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

January 20, 2010

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 Nicole Farhi Spring 2010. 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?!

Pastel Purple with Teal eyeshadow and Nude Lips FOTD

    What eye cream are you using and how old are you (if you don’t mind me asking?)

    Those are Dueba lenses in Hyper Brown.

    love the look! what did you use for contouring your nose?

  • Reply Phyllis January 22, 2010 at 12:55 am


    I used the MAC Pearlmatte Face Powder. It comes with four different shades and I used the browns to contour and the yellow gold to highlight.

    I love this look. I always thought that an entire wash over the entire eyelid might look too out there for my asian eyes but this look is really pretty!
