Sunday Blues

I just wanted to throw together a quick inspiration post on this gloomy Sunday afternoon. Incorporating blue into your skincare and make up routine may seem daunting, but here are some blue hued products worth checking out!

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil $55.00-$105.00

This has been hailed as cure all face oil, and I have been dying to try it out. They now sell it in a less expensive travel size so check that out! Every skin type from oily to Sahara dry can benefit from this luxe sleeping oil from Sunday Riley.

Herbivore Botanicals Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask $48.00

I love any mask that claims to ‘resurface’ my skin, but use sparingly! I have sensitive skin so I used to be afraid of any chemical exfoliation, but I have learned that less is more. This bright blue item has both AHA and BHA, making it perfect for many different skin needs.

Kiehl’s Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion $18.00-$27.00

I prefer to buy my toning lotion from Kiehl’s, every different line is great for sensitive skin! I know the word astringent can be harsh, but trust me when I say this toner will leave you feeling clean, not stripped.

Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Gel Yeux Intense Smoothing Hydration Eye Gel $68.00

Feel like splurging? Try anything from the Hydra Chanel line, chock full of hydrating and cooling ingredients.

Dior Diorshow Lash-Extension Effect Volume Mascara in Blue $28.50

While blue skincare is simple, blue make up is constantly straddling the line between out there and tacky, so proceed with caution, but remember, make up washes off, so wear whatever makes you feel best! A deep navy mascara is a great way to introduce a subtle blue into your eye look without fully committing to a blue shadow or liner.

Tom Ford Starry Night Eyeshadow Quad $82.00

When it comes to blue eyeshadow, you really need to find what is perfect for your undertone and your age! I know a lot of older women can be afraid to add blue shadow to their collection out of fear of looking gawdy or ridiculous, so I always suggest a deep navy or indigo. This quad is perfect because it gives you four options, a silver based sky blue, a shimmery lavender tinged blue, a smokey grey blue and a true navy.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Chaos $20.00

This eyeliner is not for the faint of heart, but for those who really want a crazy pop of cobalt. Swipe some of this on your lower lash line to bring out grey and green eyes!

MAC Lipglass in Norwegian Sky $17.00

I had to include this fun sky blue lip gloss from MAC because I have always wanted the guts to pull this off. While it doesn’t apply extremely opaque, it does give a shimmering blue tint to the lips. The upside to this bizarre color? It really whitens the teeth!

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Unspoken $27.00

While I have never found my perfect one, I am a huge fan of a deep, dark navy matte lip. These pencils from NARS are perfect for an easy on the go lip, and this new color is exactly what I think of when I consider adding blue to my look.

Let me know your favorite blue products!

Glowingly yours,

Jess
