It began with the photo above, from the August “Denim Issue” of Nylon. The rest of the magazine was a bore, but this blue eye shadow blew (or, blue…if you are a fan of puns) my mind!
While Janelle and I were at Target buying an emergency backup of Boggle (mine remains locked in my car, awaiting the arrival of my spare car key from my mother), I bought a fairly comparable color (L’Oreal HIP). I carefully applied it this morning…it looked pretty amazing, but I chickened out, grabbed the cold cream, and started over with my usual “Satin Tutu” eyeshadow.
They took the blue from the skies,
And the pretty girls’ eyes,
And a touch of Old Glory too;
And gave it to the men who proudly wear the U. S. Air Force Blue!
In the English language, blue may refer to the feeling of sadness. “He was feeling blue”. This is because blue was related to rain, or storms, and in Greek mythology, the god Zeus would make rain when he was sad (crying), and a storm when he was angry.
