Makeup Look: Pop of Green

The thing I really like about makeup is that there's no right or wrong way to do something and the amount of looks you can create is endless. When I do my makeup, I usually stick to all the neutral shades. But today, I felt like stepping out of my comfort zone. I experimented using a colour I would normally stray away from, and in the end I surprisingly really liked how it turned out.

I chose to do a simple makeup look with a twist: a pop of green. The other day, while sorting through my makeup drawer, I rediscovered a dark green liquid lipstick. It's ColourPop's Ultra Matte Lip in the shade Dr. M. When I saw it on the website, I had no clue when I would wear it but it was such a beautiful shade that I just couldn't pass up. Well, the day finally came where I was able to use it and this is how it turned out..

For my base, I primed using the NYX Angel Veil Primer with the Hourglass Vanish Seamless Foundation Stick on top. To brighten up my under eyes, bridge of the nose, and centre of the forehead, I used a mixture of the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer & MUFE Ultra HD Concealer and set it with the RCMA No Colour Powder.  I then used the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer and Makeup Geek Contour Pan in Complicated to bronze and contour. For my blush, I dusted MAC Harmony *surprise surprise*. To highlight, I hit my cheekbones and the tip of my nose with a shade from the ABH That Glow Glow Kit

Onto my brows, I have on my trusty NYX Micro Brow, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo, topped with the Benefit Gimme Brow. As for eyeshadow, I did a light sweep of brow eyeshadow on my crease, created a wing using the Tarte Clay Pot Waterproof Liner, then took two shadows from Makeup Geek (Enchanted Forest & Sea Mist) to add a pop of green on my lash line, finishing off with some falsies and mascara. Lastly, the star of the show, the gorgeous ColourPop liquid lipstick in Dr. M that I mentioned above. 

What's the boldest colour you've ever worn outside?
