Mint Gold - Spring FOTD.

I wanted to do something somewhat neutral in the crease but with a pop of colour on the lid and gold glitter on the lower lashes. I think that gold/coppers are a great way to do glitters because you can very easily incorporate them into any neutral look to make it more fun but still somewhat sophisticated. The mint green colour is gorgeous and very spring appropriate! I paired it with a bubblegum pink lip and cheeks because I liked the contrast against the mint, but a more nude lip would also work well. I also tried it with lower lashes if that's your thing... It definitely makes it more dramatic! I later added in a mini tutorial/step by step on this look. I'm not sure how useful these are but I have been asked to do more tutorial type posts for those who want a step by step of the look in order to achieve something similar. In any case, I hope it's of use to someone! Enjoy :)
