Makeup of the Day | Lime Crime + Urban Decay Vice 2 + the Fun Palette

Lime Crime how I love thee.

Lime Crime does funky, opaque lip colors like no other. Their scent is amazing, they go on smooth and they stay in place, eliminating the need for lip liner. I have eight shades (so far!) but my latest favorite is Chinchilla, a grey with purple undertones.

Here’s how I wore it for the first time:

I chose to focus the attention on the lip color by keeping the eye makeup pretty simple.

While there were a couple of people at work that asked if I was okay or told me I looked “gothic” but the majority of the responses were positive. My peers seemed to dig the funky, edgier look as much as I did.

Why I love this color? Well, obviously because it’s purplish (sort of), but also because it’s a way of embracing the edgy black lipstick trend in a more wearable tone.

Makeup of the Day | Maybelline Color Tattoo Emerald Green + Lorac

Having brown eyes, I tend to avoid blues and greens when it comes to eyeshadow. I’ve recently been trying to embrace these hues by finding different ways to wear them, without looking like a crazy person.

Here’s my most recent green-shadow look:IMG_7465

I chose to make it more user-friendly by using a taupe color in my crease and a plum color in my outer v. This helps make it a usable look and the plum helps make it brown-eye-friendly.
