On the second day I woke up a full hour earlier than usual to ensure I had enough time to put on my face. I was ready to look drastically different!
I opted for green eye shadow and a nude lip, because I thought the colors complemented each other. Plus, a neutral pout seemed understatedly cool against a bold eye. Though I was anxious about my makeup application skill, this look was suprisingly easy to do. I started with a light, skin-toned base and buffed the darker shadow below and slightly above the lid crease. Then, I applied a thin layer of the same shadow below my eye to add even more drama. It turns out eyeshadow isn't rocket science after all.
I also grew quite fond of the lip color because it wasn't too dark but it still added a level of complexity to my look. It's now a part of my regular regimen: foundation, blush, mascara, and a not-so-boring lip.
