Experimental toxic makeup

I don’t really know what this is.  It started as an innocent mistake. I still had product one the brush when i went to blend my crease, and POOF—-VERY drastic bright harsh contour!  So, working with that, I just decided to get really crazy with the lips, and play up the weirdness.  The thought crossed my head that it might be pretty with bright red lips, for a Poison Ivy look for a costume party, but that is not something I’ll probably explore any further.  At any rate, my poor little Rainforest eye makeup became a hideously fierce toxic waste makeup!

None of the pictures capture the color. It’s a BRIGHT jungle-y green.  Not teh Seafoam it appears in here. I tried several different lightings and though it got greener in some, there were other colors and contrasts messed up. I’m  disappointed.

    I LOVE IT!!!!!! There’s a high probability that I will steal this for Halloween… (yes I plan ahead)

    I especially love how it looks like your lips are glowing green!

    Thanks! That’s my favorite part too, since I couldn’t actually capture the bright green-ness of the eye colors. I have other looks I want to use that technique in, for the lips. I thought the green worked nicely to cancel out the optical illusion that really dark colors create, how they make things seem smaller. I think I like the depth my lips have.
