Easy Everyday Contouring and Highlighting

Contouring and highlighting has been a huge makeup trend in recent years, and with good reason - you can use concealer to achieve more defined cheek bones, to make your lips look bigger, and my personal favorite - to hide a double chin. And despite all of the intricate tutorials out there, I want to show you that it can actually be quick an easy!

Mediterranean Blue

Indigo Ceramic Vases

How to Decorate with Mediterranean Blue
  1. Mediterranean blue looks great with crisp with. If you have white apartment walls, dress them up with blue curtains or a blue painting.
  2. Incorporate Meditteranean blue in your patio decor with blue outdoor pillows.
  3. In addition to white, Mediterranean Blue looks great with grey or silver. If you add blue as the main color scheme in a room, try to add in a lot of polished silver accessories.
  4. It's a vibrant shade to add in coastal decor. Swap out dark navy nautical decor for accessories in Mediterranean blue. Try looking for glass bottles in this cobalt shade of blue.
  5. If you want to mix Monaco blue with browns, use light brown natural elements like nautical ropes, linen, or jute. 
  6. This color can look great in a traditional setting with floral prints, but it really looks great with global prints as well. Think Ikat and Morroccan Lattice
