Early Spring...a NEW WORLD inspiration

Happy Hump (Wednesday) day!

I know I am dragging my feet this morning too but Friday is almost here - I can almost see it. I think what's helping me put some spring in my step is my EOTD.

I am counting down the days till my next payday - I really want this:

I would never have thought to put these two colors together (silver lilac/golden olive) but because I love Monsieur NARS I will do what he says! I decided to do a little lilac and green pairing. In my version I used the silver lilac side of my Melusine duo and I went with a more light green gold - Chanel Bamboo.

Swatch on NC 42 skin:

L to R:
Bamboo (lid)
Melusine duo (lilac shade - crease/matte purple - outer v)
MAC Sweet Joy e/s - limited edition (highlight brow bone)
**Layered over TFSI primer**

I know, I'm on a green kick right now. Please bear with me - I don't wear green often and I'm discovering my love for this eye shadow color.

I also used (once again) MAC Golden Lariat MSF and NARS Downtown gloss.

This is not a dupe for the new Spring NARS duo, Nouveau Monde (translates to New World) but my own little inspiration. It's also an exercise for me to make use of shadows I forgot I had (Chanel Bamboo).

This will make Mr. Lex proud - he likes when I'm efficient with my makeup!
