B 'n D Makeover

Howdy folks.

In this makeover, i did something i've never done before....instead of using a brown or black to contour my eyes, i decided to use a dark green. It turned out pretty well if i may say so myself. Today, i realized i don't have a matte yellow in any of my palettes *Strokes chin thoughtully* I ought to do something about that. I wanted to use a matte bright yellow, but it also turned out that the shimmery yellow i have wasn't bright enough. #ResignedSigh

Today, i decided to try out my Graftobian HD foundation palette. Since i bought it in March, i haven't touched it. I wonder why i've been saving it all this while....maybe because it looked so pretty, brand new and untouched.....maybe because i want to use it to cook soup *Covers Face*.
There's a review on it coming up soon.

And then i changed the lip colour from 'Ice bloom' by Clinique to 'Mocha freeze' by MaryKay. Loud lipsticks like red or pink wouldn't pair well (i tried), so i settled for mild shades like these two i used.

Mocha freeze again

Still Mocha freeze

No 7 face primer by Boots
Graftobian HD foundation (warm)
Mary Kay concealers in Bronze 1&2
Sleek pressed face powder in 'Tropical bronze 470'
Black radiance blush in 'Soft Honey'

Tara's eye primer
Yellow and green eyeshadows from BH cosmetics 120 color palette (4th Edition)

'Ice Bloom' Lipstick by Clinique

So which lipstick paired better with the eyes? The 'Mocha freeze' or the 'Ice bloom'?
