Chameleon Inspired Makeup

When you guys entered the giveaway, I asked you to leave me an inspiration or color for me to do a look based on and the winner, makeupbydanisaddiction, suggested doing a look based on a Chameleon.  So that's what I did today.  I went in to do my makeup without having looked at any pictures to get inspired.  My hubby's way into lizards so I have a good feeling for the colors that chameleons usually are (I was thinking a bright green with some blueish greens and yellows mixed in).  Just in case you don't know what a chameleon looks like (which is totally fine, I've been asked like a million times if my lizards are either a chameleon or an iguana), here's a picture:

And this is the look I came up with using what I had in my head a chameleon looks like:
haha I look severely unattractive in this picture but it shows the colors pretty well
I used like a bajillion different colors so as best as I can recall, I'll tell you what I used:
~TFSI and NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in "Horseraddish"
~NYX ultra pearl mania "Jade"
~NYX ultra pearl mania "Lime"
~NYX eyeshadow "Black"
~Inglot eyeshadows in 384 (matte green), 372 (matte robin's egg blue color), 414 (dark pearl green), 60 (AMC bright yellow), 403 (pearl golden yellow)

I really wish you could see the colors better because in real life you can tell how many different colors I have on but oh well!  If I were to do it again, I probably would have thrown in some orangey colors too but I liked the way it looked.  And what goes better with green eyes than pink lips?  So I used some random Ulta lipliner and then Viva Glam Gaga on top to lighten it up because it was a little too dark for me.

Well, I hope you all have an incredible weekend!  Thanks so much for looking!!!
