FOTD: Elie Saab SS 2011 Inspired Chartreuse

Another Spring/Summer 2011 runway inspired look for you, this time based on Elie Saab's bold chartreuse and brown smokey make-up. I totally loved this look and found it a very wearable way to rock some bolder yellow and green hues (and yes, I went grocery shopping in it as well).

I used a new 120 eyeshadow palette from Manly for the look, which I'll be reviewing in detail later this month. But it's not bad, right? I've kept the cheeks and lips very neutral, with a touch of my Stila 'Hint' blusher and NYX Megashine lipgloss in Beige lightly patted on.

I couldn't keep myself from posting this cheeky shot - plus you get to see the eye make-up quite well here.

Do you ever incorporate chartreuse into your looks?

  1. You look absolutely beautiful!
    Chartreuse look awful on me, really it's the worse.
    But I'd love to try that look, I'm going to replace it with yellow, I think :)

  2. @Marie_Ella: I think yellow would look great as well, or lime green! Can't wait to see what you'll come up with :) x

  3. I would never even contemplate wearing a bold shade like that, but you totally rock it! It looks better on you than the model lol x

  4. This is SO pretty! I love it, great interpretation x

  5. wow that's such a cool way of wearing yellow! Might try out the same technique with pink x

  6. @The Nail Buff: Thank you, lovely :)

    @Marina: I loved that bright color, it really popped against the brown!

    @Sarah Edwina Rose: I'm glad it's giving you some ideas :) x

  7. What a great look.. love it! :-)

  8. It is definitely not bad! I actually like it. It's very bold and daring. Great job!


  9. Are you wearing the Graftoban foundation here? I really like your skin looks!

  10. @Carrie: Thank you, lovely :)

    @Kajal Couture: I think this was actually my old Coastal Scents mineral foundation... It's nothing special, I believe it just photographed well that day :) I'll feature the Graftobian very soon! x

  11. Wow, I never thought yellow eye shadow could look so good. You definitely are rocking that look!
