Experiment with Coastal Scents 88 palette : Lime Green EOTD

Hi everyone!

I wanted to try a lime green eye makeup with more of yellow in the inner lid transitioning to lime green at the outer corner. The lemon yellow of the Coastal Scents 88 palette however turned out a little chalky and not so well pigmented so the eye makeup look looks more lime green than yellow. I’ve used MAC Siahi as base which has also added to the blue-green element.

Red smokey eye look with Coastal Scents 88 Palette + FOTD

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing a red smokey eye look using Coastal Scents 88 palette.

For this look, I’ve paired softly smoked red smokey eye with maroonish red lipstick in one look and red-pink lipstick in another with a little bronzer applied at the apples of the cheeks.

I’ve paired this makeup with a simple white top to avoid any color clashes.
