Colour Pop Mondays In Malibu: Gecko

Gecko is such a fun color because one would think it leans more toward a gray with pink shimmer but you could even see it as a baby blue, which is why in my brain I paired it up with a bright turquoise color. It would not only make a great lid color but you could also use it as a subtle highlight on the cheekbones as well. I also used a new foundation which I had received a sample of in my Sephora order because I needed new mascara, but it was a few shades too dark but it's the new Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Vanilla and I do like it, I do have some bumps from breakouts before that so in some spots its hard to apply evenly in some areas but I feel like the coverage is pretty nice but I would have to try maybe two shades lighter to give a better opinion of it.
 I was feeling creative so I did a dual colored lip to give it a little more definition, so I did a darker color on the outside and just a pop of color on the inside.

Here's my look:
