Minty Green

If anyone knows me at all they know I love anything mint. Chocolate, candies, lipgloss, the colour I LOVE IT ALL! So when I was shopping last week and I stumbled across this lovely mint green blazer there wasn't a question I was buying it. 

Since Spring isn't completely making it's presence known yet in Ontario where I live, my wardrobe is in the uncertain state, torn between winter and spring. Today, it was a little warmer than it has been, so I pulled out my mint blazer to wear to my office job. I paired it with grey leggings and black booties (which are now covered in mud :(,) I added this gold necklace with a cross on it to tie it together, and I love the look.

For my makeup I broke out the Inglot Freedom System my mom and sister got me when they were in New York City last summer. I had never really found the perfect time to use the colours because to me they scream spring and summer, and I didn't actually get it until August. So this morning I thought perfect, a great time to bust it out and have some fun. 

I wanted to keep it simple, because of the look I was going for, so I used my maybelline Colour Tattoo in Barely Branded as a base and then used the light shade all over my lid with my sigma E55 brush. I took the orangey sunset kind of shade in my crease and I used the E.L.F Essential Blending Eye Brush (I cannot believe it was only a dollar!) and then this micabeauty blending brush to soften out any harsh lines. I got the brush in my ipsy bag two months ago. I then took the minty green colour and used it under my eyes, taking the sigma E65 brush and gradually went along the colours the further away from my inner corner. 

On my lips I'm wearing MAC's Viva Glam V. For me it's almost this perfect "you're lips but better" colour and for some reason I am obsessed with the scent of it. 

What colour makes you scream spring?

  1. I love that mint green blazer... I am going crazy for mint green everything lately! And I totally agree about the MAC's Viva Glam, it's barely noticeable, it only enhances your lips!
