Make-up look | A summer look in fresh green and sky blue

Those of you who read the blog regularly know that I often find my make-up inspiration in the most random places and at the most random moments. It happened again recently when I was walking around in the neighborhood and realized how gorgeous the combination of fresh leafy green with bright sky blue actually is. Add a bit of mossy green to that plus the reflection of the warm spring sun in the blue waters of Lake Geneva, and you have the perfect ingredients for a summery make-up look in green and blue!
