Break out the Blue!

I’m having a blue suede moment, as evident on instagram. I scored these fab Maddens ($44) online and then stumbled upon a clutch ($18) & belt ($6) at H&M in the same shade. What are the chances? Apparently it’s blue suede that’s having a moment, just in time for spring. It’s a surprisingly wearable shade so just have fun with it! Dani

Navy liner brings out the whites of your eyes. It’s the new neutral! My favorite: Bare Escentuals in Midnight Sky ($13). If you go for a bold eye, keep lips nude (NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Madere, $25) and cheeks bronzed or peachy (NARS Blush in Orgasm, $28). My all-time favorite mascara, Buxom Lash, also comes in an electrifying shade of blue, Buxom Lash in Blue Noir ($19). The color is matte, not metallic, so the difference is subtle—just enough to make your eye-color pop and lead people to wonder what’s different. Finally, you can skip the accessories altogether with a coat of Essie Nail Polish in Mesmerize ($8).
