Pink Orchid Inspired FOTD

Hi everyone, here's an old FOTD that I dug up and thought it would coincide nicely with the upcoming Spring . It's inspired by the natural bright colours of a pink orchid. I've gone for pinkish cheek and lips, and a bright spring green for eyeshadow.

Products Used:

Creme de la Mer SPF Fluid Tint, Light
MAC Villains Beauty Powder, Oh So Fair

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Eyeshadow, Enchanted Meadow
Canmake Glow Twin Color (pink shade used on centre of eyelid)
Collection 2000 Extreme Liner
MAC Opulash Mascara, Bad Bad Black

Burberry Lip Cover, Hibiscus 20

The Estee Lauder Eyeshadow in Enchanted Meadow is a fresh light green. On my cheeks I used MAC Beauty Powder in Oh So Fair, a gorgeous pale pink shade which gives a slight glow.

On my lips I used Burberry Lip Cover in Hibiscus, a lovely reddish pink. It's quite a rich colour, so I stained it onto my lips using my fingers to make the colour look sheerer.

  9. You look so nice and fresh! Love the liner!

  10. So pretty. Super wearable and fresh for spring. I like how you had just a hint of green and also a lighter shade. It doesn't take away from the pinky cheeks and lips.

  14. Lovely look and I think Hibiscus really picked up one of the many rosy shades of the photo.:D

    Have a happy weekend, Penelope!:D
