Cargo Eye Shadow ~ Fiji ~ The perfect transitional color!

A few weeks ago, I decided to go to Ulta (click for link), to talk to a consultant who knows more about makeup than I do, which is next to nothing. I don't wear a lot of makeup, but I feel that I need a bit, just to give my face a more polished look. Actually, I wear much less makeup now than I did forty years ago, when I didn't really need it at all.

The thing about makeup is, if you take good care of your skin, and you do all the things you're supposed to do to stay healthy...exercise, drink lots of water, eat right, get plenty of rest, don't need to wear a lot to look good. However I enjoy makeup, not necessarily to cover anything or to hide anything. I just think it's creative and fun...especially eye-makeup. After all, I was an art major.:)

I've always worn brown eye shadow. My hair is light to medium brown with golden highlights, and my eyes  are green, so brown was just the best color for my face. But now that my hair has a significant amount of gray, mostly around my face, the brown eye shadow doesn't seen right anymore. But I tried gray eye shadows, and they don't look good with my eyes and the brown part of my hair.

Hence, the consultation with an expert. She suggested Cargo's Fiji, a taupe powdered shadow than leans toward plum. Eureka! Looks good with the gray hair...looks good with the brown hair...looks good with the green eyes. The color is perfect for me, and the texture is soft and easy to apply. Problem solved!
