The hazy, bright blue skies of Spring | Clarins “Blue Sky” Colour Breeze EOTD

Monday, April 9, 2012

It’s always nice to have a product listing that’s less than fifteen five items long, and I can (blissfully) tell you that the shades in Blue Sky work cohesively enough together that this list is. Aside from the four shades of the quad (LE for this Spring’s Colour Breeze collection), this look features Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense in Intense Charcoal, Hard Candy Glamoflauge concealer in Light, and… actually, I’m not quite sure what’s going on with my brows. Smashbox Smoke, probably. Oh! And MAC Blanc Type (Matte2) under the brow and around (but not quite in) the inner corner, of course.

Pre-emptive apologies for the fact that I didn’t have time for a FOTD! I’ve been up to other things the past few weeks, but I wanted to do a Blue Sky makeup look to go with the review, nonetheless – I always find it useful to see what a palette can actually look like on the lids, so hopefully this’ll help make or break your Colour Breeze lemmings.

See you tomorrow for a review of the palette itself – swatches & thoughts when it goes up, I promise! For now, you’ll just have to make your judgements based on photos ;)

    I like how this looks on you! It's very put-together, though I'm pretty sure light blue can't be my thing :p Still, looking forward to the review!

    This is gorgeous! Can't wait to see the palette. Clarins has really been hitting it out of the park lately!

  11. Thanks, Dovey! :) I'm not quite sure how Clarins pulls it off, but it's not me – it's the palette. There's just something about it that's weirdly wearable!

  12. Thanks, lovely! : )

  13. Thank you!

  14. I'm a firm believer in the fact that all eyes can wear all colours. It's just an issue of mixing the right shades with the right liners! ;)

  15. Thanks, lovely! Working on the review now (but it might not be up until tomorrow. I just want to sleeep!)

  16. Thanks! :)

  17. Thanks, Naomi! : )

  18. Thanks, lovely :) Glad you liked the look!

  19. YAY for having a Clarins moment! :D :D

  20. Thanks, Danielle! Full review on the palette soon – I promised to have it up today, but I kind of just want to go to sleep >.<

    Ohh goodness….this is so pretty Rae!! So light and airy and perfect for Spring. I wish I could figure out a way to translate these kind of looks on my skin, but it just doesn't work the same. Must. Research.

  22. Thanks, Tonya :) I'm not sure about your lids, but Karen (Makeup and Beauty Blog) did a gorgeous look with this palette a few weeks back, if you're looking for Blue Sky inspiration on a medium skintone!
