Given that the eyes in this look are fairly bold, I opted for fresh, but neutral lips and cheeks. For blush, I layered NARS Deep Throat (my favourite shimmery pinky peach) over Laura Mercier Oleander (a cool pink cream blush) for a healthy glow. I also warmed up my complexion with the lovely Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder in Fair Matte which, without fail, warms up the complexion without ever looking orange or artificial. On the lips, I layered my longstanding favourite nearly-nude shade, YSL Glossy Stain in Beige Anarchist.
I started the eye look with an even layer of ARTDECO Waterproof Long-Lasting Eye Shadow Stick in Tropical Monsoon, a gorgeous seafoam green. I then grabbed my Marc Jacobs the Siren palette, sweeping the minty green shade all over the lid and applying the deep teal shade on the crease and outer corner for definition. I popped some of the golden yellow shade from the palette in the center of the lid, just above the crease, and on the inner corners of the eye to boost brightness, and finished things off with a touch of the shimmery white shade on the brow bone. For liner, I opted for the stunningly beautiful and easy-to-use ARTDECO All in One Liquid Liner in Sea Port, winging it out slightly. Then a couple coats of BeneFit They're Real! and the look was done!
