Petals to the Metal

Idag blev det en aprikosguldig färg på locket, och precis när jag hade tänkt applicera mascaran och bli klar så tänkte jag “ähvadfan” och kastade på lite duokromt rödbrunt/teal längs fransraderna. Den varma basen i båda skuggorna går så fint ihop och det knyter ihop de annars kontrasterande färgerna. Ännu ett kul sätt att addera lite färg till en look!


Today I’m wearing a peachy golden colour on my lids, and right when I was planning on applying my mascara and being done I though “ahh whatever” and applied some duochromed reddish brown/teal along the lashlines. The warm base in both shadows work well together and ties together those contrasting colours. Another fun way to add some colour to a look!
