Charming Chartreuse

Did you know that Chartreuse is the most visible color to the human eye? Did you know that yellows and greens contrast beautifully with blues and purples? Yes? No? Are those enough questions for you? Alright. I created a look for you guys that uses opposite colors of the spectrum without making them clash and yes, it is's all about the liner! 

I recently got a package from Lime Crime that contained their wonderful liquid liners (review coming this week!), and my favorite of the bunch is a lovely neon yellow-green color named Citreuse. It's so beautiful and unique and I just HAD to use it in this look (it originally only had black liner, but I am so glad I decided to throw in the neon liner). It takes any look to the next level, and it's definitely not for the faint of heart.
