Lime Green & Pink Cut-Crease

Lime green and hot pink are probably my favorite colors, they look so good together, and are perfect for summer!

1. Apply a primer and MAC 'bitter' eyeshadow all over the lid with MAC #242 brush
2. Cut the crease with a hot pink liner, and blend out with Sugarpill 'dollipop' eyeshadow with #228 brush
3. Line upper lash line with a black gel liner (my favorite is by Act 5 Cosmetics), with MAC #210 brush
4. Bring liner into the waterline with the same liner brush and smudge out with #228 brush, apply Red Cherry  WSP lashes (x2), and add mascara :)

My new obsession - MAC Sweet & Sour lipstick from the 'all about orange' collection. It is a light nude with a peach undertone, creamy texture (cremesheen), slightly shiny finish and opaque coverage. It's perfect with a smokey eye, my new favortie!

Then and Now

The top photo was taken about 5 years ago, before I started doing makeup. Aren't my eyebrows the best? (LOL)
I wanted to show this comparison to prove that practice really does make perfect. If I can get better then so can you! It's just makeup, it can be wiped off and re-done, don't be afraid to try new things and experiment with new techniques. You can't get worse you can only get better. I hope this brings encouragement.
