more smoky way. Remember when wearing a strong eye you should keep the lip color very light and I went with NYX Cosmetics Diamond Sparkle nude lip gloss in Beige Sparkle.

So brides your something blue doesn't have to be hidden anymore, it can be glamxuriously worn down the aisle.
