One of my goals for the new year is to incorporate more color in my life. I’ve always loved bright colors, but I found myself sticking to more neutral tones ever since moving to NYC. I buy more black clothing, perhaps because that’s the uniform here, and I found myself sticking to more neutral and nude shades with makeup. So, in order to challenge myself, I decided to start a new monochromatic color series on the blog, where I will pick one color every week and complete a whole look using only different shades of that color.

To start out the series, I chose blue because:
  1.  It’s my favorite color.
  2. I never wear blue on  my eyes.
  3. I feel like most people, especially dark skinned women, are afraid to experiment with this color because it can go wrong so easily and look very old school.

I created this whole eye look using different shades of blue. Hopefully it can inspire you to incorporate more color in your makeup.
