FOTD - a bit of mint

As I decided to wear a powdery-pink studded blouse today, I wanted my make-up to match - soft, girly and with a bit of edge. :
  • To add to the girly, I went for a lovely mint shade for my eyeshadow (using the good old CS 88 Matte Palette, keep forgetting how great it really is, the finish, the hold, the color payoff!) and a pair of falsies and a white in the waterline for a doll-like finish. 
  • Then, to balance it out and add a bit of edge, kept the brows strong and added my signature red lippie - MAC in Ruby Woo! 
The look really is as easy as it sounds, for my foundation I used the usual Bourjouis Healthy Mix (and dabbed a little extra instead of using concealer in the problem areas - around the nose, under-eye, etc. for a very natural yet airbrushed effect) and highlighted my cheekbones, nose and chin with Benefit High Beam.
 
And I think this eyeshadow has started my mint obsession for the spring. What better shade to feel girly and spring-time-ready without being too much? And I am hunting for the perfect mint going out dress for my 21st (which is in exactly a month, not sure how I feel about it yet!) as I am writing this. Keep you updated on my progress, 
Take care,
S

P.s. What is your favorite shade this spring?
