Face of the day : Smokey Golden Olive eyes and Coral lips

 

Hey everyone!

Last Sunday I swatched my Green/Olive eye shadow collection for the Sunday swatch Gallery and promised a few green eye makeup looks, here’s the first of them! I’ve paired a shimmery smokey golden olive eye with an earthy coral lipstick and warm peachy blush. Its one of my favorite combinations, hope you all like the look!

[note color=”#FFCC00″]Since the green is warm with olive and gold tones, warm cheeks and lips go best with it! I’m loving the blush (Jordana powder blush in Sunlit Bronze) and the lipstick (Maybelline – Buff) . Both shades are amazing and I’ll be reviewing these soon! What do you think of the look?

    Its one of the best Olive Green Eye makeup i have ever seen Ankita! Its just soooo good! No words to say! Please post a tutorial! It will be damn helpful if you can! I was a person who used to shy away from green shadows and liners and now there has been such a change that I love wearing them every now and then!

      Thanks Parita! This is easier to click with the cam in the right hand and the light streaming in from the window! Have tried the other way but the pics don’t come out well.
