FOTD Fridays: Pink + Turqoise

I think this was by far the most difficult make-up look I've attempted to do so far, phew! It was done using the Coastal Scents 88 matte palette and what made it time-consuming was 1. using bright colors and 2. getting them to show up & not fade by layering a ton of eyeshadow on. The blue and mint green shadows where all used wet to deepen intensity. Also, you can make this look less bright or smokier by adding more black in the outer corner.

Make-up used:
NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Milk
Maybelline Colossal mascara
MAC eyeliner in Graphblack
Estee Lauder brow pencil
MAC Shroom (highlight)

From the CS 88 palette (marked from A-G in order used):
A: Sea blue
B: Baby blue
C: Light baby blue
D: Light mint green
E: Hot pink
F: Fuchsia
G: Black

Thanks u both :)

Yeah I'm also usually scared about mixing bright colors and always stick to neutrals. It's become fun experimenting though (even though it can be hit and miss). :)
