Laguna Green | fotd

 
Hi guys,

I've had a Coastal Scents eye shadow sample for well over a year and a half now and have never used it! It has a gorgeous green shade called Laguna Green (hence the title of this post!) so I decided to create a look with it.



I used Coastal Scents Laguna Green on the inner section of my eyelid. Soap and Glory Wild Blue on the middle section and Coastal Scents Indigo on the outer section. I used Soap and Glory Minky in my crease and to darken and add definition to the outer crease I used the shade Siesta from the Sleek Del Mar Volume II palette.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation, 100 Ivory

Maybelline Master Brow Palette, Deep Brown
Prima Lashes #43
Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara (lower lashes)
Rimmel Lip Liner, 018 Addiction
Topshop Lipstick, Nevada

Blues and greens tend to be hard colours to make work for everyday wear. I think this look is ok for everyday wear because the colours aren't super bright and I think the beige/brown crease keeps it from looking over the top - if that makes sense!

Let me know if you ever wear blue/green eye shadow!

Thanks for reading,

  2. The eyeshadow colour is so pretty! Did you wear a primer underneath? (I can't find it in the list of products) Because it must be good if it shows up so pigmented ^^ Also love your earrings!

  14. This is such a great look! Whenever I have colors in palettes that are bright like this, I always feel iffy about them because I never know what to wear it with, but I love how this looks, and you're right it's subtle enough to wear everyday. So creative!

    1. I used to be the same, until one day I thought I'd try to make them wearable for everyday lol. Just play around with them and you'll figure out what looks/colours you like! x
