Beautiful Beginnings with China Glaze

Beautiful Beginnings with China Glaze

What was the first China Glaze product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first China Glaze product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  I’ve been in love with China Glaze since I first tried it! My initial shades were Tree Hugger and Secret Peri-winkle. Then it was the Rodeo Diva collection where I loved Wagon Trail. Cheap, good formula, and huge color range–what’s not to love?

5 Uplifting Light Blue Eyeshadows

5 Uplifting Light Blue Eyeshadows

I love a good sky blue/pastel blue eyeshadow, especially for spring, but it also can work really with more summery colors as a way to tone down some of the vibrancy of those brighter hues.

  1. Buxom Husky — light ethereal blue with a soft frosted finish
  2. MAC Styledriven — light-medium blue with a soft frosted finish
  3. Make Up For Ever #150 — pale sky blue
  4. Urban Decay Clash — vibrant sky blue with sparkle
  5. Bare Escentuals Illusion — pale pastel blue

What’s your favorite light blue eyeshadow?
