another bright purple/green monstrosity

Because I’ve been listening to a lot of saccharine dance-pop lately, and for some reason that makes me want to use as many vivid candy colors as possible. I think the real “art” to prettily pairing purple and green eludes me. But this isn’t bad.  The full face shots were too harsh, but I included a close up of the lips anyways, because they are so pretty.

      Thanks. I’m just happy the photo actually shows it, if you look close… It’s just the PERFECT densely sparkly berry sheen. I love darker berry lip tones!

    I love this colour combination! It looks so awesome with your eye colour. 😀 Custom lip looks awesome too.

    I tried this out today, subbing in hysteric for paperdoll and it still looks gorgeous [even if I am a total makeup noob]. Don’t ever stop doing purple/blue/green monstrosities, ever. ❤ This looks amazing!

      I just got hysteric, and haven’t played with it much yet. I bet the shimmer is really striking. Maybe a bit more difficult to blend the falloff, but it could easily be done….

      I’m glad the look worked for you! it’s certainly a fun one to do.
