Lovely in lime

One thing about Florida is our greenery. Despite the lack of changing colors, we always have reminders of spring. Next in the St. Patrick's day makeup look series is "lovely in lime." Please forgive the iPhone 3Gs photo quality. 

In the makeup draft, no prep or prime was used. MAC Cosmetics eye shadows in Lime and Aquadisiac were used - Aquadisiac over entire lid, Lime in crease. Black eyeliner was lightly applied to emphasis the eyes. Doing this still leaves the look romantic but adds depth. 

This look is a nice compliment to Leu Gardens or other Orlando park or garden. When coupled with bright clothes or flowers as props, the lime and aqua will be quietly bold. If you need flare, you can add Dazzle Green lashes from http://store.got-lashes.com to complete the eye makeup look. Their 30% discount ends 03/15/2011.

Lucky in Lime Crime

Orlando makeup professionals, in general, will admit that much of what they do is trial and error. Some sketch the looks before trying them. Others have mental images then try it on themselves. To continue with the St. Patrick's day makeup looks, this look was created using Lime Crime Makeup. It is similar to the earlier "Lovely in Lime."

The lids were prepped with MAC Prep and Prime. Lime Criminal was patted onto the lid, from the inner second quarter to the outer corner, with a stiff bristle brush. Citrus girl was added to the inner corners on both top and bottom lids. Mischief Managed was used to lowlight and add dimension to the upper lid by adding it to the crease and outer corner. Shoe Addict was used as eyeliner on the top and bottom lids. Troubadour was added to the lower lid to give more color. The draft look was finished with Airborne Unicorn on the lips. The purple was a nice compliment and did not look too purple in a professional office setting. Even if Orlando business offices are not ready for Lime Crime's fabulously and highly pigmented explosions of color, you can still have fun with Lime Crime. This citrus inspired look is very Florida with use of lemon and lime colors. "And don't it make my brown eyes blue..." you can too with these lovely colors. Blondes may have more fun, but brown eyed girls have the best of all worlds!
