When it comes to beauty, we all have (at least) one big fear. Sometimes, though, all we need to take the plunge into uncharted beauty territory is some solid guidance (and, okay, maybe a little hand-holding). Today, with the help of makeup artist James Vincent, our very own Vanessa is confronting her deepest beauty fear: that bright, loud eyeshadow will make her look like Mimi from The Drew Carey Show.
See what happens as he guides her through the secrets of blue eye makeup, one bold layer at a time. Will she end up looking like Mimi? Will her remarkably adorable eyelid freckle still show? And, once it's done, can she learn to bravely flaunt her bright blue lids? Watch now to find out.
