P O P O F C O L O R !

                                                                  Summer's Calling!

When I think of summer time I automatically think about color!
Color is always included in the top trends during summer; thru fashion, home decor & even nail varnishes.
So why can't color be placed in makeup too?
I know guys the word color is something that can seem a bit frighting! Even more frighting when it has to do with your makeup. 
But their are lots of ways you could incorporate color into your everyday look.
     This "pop of color" look is super easy to do! All you have to do is use a cream shadow (something sheer and light) all over the lid (and just your lid only) just to give your eyes a subtle sheen appearance to them. Instead of going for your everyday black liner for your top or even your bottom liner (inner rim as well) try to switch out for a navy color liner (or any color you please) this will give your eyes a sudden boost! If you are feeling a bit more daring you could even pair your eye look with a beautiful color on your lip (could be your transition from a day to night look). The great thing about this makeup is that it is really subtle and anyone can pull it off! Below will be a list of the products I used to create this look and  hopefully you guys try this out! Please tag me in photos if you recreated this look! I would love to see them! Good Luck:)
