Lady in blue, gorgeous and slinky in such a bold number. Go for icy eyes or a smoldering smoky eye with blue undertones with this Laura Mercier quad of shadows. Try light blue all over lid with the black in th outer crease and along lower lash line. Use Dior blush in Passion Fruit for cool pink cheeks, slightly flushed, but just the barest hint of color. Top with Moon Fleet lip gloss by NARS, a cool gold, for subtle lips.

1. Donna Ricco Stretch Satin Sheath Dress @ Nordstrom for $158.00icon
2. Dior Blush in Passion Fruit @ Sephora for $34.00
3. Laura Mercier Eye Colour Quad in Blue Sky @ Nordstrom for $38.00icon
4. NARS Lip Gloss/Lip Stain Gloss in Moon Fleet / Indian Red @ Sephora for $28.00

On the other hand, leave out the blue shadows and go for volumizing black mascara and kohl liner, and use Indian Red by NARS for a gorgeous deep red lip. If you want to swipe a wash of color on the lid, try something neutral and matte, and keep the crease light and also matte. Matte colors will give you depth without attracting too much attention. This dress is such a stunner on its own that makeup can be minimal.

    yeah. the dress looks very nice. i like the cut (which will make any body type slim) and its simplicity.
