FOTD: Ahoy, Sailor!

It wasn't a good Grace face day, so we'll have to deal with up-close shots for dayssss. In any case, I decided to upload this little face of the day to Instagram because I was feelin' like navy blue winged liner and a matte red lip. Navy liner is something SO fun for summer, definitely a nice change from a black and can be a modern take on a very classic pin-up type look. I think the navy really compliments the red lip but would also work with a matte hot pink lip and cheek, too. I paired this with minimal product on the cheeks, just a light blush and some soft contouring but if you wanted, you could add some bronzer and a gold eyeliner/shadow on the lower lash-line to further compliment the navy liner. I used a Maybelline Colour Tattoo as a base/gel liner esque product and then set it with a shadow to ensure it stayed put and was more opaque. You could do this exact same look with any navy blue liner or even another colour in the Colour Tattoo range (a bright purple would look great too if you wanted to skip on the red lip!). This look really reminds me of summer and nautical themes, I hope you enjoy :)
