FOTD: Nicole Farhi Spring 2010 Inspired Purple and Green Makeup Look

Looking at all these spring beauty trends and runway pictures has got me wanting to wear spring makeup already!

Below is a face I just did inspired by the look at the Nicole Farhi Spring 2010 show. Since my skintone is different from the models, I opted for a different green on the lower eye to match with my shirt instead. When is spring going to come?!
