This past weekend I felt inspired by the makeup at Versace last spring and decided to experiment with a little color. I started off with my usual soft smoky brown eye and smudged some electric blue eyeliner only halfway across my eyelids. Then, I used a wet Q-tip and dabbed some of Kevyn Aucoin’s ‘Celestial Powder’ onto the inner corners of my eyes to brighten them up. I’d say my version is less glamorous and more everyday than Versace’s beauty look. Messy makeup is more me… I never like to look like I’m going to prom.
