Blame my fear of looking back to my "dated" photos and asking myself "why didn't my friends say anything about my hideous look before I left my house?!
But then I met Milani Cosmetics at the Latina & Latino Lifestyle Bloggers Collective, Los Angeles Conference this spring, and I threw that fear of color out the door.
|Milani "Shadow Eyez" is a soft-in-texture, deep-in-color eyeshadow pencil|
Not only have I worn color this summer (-gasp-), I have also been experimenting with all the beautiful colors that I was gifted with. I have learned that color doesn't necessarily look age inappropriate, even for a 40+ year old woman, when worn subtlety.
This is one of the looks I was brave enough to try with one of my favorite Milani products: Shadow Eyez.

together with Brown Deluxe in the corners of my eyes.

Although my dress is black with a white pattern, I added a little color with my jewelry to bring-in the eye shadow colors. It was very easy to blend-in both colors being that Shadow Eyez has a soft consistency.
My second look is a bit more casual and definitely more colorful. This look is more appropriate for a beach day - which is exactly where I was going to when I took this photo.
