Look: Mangrove

Mangrove 2This is a (simple) look I did for an afternoon as I had to go to the esthetician. It is nothing really particular which can be worn also for the office. But it can also be amplified in order to become more dramatic for a night look. The colors are as usual quite neutral since it is a day look. Also for the lips, I kept them very light.

The brown green colors used remembered me the mangroves in Florida, so I decided to call the look “Mangrove”. The green eyeshadow I used is “Pistol” from the NAKED2 palette by Urban Decay. Since I always use the same colors for these series of palettes, I decided to work with the others too.

MangroveConcerning the lips, I applied a lipstick I purchased a long time ago which I never wore since my lips where not smooth enough. It made this kind of texture look pasty on my lips. It was everything but esthetic. I got from my recent trip to Paris the Prep & Prime stick from MAC and it is such a revelation!!! The difference is just amazing. I am really happy I purchased it; definitely worth the money!

Hopefully you like it. Until the next post!
