The Colors of Summer :: Coral And Green

I have been super into the color combination of coral and green lately.



I have always thought that CORAL was a breezy and fresh version of pink that most people can pull off, and of course everything is GREEN right now and in bloom because of these summer months.  I also dream of decorating one of the rooms in my house with this color combo, such as this dining room pic I found on the House Beautiful website- one of my fave inspiration sites for the home!  It's just such a bright and cheery combination!




So I treated myself to a super duper coral colored lipstick, Maybelline's ColorSensational "Coral Crush" ($6) and paired it with my NYX Jumbo Eye pencil in "Lime" ($4.50)  The result is a fresh faced summer look that is easy to pull off in the application department, as well as the wearable department! 
Disclaimer :: I wish this lipstick showed up as bright in these pics as it does in person, but it still looks very punchy.  But just imagine it being about two times as bright as it looks here!!


The complete breezy look.


 One big thick swipe of the lime pencil used ONLY on the lower lashline.
I used Stila "Oasis" shadow pan on the upper lid.



My new love, Coral Crush, on the lips.  Reminds me of a popsicle color!


I didn't use any blush with this look- only Snow Bunny Bronzer by Too Faced Cosmetics.

What are some of your favorite summer color combinations for makeup??
