FOTD: Blue Nails and Fishtails Featuring Fresh Burberry and Marc Jacobs Beauty

Above: Blue nails + fishtails…
Sometimes a beauty look is the culmination of a single product.  Case in point…this post.  Enchanted by the creamy lapis blue that is the new Burberry Nail Polish in Imperial Blue, I felt inspired to embrace an eclectic approach that yielded two fish tails, a clean canvas, a subtle cat eye and a breezy pink pout.  It’s times like these that no rhyme or reason makes the most sense!
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the products in action as well as the Bottom Line…

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this eclectic FOTD…I embrace a relatively restrained and natural look so often that sometimes it’s amusing to change it up ; ) Although I use many of these splendid products on a regular basis, the new standouts for me, personally, include the La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush, Marc Jacobs (P)Outliner in Honeybun and Burberry Wet & Dry Glow Eyeshadow in Shell. All three perform so well and are delightful updates to one’s spring makeup approach! 

Good things ahead,  including a recap of the Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills Project Beauty event that I hosted, fresh product procurements, a sunscreen feature and a full review of the  Burberry Spring/Summer releases.  Oh, and I am still working on comment and email responses ; ) 

Happy Daylight Savings Day + have a blessed Sunday…xx,

      Thanks, Lynn!!

      I found the Chanel Vitalumiere Powder on eBay from a Canadian seller (that ships to the US). It took awhile to track down but shipping was quick!

      Hi Cindy,

      Many thanks for the supportive words! With regards to your question, I suggest BoboDave for Asian products and eBay for anything you can't find on the BoboDave site. Harrod's and Selfridges online are fabulous for European products!

    Hello my gorgeous BP!
    How is life going? I just came back from a 2 weeks vacation and started to catch up with my beauty reads. I have much work to do! I cannot wait to watch your February favorites video.
    A mosquito bit my chin (my very first vacation day!) and now I have a huge purple mark on it. What will you recommend to erase it? My concealer gathers on it and looks gray and awful. I need this stain out of my face.
    Back to reading your posts now 🙂

      Thanks for the sweet comment! Welcome back from your vacation (2 weeks…how marvelous!)…happy to be a part of your catch up reading ; )

      So sorry to hear about your mosquito bite…I hope it has healed by now but in case it hasn't, I suggest neutralizing the dark spot with a bit of yellow or green corrector (Koh Gen Do and Physician's Formula both make great options) and then follow with concealer.

      XO, my friend!
