You Can Never Have Enough Blue Eye Shadow

I am allergic to the red and violet dyes used in eye shadows. I *always* tell make-up artists this, but, somehow, managed to bring home a bunch of eye shadows with both dyes last fall. Long story short, I haven't worn eye shadow since October. And I *love* eye shadow.

I was feeling beyond bored with my thick eyeliner and heavy mascara look, so I decided to give it another go with some new, bright colors that I've never had before. I picked up the following colors by Bobbi Brown.

So far, so good! It's been a week and save for a few bumps that went away overnight, I haven't had any problems. I'm so excited to brighten up my tired eyes going into fall.

I love navy eye shadow. I picked up a bunch at Target the other week. ELF was having a good sale. I'm having fun playing with all the colors.

I always thought I was allergic to purple eyeshadow, but it really turns out that I'm allergic to Revlon makeup (they had the best shades of purple). Maybelline and Clinique haven't steered me wrong. But I guess if you know it's the dye and not the base it doesn't really matter. Eye allergies are the worst, I've only found 1 mascara that doesn't make my eyes itch!
