Rescue your look from the “Winter Blues”…..try a bold cobalt blue eye shadow with a nude lip or a nude eye and magenta lip.  Bold, Beautiful and Cool, just like the weather. 
 Cobalt Blue Eye Tip: 
 - Use a shadow base or black eyeliner all over the eye to make the color more bold. 
 - Great blue colors to try are: Plumage by MAC, Celestial Blue by Ben Nye, HIP Studio Secrets by Loreal in Showy 
 - Skip the actual liner on top to “line the eye” as you normally would, let the statement of the shadow be the statement. 
 - Try using the shadow underneath the eye instead of a dark liner to keep the look continuous on the top and bottom.  Use a white liner to rim the under eye lid to brighten the eye. 
 Tips for Magenta Lips: 
 - Keep the eye very basic. Light shadow, no liner and mascara 
 - Prime the lip area with a concealer and pat with translucent powder. 
 - Line the lips with a slightly darker liner and fill in the whole lip. Again, set with powder.  This will keep it on longer. 
 - Apply lip color and blot…touch the center of the bottom lip with a shiny gloss to make the lip appear fuller. 
 - Tap with the index finger the lip color and lightly pat a little color on apples of cheeks to bring the color slightly into the face. 
 - Great colors to try: PK359 by Shu Uemura, Rouge Volupte formula in Provocative Pink by YSL, or Revlon #745 in Super Lustrous formula
