blue note

I've always loved the look of blue mascara. I remember that when I was little I would steal Jilly's Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue and use it all the time when she didn't know...(confession: I still have that tube of mascara. It's probably at least ten years old...) It wasn't until I saw the photos of Cara Delevingne backstage at the Stella McCartney show that I realized just how wearable and striking the look is!

The second I saw this Chanel mascara, I knew I had to have it. I couldn't wait to try it out on my favorite canvas...Jilly! To even out Jilly's skin, I applied Giorgio Armani Maestro Foundation on her face. Using YSL Touche Éclat, I highlighted Jilly's cheekbones and brightened the skin under her eyes. I curled the lashes using my favorite Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler. When using colored mascara, it's important to prep the lashes with a white primer to make sure the color really pops! I prepped Jilly's lashes with my personal fave, Diorshow Maximizer Primer! Once the lashes are fully coated with primer, you then begin to apply the mascara! I went very heavy on the mascara to ensure that it would really pop!
