6 Must-Have MAC Blue Eyeshadows
Electric Eel eyeshadow is a ridiculously bright pop of blue. It’s a satin eyeshadow, but it’s smooth, though it almost feels more matte since there’s no real shimmer to it. It is also ridiculously pigmented! If you find the texture too difficult, try Clarity eyeshadow instead, which is similar, but has a Matte2 texture, which is smoother, butterier.
Freshwater eyeshadow is the perfect medium blue. It’s not light, but it isn’t too dark. It has a veluxe pearl finish, which means it has shimmer in its texture, but it looks gorgeous because it is so richly pigmented. This is one of my favorite eyeshadows!
Prussian eyeshadow is a dusty dark blue, and it has a matte finish (it is a Matte2 by definition). It’s smooth without being chalky, and it can add so much dimension to your look (as mattes often do).

Brush Storage Ideas
Taking a hint from Sephora’s bead-filled brush holders, I present the way I modified it to better fit my personal style/taste. I saw these glassy, “black pearl”-like marbles at Michael’s (the craftstore), and they just were a perfect suit for me. I do wish they were a wee bit smaller, because it would make it easier to keep all of the brushes standing upright at all times, but it’s good enough for me. Each jar required three bags of marbles, each bag costing around $3.
The circular glass jars were a nice find, too, because it’s taken me a year to find them (really!)–everything else wouldn’t be as clean/simple, or the jar would be too tall/short… just something would not be perfect. I believe the glass jars were about $3, and they fit my brushes comfortably. I’d say if you used vase filler beads or smaller beads, you could definitely fit more than the amount I have.
Overall, each brush holder’s final cost was about $22 including tax. You can see more pictures! Continue reading →

What type of looks do you think you can’t pull off? Why?
It’s hard for me to pull off really cool-toned looks, just because it’s a large contrast compared to my normal, warm-toned complexion!
Thanks to Arika for today’s question!
