If the blue eyeshadows and liners brightening up the spring 2015 runways at Honor, Elie Saab and Emanuel Ungaro weren’t enough to make you pull out your stash of cobalt eyeshadow, you now have a feel-good reason to do so, too.
As part of its “Wink If You’re With Us,” campaign, the cosmetic industry’s charitable organization Beauty Gives Back is asking women (and men!) to wear blue eyeshadow to call attention to the emotional and physical needs of women living with cancer. (You can post the photos online with the hashtag #WinkDay).
Worried your hands aren’t steady enough to sculpt a bold blue look straight from the runway? In Toronto, the Cancer Blues mobile make-up studio will be on hand (in the King West and Liberty Village areas on June 17; at the Eaton’s Centre and Queen West on June 28; and at the Blue Jays’ game on June 19) with professional makeup artists to design your bold blue look. The ELLE Canada beauty team will also be taking part and posting our looks.
Will you be taking part? Be sure to share your photos.

Today was meant to be some fancy parade (there were horses) in honor of the Queen’s birthday, but a certain little royal stole the show. And we’re pretty sure the Queen couldn’t even mind, because like all of human-kind, his adorableness melted her into a gooey mess.
Prince George had a grand old time today at the Trooping of the Colour—giggling as he watched mummy and daddy go by, pointing at all the airplanes as they flew by, and of course, acing his very first balcony appearance (that royal wave was on fleek, dude).
In a lovely little touch, George was actually wearing a family heirloom today—the very same cream and blue little suit his own dad wore for his first balcony appearance.
And no, Charlotte wasn’t there. Although some lady named Kate Middleton was there too, maybe?
