Limeade Eyes

5:11 PM

The weather still hasn't been very sunny and I feel like I have to combat it. Because of this, I came up with another bright look. I wore this bright green and yellow eye to work and was pretty happy with the result considering the green was from the 78 palette again. Our office is business casual dress so I wore a black turtleneck shirt with a yellow short-sleeved jacket over it.

Like I said, I used the green from the 78 palette and the gold was from a L'Oréal HIP eyeshadow duo with gold and purple. I actually don't recommend buying the shadow duo because the purple in it is pretty much terrible and has no pigment. But as you can see, the gold is fantastic with color payoff.

For the bottom lash line I used NYX's pencil eyeliner in Moss and topped it with the green shadow. Other than that, I used my typical arsenal of Urban Decay Primer Potion, liquid eyeliner, and Max Factor Lash Perfection mascara (waterproof on top, non-waterproof on bottom). Cheeks are Apple blush from Everyday Minerals and lips were a dab of Clinique's lipstick in Raspberry Glace with gloss over the top.

I also wore my fantastic Mudflap-girl inspired Tinkerbell necklace which I LOVE. It's huge, gold, and tacky, but I think a little tackiness is super fun and can be totally appropriate.

As always, if you try out the look let me know! Also, on a wholly unrelated note, I got Rock Band 2 and I'm loooovin' it! Ben and I like to rock out with him on guitar and me on mic. Drums and bass are fun times too, but singing is my favorite. Anyone else try this out yet?

Anyway, I'm off to watch my just-received wedding vid. Ahhhhh, so excited!!

  2. I love ur bright eye look ^^
    speaking of the coastal scent palettes i have them in 88 colors both the shommer and matt ones. I must say that the colours are lovely and vibrant but they're a bit too powdery sometimes. Never the less i have so much fun playing with the colours ^^
