I keep forgetting the B in a B&A.

My little sister asked me to do her makeup over the weekend and I jumped at the chance--I need all the practice I can get if I want to do this in the long-run. I drove over, not knowing exactly what kind of look she wanted, with almost all of my makeup in tow. Side note: At least I know that I'm building some arm muscles with the weight of everything. Ha.

I walk upstairs to find Abigail curling her hair and she was wearing a white tank with these cute tan and teal high waisted, flowy shorts. I thought she was going out-out but said she was just going to play cards at a friend's house.

As I finished braiding her bangs back, she said she wanted to try a makeup look with some sort of color under her eyes. Easy peasy! Now I just need to figure out what color to pick.

We decided on an aqua blue color with neutrals on her lid. I suggested an orangey/red lip to tie together the look but she wasn't too sure. I put it on her anyway--Just trust me!!--and it paired beautifully with the blue under her eyes.

Also, be aware that the only lighting came from the bulbs over the sink. It was 9pm so that was our only option.

Covergirl Clean Liquid Foundation in Medium Light
Covergirl Liquid Concealer in Light
Covergirl Loose Powder in Medium
Sephora Bronzer in Los Cabos
NARS blush in Orgasm
Hard Candy (just the highlight color) So Baked Sculpting Trio in 3x a Lady

Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palette in Naked (I didn't have any brow powder light enough for her blonde hair so this light brown worked perfectly)
MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC20 (to define under the brows)

Primer-MAC paint pot in Painterly
Lid-Makeup Geek eyeshadow in Moondust
Crease-Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palette in Buck
Outer corner-Maybelline eyeshadow in Black Onyx
Some random Walmart 40-piece makeup palette in the aqua blue color
Rimmel liquid eyeliner and retractable pencil in Black
Covergirl cat eyes mascara in Glam Black

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Audacious

So what do you think? Have I got you wanting to try a pop of blue under your eyes?? Any color will work so swipe on some purple, pink, or--oooooh!--a fun minty green! Better yet, autumn is just around the corner so how about swiping on a plum or cranberry color! Next time I'll be sure to snap a before-picture in this Before & After. My bad.
