A Christmas Beetle Inspired Makeover

Christmas Beetle Eyes 2

I have been so stupidly busy lately that I have barely been able to find the time to slap some BB Cream on my face and swipe some mascara on before I run out the door of a morning. We had dinner plans with friends on Sunday night, and I knew I wanted to do something more than the basics, but it still had to be quick and easy. This is the look I cam up with.

My eyes are naturally very grey, however this combination of green and purple eye makeup really seemed to bring out the green in my eyes.
