Green look using Nars Misfit and Bouthan eyeshadow duo- Green + Pink, yes!

Hi there,

I was so excited to get Nars Misfit in the mail that as soon as it arrived, I went to town!  I just got home from 8 hours of clinicals for my RN program, so I was feeling tired, but I think the makeup perked me up.  I have to say the green in Misfit is my favorite green eyeshadow.  It's so brilliantly lilypad/emerald/bright green that I can't say enough good about it.

So after a day in med/surg super focused on taking care of patients, nothing like a box with "Nars Cosmetics" on it to make your day even better!

Here's my FOTD using the Nars Misfit (permanent line) and Bouthan Eyeshadow (Spring 2013 release) duos.
