Wasserman-Schultz and Shea-Porter stricken by blue eyeshadow

I had hoped that by now, in 2010, we would all be on the same page about blue eyeshadow. It has a role to play, but that role is not "matching the blue clothes I'm wearing." Unfortunately, two members of Congress were on some other page during the health care debate.

First, it was Debbie Wasserman-Schultz:
My concern about this eyeshadow is not just the color, it's also the shimmery formulation. Because Rep. Wasserman-Schultz has fuller eyelids, she would benefit from a matte shadow instead, in a neutral color. Stila has a really nice matte shadow right now.

Then blue eyeshadow showed up again, even brighter, on Carol Shea-Porter:
It's tempting to say "just say no to blue eyeshadow" but of course that isn't true. You should know by now that I'm a never say never kind of girl when it comes to fashion and beauty. But there is such a thing as too much color, and this is it. Rep. Shea-Porter might do well by trying a soft eyeliner and no shadow at all, focusing instead on some more color on the lip. Her suit is so saturated, the rest of the look needs to be simple.
