Ellis Eye-Land

Beautiful girls, start your engines. The Creamy Eyes liquid shadows from the cult makeup brand Ellis Faas are a must-have for spring. Ellis Faas has expanded the range to include a robin's egg blue eyeshadow (E118), perfect for all you Dick Page fans, as well as an eggplant purple (E115) that would look explosive with a hot pink lip. Other new colors are Navy Blue (E113), Bordeaux Red (E114),  Lilac (E116), Mint Green (E117), and Yellow Ochre (E119).

I typically write about pretty, go-anywhere beauty looks, but sometimes you have to shake your look up. Ellis Faas sent me a picture of a model wearing the new shadows:

What do you think? In my opinion, this beauty look is better for a high fashion magazine than a stroll down the block, but you can take a part of this idea and integrate the inspiration into your style. For example, wear a solid, opaque pastel color on your eyelids alone, instead of sweeping it up and around the eye. This will look very jolie and modern. Also, I love the model's red lip with a touch of mouth-watering orange. This reminds me of how the colors of a flower petal might change at the edges. It's just amazing to see, even if it's a bit impractical.

Beauty is an adventure. Blaze a trail!
