Tropical Summer Makeup | Handpicked Beauty

Hey everyone,
So this is a really pretty, summery look which I think is so fresh and bright as the weather (hopefully) gets warmer! It combines two of my favourite colours; mint green and rose gold to create a beautiful look which is perfect. I think it's quite wearable but if you want to tone it down a little you can, by adding less eyeshadow, but equally you can make it more dramatic by bringing in some liquid liner and more mascara. Hope you like it!

Products used:
Natural Collection eyeshadow duo in Apple Frost
Sleek Contour palette in light -review-
Accessorize highlighter -review-
Acessorize eyeliner
Jack Wills mascara
MUA white eyeliner
Rimmel Apocalips in 'Stellar' -review-

I applied the rose gold shade from the Sleek palette all over the lid as it is so bright and pretty and makes your eyes stand out so well. 
I then applied the mint green shade from the natural collection palette under my eyes and in a flick on the edges of my eyes, as it is so pigmented and really makes your eyes pop! I think it is such a gorgeous way to wear colour for summer, without looking too overdone.
I then took the white eyeliner from MUA and applied in on my tear duct and half way down my waterline as it makes you appear more awake and brightens your eyes so nicely. And for £1 it's so pigmented! After that I took the 'frost' shade from the natural collection palette to go over the white eyeliner, and into the inner third of my eyelid to make the white stand out more.
I applied a bit of accessorize eyeliner on the corners of my eye to make them more defined, without looking too over the top.
I then coated on lashings of the Jack Wills mascara.
To finish off, I used the same rose gold blush on the apples of my cheeks and I used Rimmel Apocalips in 'Stellar' to give the whole look a tropical, fruity vibe.

Hope  you liked this look! 
Good luck to everyone with exams at the moment, 
lots of love,
