Two Dashes of Glam | Colorful Makeup

CC 2.0 by Colorful by Asja BoroŇ°

Happy New Year!!
Can you believe it is 2017 already? Well, Melissa, from kissandmakeupsbeautyblog, and I wanted to start the year with something slightly different. Instead of picking one theme for us both to work with... we chose to pick 3 different colors for one another and create a beauty look! Click ahead to see what went down... 

I picked out the colors green, orange and yellow for Melissa. What?! Yeah, I had the hardest time coming up with good colors for makeup, but I kept going back to those. I knew that green looks gorgeous on Melissa and that orange would work nicely with her hair.. about the yellow I was not sure (I mean, that is a hard color), but I was certain she could make it work! Anywho, the colors Melissa picked for me were: gold, grey and blue

Before I started doing my makeup I had already thought of adding blue and grey eyeshadow to my upper eyelid and golden below.. but things became slightly different once I came across my H&M eyeshadow palette (review coming soon), which had different kinds of blues and a silvery-grey. I applied the different blues + blue sparkles all over my eye lid and blended that out with browns in my crease. My lower lash line was colored with the silvery-grey eyeshadow.. and my inner-corner had the golden highlighter from my ABH That Glow Kit (review also coming soon). I also added that highlighter above my blush.. and boy did it shine. On my lips I wore my new lippie from Lime Crime in "Vibe" (yes yes, review coming soon...), because I wanted something different! On my cheeks I am wearing a new blush from Sephora that I bought in NYC (sorry, review coming soon - I am so behind). Now I know what you are thinking... the grey and golden bit is not as obvious as the blue.. and I was going to go for something more heavy, but ended up with a subtle golden glow on my cheeks and the inner-V of my eye and a little grey + sparkles on my lower lash line... but I like that because my lips are so bright and the blue is pretty dark. What do you think?

On to Melissa's way more exciting beauty look. At least, it sounds super exciting with shades like orange, yellow and green! How will she have combined them? Click here and find out! Then tell us what you think of our looks and how you would have done things with these color schemes?! Would you be more daring or more subtle? For an overview of past (2016) Two Dashes of Glam looks go here



  1. Melissa was right, the colors look amazing on you. I tend to stay away from blues, but maybe if I pair them with gold...

    1. Thanks, Anne! I think that combination would look gorgeous on you!
