LOOK: Summer Acid Brights...Pixiwoo Inspired makeup

One of my favorite makeup gurus on youtube under the username Pixiwoo (sisters makeup artist Samantha and Nicola from the UK) did a makeup tutorial inspired by the "Trend: Summer Acid Brights". The makeup look was so bright and beautiful on Nic that I was immediately inspired to do the same look. She did an extremely bright lime green eyes and coral orangey lips. It looks crazy but I LOVE it!

I just want to point out a couple of things. Whenever I do an inspired makeup look, I try to incorporate my own thing or know, tweak it a little here and there to make the look my own. So my version from Nic will be a bit different. Also, there is no way I'm trying to look like Nic. I'm just a really big fan of her and her sister's makeup skills...they're amazing!

 haha..uneven false lashes..oh nooo!

Watch my tutorial to find out how I did this look. 

I know this look is really bright and crazy but I would totally rock this out in public. But I may have to wait for the summer to do it since I feel like I can get away with wearing loud and bright eyeshadows in the summer lol. Thanks for stopping by ^_^
