Lime Juice and Raspberries EOTD

Hi Guy and Dolls. A few weeks ago I did this look for fun, and I forgot about it entirely until I was going though my computer and deleting unnecessary photographs. I really wasn’t planning on putting this up as a blog post, but I used the picture as my twitter icon and a lot of you asked for a video or a list of what I used, so here you go!

I’m a sucker for lime green paired with purple or pink (or all three!).  Shimmer can look messy and the colors can sort of run together, at least when you are trying to do artistic makeup. Mattes help you create more defined color borders, but when you blend the colors, you can get more dimension out of it. The shimmer you see in this  came from the neon green color,  which has multi-dimensional shimmer, and the highlight, which has a violet/duo.  Anyway, I’m blabing on and on, here’s some pictures and a list of the colors I used:

lime juice and raspberries 3

Lime Juice and Rasperries

Lime Juice and Rasperries 2

I'm a bit obsessed with with Arabic style-eyeliner

Here’s what I used:

UDPP as a primer

A Matte Magenta (upper crease/brow bone blended out)

A Matte red-Violet(Crease)

A Matte Blue-purple(crease/outer lid)

Iridescence Chartreuse  (lid)

Violet duo-chrome(inner corner)

NYX White

Migi Velvet Liner in Black

Urban Decay Zero 24/7 liner

I don’t remember what the bottom purple was, but it was probably Ransom 24/7 liner form Urban Decay

Imju Fiberwig Mascara -this stuff is SO cool, I really need to do a review (even if it’s blog only)

    I got the matte stack as a present for order mistakes, and I didn’t think I liked mattes….OMG, just like everything else Jen makes, the matte stack is bomb-diggity. I LOVE Razzle Dazzle, Drama (which is like a matte Indie, one of my other favs!, and Tickle Pink!

    I love the look 🙂
    I really like lime green with magenta, purple or teal.
    I really like the way you did your liner on the inner corner of the lower lash line.

    aaaaahhhh!!!! I love this!!! I am pretty sure I have all the calypso colors due to Jens enormous generosity (except the NEW fall mattes)!!! I cannot wait to try this out!!! This is such a beautiful color combo…I have been sporting a similar look with the lime-light, grape pop and razzle dazzle!!! You are so talented and creative and I am always soooo excited to see what is new with vintage or tacky!!! Thanks!!

    Okay. Last comment.
    I know you get this question/request a lot but if you ever get the chance, could you list comparables for these calypso colours with BFTE?
    I just placed my first BFTE order and the site is kinda nuts and I cant find colours and most dont have descriptions and some colours arent even listed under there category and …basically, its a bit of a chore.
    This look is FABULOUS and Id love to find similar colours.
