Gold, Green, Purple & Bronze Makeup Look with Cool Shimmer 88 Palette

No, I didn't get a haircut. I didn't realize my hair was doing this until I saw the pictures on my puter. I have really long hair with lotsa layers. It's about 3 inches below my bra line in the back with chin length layers in the front. I had my hair up while doing my makeup then let it down and it just fell this way. Looks cute though. Although I really need to dye my roots. Hee hee.

So anyway, onto the look. I used the cool shimmer palette again. I REALLY love the colours. This palette is way better than the original shimmer palette. They are so vibrant and jewel-toned. I was going for a very vibrant look on the lid, with a sort of neutral look on the lower part and NO liner. I never do that so I wanted to try something different. Let me know what you think!
Not sure why I look mad here...I'm not!

 Cool Shimmer 88 Palette Chart (I made this!)

  1. Great look! I love the way the gold and green fade into each other. On a side note, I would murder to have eyelashes as long as yours! xo

  2. it's a cool and unique combo - but i think i like your more bold and defined looks better.
    however, while doing eotds every day, varity is nice from time to time. ^^

  3. Cuteee! I love the glitter of the purple. I also love your hair in the picture!

  4. This is so pretty! I recently got my grubby paws on the cool shimmer palette, it is so beautiful! I think I like it better than my original 88. :)
