Green and Gold Holiday Makeup

IMG_4168-cropDoes anyone else have an aversion to a certain eyeshadow color? For me, it’s green. I have grayish-green eyes so putting a green shadow around them has never done them any favors. I usually just think it looks gross, hence avoiding the color all together. When I saw the colors Forest and Black Ivy in the new LORAC Mega Pro 2 palette, I felt inspired to challenge myself with this holiday makeup look. LORAC knows what they’re doing and I thought it was about time I tried to go green. Watch my tutorial to see!

IMG_4165-cropI actually really like how it came out. I think it definitely helps that the greens I used were blackened greens, not yellow greens. The gold addition also warms things up and breaks up the green.

IMG_4166I’ll be working on a cooler-toned holiday makeup look next from this palette. Thanks so much for reading!
