This is a citrus delight indeed. I find getting dressed monochromatically to be extra easy and by far, the most chic. I clearly have a thing for lime green and lemon yellow. Together, they’re a match made in heaven. Think Italian summers and sorbet ice cream! This week I’m gearing up for two weeks of travel and I’m mentally packing by color. My first stop is San Francisco so I’m dreaming up soft neutrals like navy and nudes. Then I’m off to Auckland, New Zealand where bold red and hot pink should easily brighten up this chilly city as it heads into winter. I am so ready for a little end of summer work trip mixed in with loads of adventure. Today I’m in right smack in the middle of the color spectrum where shocking yellows and greens are brightening up even the gloomiest of hot summer days in NYC.
Green may just be one of my favorite colors. I picked up an Urban Decay eyeshadow palette and felt like bringing back the 80’s with this lime green shimmer. It’s funny how something so simple and subtle can completely change my mood. That’s what I love about beauty. The ability to transform and lift your spirits with just a little swipe of color. Sometimes a girl just wants to have fun. On the day-to-day, I get stuck in my 5 minute makeup routine: I love my usual bronzed eye shadow and berry lip. This summer I am switching things up and digging into my overflowing beauty cabinets and experimenting with new color palettes I’ve never dipped my fingers into. For this look, I like to do a single pop and keep the rest of my face pretty bare. I nixed my usual cat-eye liner to let the green really do its thing, and just added a touch of mascara, a peachy cheek, and nude pink lip. Talk about fresh! How are you playing with color this summer?
