Navy Is The New Black

Posted Oct 16 2013 10:33am
NAVY BLUE eye makeup and nails are my latest shade obsession.  
Navy is replacing boring ole black in my beauty regime.

Too Faced Cosmetics Matte Eye Collection, $36 MAC Powerpoint eyeliner in "Prussian"$15 butter London polish in "Royal Navy" $15
Nails: With fall finally here, my nails just aren't feeling bubble gum pinks or pastels.  They long for a dark rich sophisticated nail.  This is going to be one of those nail colors I won't be able to break away from for awhile because it just looks SO good on my fingertips!  And the staying power of this polish (with my Seche Vite top coat of course) is absurdly good.  I've had it on for 5 days now (these pics are at the 5 day mark) with no chips yet.  Big for a mom of 3 and makeup artist whose hands are constantly immersed in water and makeup!
Eyes:  Whether you have brown, hazel, green, grey, or even blue eyes, you CAN wear navy and it will look amazing.  It's just enough color contrast to all types of eye colors that it flatters everyone. And it's a softer version of a black but more of a punch than a brown! Which makes it the perfect in between neutral.

Here's how I applied my eye makeup:
* I chose to mix the lightest 2 brown shades together from this Too Faced palette and applied just in my crease,
* then lined my entire eye in the MAC liner (even inner waterline below) winging it slightly at the ends,
* and finished it off by applying the darkest navy in the palette on top of the liner then smudging it until it blended into the browns.  Then of course 2 coats of black mascara on upper and lower lashes - I used Benefit's "They're Real."  Here's a duo set that includes a full tube + a tiny tube for your purse so your lashes always look luscious!

Additional cheeks & lips products used : Too Faced Glamour Gloss in "Pillow Talk,"  and Nars blush in "orgasm."   I also got a new hair cut yesterday - what do you think of my new shaggy layers and bangs? I am SO happy with it.  I showed my wonderful stylist (thanks Lyric at Republic Salon) this pic of beautiful Gemma Arterton on my Pinterest board and she nailed it!  Gotta love Pinterest.

What do you think about the idea of navy being the new black in your beauty routine?
