The Red Lips Challenge went so well, and it has made consider whether we should institute monthly challenges–let me know what you think in the comments.  For June, I want to see you rock BLUE!  In the challenge image, I’ve included six different blue looks I’ve done, and you can see that they vary from all-blue to subtle blue to ultra dark, smoky black and blue.  I’d like to think challenges are meant to encourage you to try things you haven’t otherwise done before.

The Challenge | Rock some blue!  Figure out where you are in your comfort zone, and then take it to the next level…

  • “Blues are pretty to look at, but I’d never wear them!” | Your Challenge:  Wear it in the comfort of your own home.
  • “I’ve tried it, but I couldn’t wear it out” | Your Challenge: Wear it to the grocery store! Round up some pals (or get the man in your life) to take you somewhere hip and trendy.
  • “There is this one blue…” | Your Challenge: Incorporate your favorite blue with other blues (or blue-like colors) that you haven’t yet tried.
  • “I rock blues all the time!” | Your Challenge: Encourage others that wearing blue is fun and sexy, not at all Mimi-esque!

Are you ready for Temptalia’s Blue Eyes Challenge?

    Doh! I had on blue yesterday. And I would have taken a picture of it, but my horrible camera has decided not to work.

  9. Tina

    I’d love to try this but I don’t have any blues that are pigmented enough.

    WOOHOO I’m definitely going to do this one. I meant to do the red lips one but didn’t get around to it. I have only worn blue eyes downtown a couple times… only two that I remember!!! My eyes are already blue so certain colours make my eyes just look too freaky…. like fake, freaky.. lol So I will show that it CAN be done on blue eyes :)

    i just took my red lips challenge photo and saw another challenge! i only have one question: does teal count as blue (or green)?

  12. Ashlee

    SO can we enter older pics and one that was inspoed from you?

  13. Amanda

    I always try to do blue eyes but they never, ever come out right. I am good with pinks but fail miserably with blues. No idea why. :(

    ::Wicked grin::

    I already have a bunch of variations on this. Expect over the top from me, since the brightest are from Sharks games, which means blue ponytail is included is some.

    Funny that you put out this challenge today…. I just so happen to be sporting my NN look with all blues. 😉

  16. Julia

    Blues are my favorite! I don’t think them to be over the top at all if blended right. Parrot, Moon’s reflection and freshwater are my favorites and look good together. I want more darker blues though. I LOVE Contrast.

  19. claudine

    ohhh i love blues so much

  20. Myra
