Green and red together at last! I paired an olive green crease/outer corner with a bright red lip using mistletoe as my inspiration. They have these beautiful white, cream colored flowers/berries/buds so I put that color on my highlight, inner corner and water line. The leaves are very curly so I made my wing do the same! I hope you enjoy!
I don’t normally put green eyeshadow on, I always default to browns for an everyday look…i think I just found my new everyday color! It really brought out the green in my eyes! I would still consider this olive green color fairly neutral too, because it’s such an earthy color.
I know I’ve posted quite a few looks with red lipstick, but I don’t normally wear red lipstick. I feel like I can sometimes look too much like Ronald McDonald because of how fair I am. When I do happen to wear red lips it’s usually with very little shadow and very light neutral eye colors so that i don’t look too garish. I was pleasantly surprised that this green olive color paired so nicely with the red.
WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK!?
