Looks: Tangerine Green

tangerine green 01

Hello everyone,

I’m sorry I didn’t have the time to take step-by-step photos this week, but I hope you will enjoy the look anyway. I’m on a green kick lately and this time I paired it with a soft orange shade. Here’s how it turned out:

Products used:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance

– BFTE Mineral Eyeshadow in Tangerine

– Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash
Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint SPF15
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer

– Benefit Coralista Blush
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Coral Reef

1. Start by applying and eyeshadow primer all over your lids. This will prevent the makeup from creasing and fading throughout the day.
2. Pat a shimmering military green (I used the one in the Sleek Makeup Original Eyeshadow Palette) on the middle part of the lid, and on the middle part of the lower lashline too.
3. Apply a shimmering forest green shade (I used the one in the Sleek Makeup Original Eyeshadow Palette) on the outer part of the lid and on the crease. Blend. Apply the same shade on the outer part of the lower lashline too, and blend again.
4. Apply a soft orange shade with gold shimmers (I used BFTE Mineral Eyeshadow in Tangerine) on the inner parts of the lid and lower lashline and blend where it meets with the green.
5. Highlight the browbone with a shimmering soft yellow shade (I used the one in the Sleek Makeup Original Eyeshadow Palette).
6. Line the outer half of your upper lashline with a black pencil eyeliner. Then, smudge it. Apply mascara.

1. Apply either a foundation or tinted moisturizer to even out the skintone and dab some concealer on those areas that need some extra coverage. Set everything with powder.
2. Sweep a coral pink blush (I used Benefit Coralista Blush) on the apples of your cheeks.
3. Apply an orangey coral lipgloss (I used Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Coral Reef) on your lips.

    Coral Reef suits you so well! :] I love greens on you and no need to apologize for not having the step-by-step pictures! Like on Pinterest, a simple picture or two can be enough to inspire or show.

    I have a question about the newsletter from this week: If the hair dye is permanent, it just means you’ll have to chop off the dyed hair to have your original hair color again, right? It doesn’t mean your scalp now grows blonde or dark brown hair.

      Janessa, thank you for sending it to me, I love it!

      Yes, I believe the hair will keep growing in its natural colour. But even then, I’m not sure I like the option of a permanent dye. I mean, it’s reassuring to know, if you end up with a bad dye job, that you can wash it off in a few days.
