PAINT IT BLUE

A fresh take on lashes! Deviating from my beauty routine does not happen quite often, but I had to try the cobalt blue mascara thing Stella McCartney forecasted for f/w 2012. I feel like this look will be at its best with a strong, minimalistic dark fall look in a few months -imagine with olive green or burgundy!- to make it look less nineties.

  1. I can certainly see the baby blue mascara shade being the perfect comrade with all the Celine inspired or Proenza Schouler fall pieces. Needless to say that you are a true beauty that MUST experiment with make up colors once in a while!! :)

  2. i love it!

  3. You look gorgeous with these blue lashes…I have to try, even if I have darker eyes! :)

  4. This post would make a lot more sense if you told us where the mascara is from!

    1. @AnnLi: It’s a random, no brand one from the drugstore.

  5. I actually quite like this, I think I would love it in burgundy, although that is a lot safer choice.

  6. Is this the YSL Mascara? Volume effet faux cils?

    1. @Kostantina: No it is a random one from the drugstore.

  7. wow it looks really cool. I always wanted to try colored mascara but I was unsure exactly how to pair it with my usual makeup

  8. I love using blue mascara. Such a perfect accent to light makeup.

  9. Columbine made it just a few days ago!

    1. duh, all sabrina does is copy other bloggers.

  10. Looks good, especially with your blue eyes. But I don’t think it will look good with my green/brown eyes, maybe green for me then:P

  12. Very pretty!
    Ik zie het al helemaal voor me met de bovengenoemde combinatie.
    Zeker iets wat ik zelf ga proberen.

  13. i love it! I’ve used blue mascara before, but never thought of those combinations you mentioned. great ideas!

  14. Oh, but it looks just as beautiful with the clean look on the blog.
    Unfortunately I haven’t found a blue mascara that would actually look blue on my dark lashes :(

  23. Wauw! Verrassend mooi!

  24. very pretty, you are really a beauty!i was wondering though, why do you say its no brand mascara?there is always a brand name, or by no brand one means that its not a famous brand?i am just wondering!

  25. Leuk! Maar zou toch eerder een blauwe eyeliner doen ipv mascara, maar moet zeggen dat het je goed staat met je haarkleur!

  26. S U P E R C O O L

  30. I’m a red head and I’m looking for a good coloured mascara that fits my skin tone and hair color. I really have to try wearing bright blue and see what happens.

    Thanks for sharing :)

  31. Love this! Last summer I purchased aquamarine eyeliner and could not get enough, no matter how drag-queeny it may sound. This blue mascara is even more wonderful!

  37. You are very beautiful

  38. Normaal ben ik er absoluut geen fan van, maar jouw staat het wel !
    Super effen huid heb je !

  39. these freckles are piutifuuuul!

  40. really really adorable, colored lashes your back! yay

  41. Thanks for your reply, Sabrina! What a pity that it’s a no name mascara because the YSL is way too expensive and the ones from our (german) drugstores are too dark so that you can’t see any blue on the lashes.. Yours looks beautiful and the picture is awesome :)
    BEst wishes!

  42. you are so naturally beautiful!!! how do you keep your skin so flawless and natural looking???

  43. Love it! Which drugstore did you get it from? I’m Dutch so I’ll be checking it out!

    1. @Lea: Bij de Dirk drogist ;)

  44. I saw this trend on Columbine’s blog too. I did’nt like it on the magazines but on you or on her, that’s really fabulous!
    It makes beautiful eyes and a sexy babydoll effect !

  45. That look super cool! <3

  46. Wow! This is a very inspiring look, I even like your look better than the Stella Maccartney original. I picked one up myself yesterday, a mascara from Sephora – just to discover from the pictures of the Stella show that that’s the exact mascara they’re using :). I’ve got rather dark lashes so I needed a few layers to get that blue ‘glow’. Very subtle and quite beautiful. But to get the effect you have here, which also is stunning – I needed that particular one you have, I found it. Dirx indeed and for like 1,50 or something – haha, what a steal. Much better than spending 20 – 30 bucks (like the YSL one…) on something that isn’t really for every day. Just for fun :-) So thanks. Take care!

  47. Oh, and as a note to previous comment(s), about copying. Almost all bloggers copy in one way or the other. Some more, some less. Some do it very badly, some do it very well. I, as a reader, copy – a lot. I believe that’s the result of being inspired and applying it to yourself. The better you know yourself, the greater distance you have and can make the judgement of – does it fit me? What’s important in my opinion is that you, as a blogger/writer/stylist, inspire – in your own way. Only one can be the first. The rest are followers. The one person doesn’t make the trend. The followers do. We do. Thought of that?
    So thank you Sabrina for being one of my daily sources of inspiration!

  48. Wah , what a beautiful eyes you have . and its looking gorgeous with blue mascara . Thanks for sharing .
