Peaches & Green FOTD

So, this look may or may not have been from St. Patrick's Day. We are just going to pretend that I regularly match all-green on any ordinary day because that's what reasonable, ordinary people do and obviously I am a reasonable and ordinary person. Ahem.

Green is one of those colors that I think everyone can pull off. It's especially nice on those with green, hazel, or brown eyes and it's much easier to have it not clash with Asian skin than, say, blue or other cooler colors. If you think about nature and how nice trees look then it's not so hard to imagine the same colors working well for makeup, right? ^.^

One of my favorite ways to wear bright colors is using it as a "pop" of color on a more neutral lid which is exactly what I've done here.


Here's a close-up of my eye. I did a basic neutral lid, MAC Fluidline for the eyeliner, Sugar criss-cross lashes, and a nice dose of Urban Decay's green 24/7 liners with Graffiti on the waterline and Covet smudged underneath. I skipped any black liner on the bottom lashes and instead had a nice long coat of mascara to open up the eyes.


For base makeup, I used Lioele's Beyond the Solution BB Cream which has great coverage but I have since stopped using since Skin 79's Super Functions (hot pink) BB matches my skintone better. One effect that I do find interesting looking at the photos where I used the Lioele is that it gives that really flat, almost mannequin-like perfect look to the face. Maybe it's just how it reacts to my skin but this is definitely something to keep in mind for those interested in purchasing. This is high on the coverage-scale and low on the glowy-scale. I'll have to do a review and comparison soon on the BB's that I currently own which are only Lioele Beyond the Solution, Skin79 hot pink, and Skin79 DermaRX.


I'm also using Lioele's Cushion Touch Blusher which I still love. The matte baby pink looks more peachy here since I'm wearing the Canmake Maxi Volume Rouge in 22 Peach Beige that I got as a gift from Eki. Thank you for the lippy babe I love the color sooo much! I'm very much obsessed with peach shades lately. ^.^


I know this is terribly late and I had already posted this color in my last nail post but I wanted to show how my NYX Las Vegas polish matched the eye color and also my shirt. I LOVE MATCHING OKAY? We should all have our own club called "matchers anonymous" where we can commiserate about how our lives aren't color-coordinated enough.


And this shot I think came out a bit artistically so I just wanted to share. My lovely Lioele Princess Mirror which I <3 a little too much. Speaking of which, yes, the coupon code frmheadtotoe still works at prettyandcute.com for a free princess mirror for orders over $30. You can choose baby pink or hot pink, just write frmheadtotoe in the comments at checkout. I was getting a lot of questions about it. :)


Time for dinner and editing more videos! Love you guys and hope you have a fun, fantastic, amazing weekend! I'll just leave you with one question to answer in the comments: If you color-coordinated an entire outfit from head to toe (har har) what color would you choose?

xoxo

  1. lol whenever I coordinate a matching outfit, it's usually black and white, black and gray or gray and white... or black with pops of random bright colors. XD I'm usually t-shirt and jeans... and that doesn't usually match :)

  12. I've always heard you shouldn't match your makeup with what you wear, but I think you can make such a great fashion statement that way! I love your green coordination, it's very wearable and fun. ;) I would love to try out purple and maybe green, since I rarely wear green on my eyes and I only have 1 purple piece of clothing. :)

    I can't wait for more videos, Jen!

  14. i love to colour coordinate too! i cannot have shoes and clothes that do not match. i love to colour coordinate shades of blue :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Shades of purple =D I love to wear my purple cardigan/top/dress and match it with purple eyeliner or eyeshadow.

    The lioele BB cream is working nicely atm but I have nothing to compare it with since its my first time trying BB cream after reading your review on it. I had always pictured the princess mirror to be bigger but nonetheless its adorable =]

  21. i looove green eyeshadows! there's something un-used about them (i dunno if that's the right term) but not a lot of people wear it as compared to other colors.

    i recently ordered the lioele bb cream so i'm excited to try it out! i also have the skin79 hot pink one and yeah it is glowy nice bb cream.

    to fallow you with Blogloving

    nice for allot of us :)

  23. This is a very hard question I think xD maybe I'd choose ... hmm... something like a peach/coral color. This makes a great, fresh teint and looks great on nails!

    The makeup is great! I think I'll wear it tomorrow, cause my nails are green at the moment and I love matching, too

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love this look! Just discovered your blog & I'm loving looking at all the beauty products.

    ReplyDelete
  25. you look great as usual. Green is really bold for me but I would like to try it out. In your pictures, your face looks longer than usual, it's probably the angle.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  29. love this look on you! SO pretty !
    and to answer your question, i would choose purple :) my absolute favourite colour ~~~~

    ReplyDelete
  30. the green really brings out your eyes, it like a little "hey look at me, notice my eyes" kind of thing

    for color coordinating an outfit, i would go for the neutral shades like black, white, and grey because they're so versatile and anyone can pull it off

  38. Did you know that you look phenomenal with green on your eyes? I recommend you to throw all pinks and wear only forest green ;)
    My eyes are blue and I think I can't wear green ;(
