April Fools Limey EOTD

How is April Fools day treating you? ;)

Today I did a shimmery lime/aqua EOTD using mainly The She Space pigments. It's been sunny and quite warm for the season here today, so perhaps my choice of colors was inspired by the spring air... :)

These springy greens look wonderful on you and I love your "kissy" face.

Vanessa said...

Hi Robyn!
Thank you so much; I like these greens, but I have to be careful with greens, because if I pick the wrong shades my green eyes "disappear" or look dead... Well, it's trial and error :)

Phyrra said...

Vanessa, you are beautiful!
I love the colors :)
I just ordered some samples from TheSheSpace last night ;)
I really like Living with Flowers and Feathers & Crayons.
I'm all for shimmery aqua and lime!

Vanessa said...

Hi Phyrra!
Thank you! Ordered last night, how funny! First order? (I won't ask which colors you ordered, because I bet I'll find that out in a post soon, right?)
And yes, I think I recall somewhere that you're a sucker for these colors as well.. :#)

Phyrra said...

Yep, first order :)
Very long list, but yes I promise there will be a post.

Love your limey look! You look beautiful as always. A big kiss back to you also. It's pretty nice getting hugs and kisses online. Breaking into singing a very old song, "What the world needs now is love sweet love". An old Jackie DeShannon tune you can watch on YouTube.

Vanessa said...

Hi Lucy!
Thank you SO much! I like hugs and kisses :) Will have to look up that video on You Tube.
