Makeup of the day : Bird of Paradise

We have had beautiful sunny weather here last week, it's about time! Anyway, it inspired me to do a tropical eye makeup with the gorgeous colors of the bird of paradise flowers. And because I received my Dose of Colors lipsticks and couldn't wait to play with them and show them to you, I decided to use the 2 new shades for this makeup look! Hope you'll like it and stay tuned for my review about these lipsticks!

  1. I like how you paired the lip and eyes together, the colours compliment each other really nicely. / Claire xxx

  2. I know this comment is coming in super late, but -- this look is perfection! I love the way the orange and violet pair together. Adding it to my beauty inspiration folder right now ;) ♥
