Vibrant lower lash | spring summer '13

as seen in the 'Splash' editorial in Cosmopolitan July '13

Jumping out of our comfort zone (and by 'our' I really mean 'my') is never as easy as it seems.. especially when it comes to style and the way we present our selves. Staying the same is never a bad thing but for me I find that as I'm changing as a person and maturing within myself, my style should also evolve with these changes. Other than exploring the fashionable side of the 'wild girl' I know is hiding somewhere within me, I have also enjoyed discovering beauty ways to channel that inner bold girl.

One of the very summer appropriate looks that I have found surprisingly refreshing has been the paired back look natural looking skin and a striking flash of electric aqua blue eyeliner on the lower lash line. This look reflect the very relaxed and lighter weight makeup most of us opt for the summer (because who really wants a cake of makeup when your just going to sweet it off) and even better, it also incorporates that vibrant summer fun too! 

This look has been adapted into the runway looks for both Stella McCartney and Moschino Cheap & Chic spring summer 2013 shows. Both shows featured very light makeup with the exception of the aquamarine blue liner. McCartney's show kept to their usual paired back makeup with only a hint of summer on the eyes. Slightly differently, Moschino Cheap & Chic runway beauty look had more of a strikingly bold effect with the heavier amount of liner.

Will anything similar ever appear on me? Maybe sooner than I expect or I might just leave it to the models. Nonetheless it is something unexpectedly compelling to ponder over.

Would you ever try something like this?
