Dolled Up: Tropical Eyes

Dolled Up: Tropical Eyes Spring colors are making their way onto shelves and racks and I’m in love with the use of teal in Spring makeup. Teal is the perfect tropical color and it looks good on just about everyone, as long as you’ve got the guts to wear something a little less daring than brown, navy, or black eyeliner. Funnily enough, when I was in high school my school’s colors were teal and orange, a combination I couldn’t have hated more in those days, but have come to adore in the Estée Lauder shadow stick duo, the stick is called teal/pink, but the pink borders more on the side of orange.

Getting the Look:

Dolled Up: Tropical Eyes

    ■ Line your eyelid with a thick sweep of the teal end of the Limited Edition Estée Lauder Shadow Stick Duo in Teal/Pink, avoid putting any color into the inner corner of your eye.
    ■ Line the inner corner of your eye (both top and bottom) with the pink end of the shadow stick duo, overlapping a little bit of the pink on top of the teal.
    ■ Apply the pink end of the shadow stick duo to the crease of your eyelid from the inside to the outside of your eyelid.
    ■ Shade in underneath the crease with the orange shadow from the CoverGirl Tropical Fusion quad, and use the yellow as the highlight under your lid.
    ■ Apply Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme mascara for feathery full lashes, or use the mascara of your choice.
    ■ Curl your lashes for a glammed up finish.

      Coveted Deeply

      Five picks of things I’m coveting deeply.


      Coveted Deeply[1] Turquoise looks good on just about everyone, and with Spring on the horizon this piece by Siman Tu is so exquisite you’ll find yourself making up excuses to wear it over and over again. This piece is beyond covet worthy, it’s divine outfit inspiration whether you decide to wear it more appropriately with a beautiful evening gown, or with a boyfriend tee and wide legged jeans.

      [2] Estée Lauder Wild Storm is the kind of dark pearl gray that’s grungy yet elegant. I’m in love with this nail polish, it’s unexpected, but the formula has a color that is potent, dark and utterly delicious.

      [3] Form fitting and color rich the fuchsia Roland Mouret jersey dress wraps curves like a dream. Simply belted, or worn under a navy blazer, this dress is a wardrobe statement piece that works from the office to cocktail hour with a few accessory alterations.

      [4] The lustrous pearl elements in the aqua cream Make Up For Ever cream eyeshadow will prove a force to be reckoned with. It’s bold and prismatic, so whether it’s being used as an eyeliner or full on eyeshadow, your eyes won’t look anything short of drop dead gorgeous.

      [5] Aptly named so – the Covet handbag from Rebecca Minkoff is a piece I truly covet deeply, it has a mix of dove grey and soft nude that brings the Fall’s grey loving palette straight into Spring’s love affair with nudes.
