I never realized how well this palette would work until I draped myself in this lime green scarf. I realized that even though I can pull off many colours, the fact that I can wear the light, warm, clear tones so well, probably indicates that I'm some sort of seasonal spring. I'm definitely going to play around with this palette!!!

The Lime Scarf Experiment
I recently did a write up post about MAC's So Chaud - I ended up getting quite a few compliments about the scarf I was wearing in the photo and a request to create a lighter, warmer look. I decided to do some colour experiments today and I settled on a look that I personally find very harmonious. So much so, that I like it much more than the soft, neutral-cool colours that I just blogged about. It's almost as if the colour universe Gods were saying 'wait, don't give up on warm, spring toned just yet' - lol. All kidding aside, I decided that since So Chaud was a 'loud' orange, that I should try a lighter peach shade. I picked NARS Barbarella!!! I had almost forgotten how much I ADORE this colour and how well it works against my skin tone! I wanted to keep the blush in the warm, clear tones as well, so I went with Stila Convertible blush in Coral. For the eyes, I went with Cork eyeshadow by MAC in the crease and phone number eyeliner. Although, next time I do this as a day look, I'm going to try a bronze/gold liner vs a grey shade. Here is the look I created:
