Pink + Green Look



I like to experiment with colours. So, this time.. I tried out the combination of green and pink eye shadows to see what would it look like, if I mixed the colours together. I just love the combination of green + pink whether it be with flowers .. wall paintings .. etc.



I just knew that .. pink and green aren't suitable to be combined together in case of eye shadows  ? coz green falls in a warm colour and pink is under cool colour category. Hmm ... is that so ?? 

"You may combine eyeshadows yourself; just ensure you choose both colours from the same (warm or cool) palette." 

So I quoted a note on combination colour tips of eye shadows. But what if we break the rules? coz make up is art  right ... hehehe. As long as it still looks beautiful on you ... I think it wouldnt be a problem...at all !

But then again .. the author shared her/his tips .. "For exquisite summer party makeup, mix bright or pastel colours from different palettes to create a special effect, but don’t overdo the blending."

ermm.. that confused me ! well .. no matter what .. I've tried to mix very light pink and green and a lil bit of purple colour .. and I think its a great combination ! Tell me what do you think ok :)

Hey there, just wanted to answer your question on your page so you'd get it :)

This is the first bad swapping experience I've had. Don't let it scare you away because you'll end up finding a ton of great products, getting rid of stuff you don't use and saving money. Just be careful about who you swap with and trust your instincts! Here is a great post on MUA swaps if you want more info:

Hope this helps!
