Hey girls & boys!! Today's makeup look is inspired by two things: the first being my pet plant ("who" is in desperate need of a name & suggestions are welcome :) and the second being the wondrous, joyful colors of Lime Crime* Makeup. As most of my regular readers know, I hardly ever wear green eyeshadow, but I love to experiment and try everything -- even if it's uncomfortable or quirky -- so today is that day!

Lime Crime eyeshadows blend like a dream and require the least amount of product for full pigmentation and opacity. This eye look was completed in about 5 minutes, mainly due to the fact that these shadows are so easy to work with. The photo above doesn't serve justice to the true saturation of the colors. I was having a hard time with my camera focusing mainly on the lashes, so the gold appears a bit washed out. For a truer representation of Goldfish eyeshadow, check out my Rasta-Maryam look & post. Also, read my review of Lime Crime's Uniliners, if you haven't done so already :))
Do you dare to be Green?
MY SKIN is airbrushed with Dinair custom foundation (though my medium range is becoming too light for my summer skin tone) and speaking of Dinair...
