Spring Greens Makeup FOTD and Tutorial

Makeup Tutorial - Green and Blue Step-by-Step Tutorial

Bright colors for a fun look, but in a classic application - perfect for those color shy

Mackenzie’s Notes:

Since warm weather has finally arrived in New York City, I’ve been wanting to pull out my brighter colored lipsticks and eyeshadows and play with them more, and this past weekend, I deemed that it was time!  After winning this beautiful YSL eyeshadow quad in a recent St. Patrick’s giveaway from Vernonika (visit her lovely blog here), I wanted to put those beautiful green shades to work in a Spring Greens inspired look. This look was also inspired by Kelly Rowland’s new video “Kisses Down Low” in which she showcases some fun makeup looks (go watch it, I bet you’ll get some inspiration).

I tried to recreate a more wearable eye shadow by keeping the fun colors and applying them in a subtle smokey eye fashion. In this Spring Greens look I wanted to similarly use a yellow green shade, a medium green and a pop of blue eyeliner and white eyeliner to make this look as fresh as possible and to make my brown eyes pop.  I paired it with a pastel pink and I love the results! Go try it for yourself, I promise it’s fail proof.

I kept my outfit relatively simple (think black V neck and jeans) and my hair straight to let this makeup be my accessory
