Look of the Day: Smokey Blue Midnight Eyes!

I guess most would say that this is a night-time look, but I wore it in broad daylight to The Roots Picnic event I attended in Philadelphia last weekend (which sucked by the way).   I don't tend to follow those rules that dictate what colors or shades to wear based on the time of day or season; if my mind is set on wearing bright pink eyeshadow or shimmering bronzer on any given day, I go for it!  As long as I feel comfortable and it complements my outfit...can't tell me nothing! :p ....But I conventional means, this look is great to try on a night out with your friends!

  2. Very pretty and natural looking . I have a question about the MUD DW5 that you used for contouring; is it darker or lighter than your skin tone and do you use Mud's foundation all over and if you do, what shade?
