Look: Green and gold bright eyeshadow look to compliment handmade Peruvian necklace

I went shopping at Ten Thousand Villages recently and found a lovely handmade Peruvian necklace.  If you are unfamiliar with this store, they are a nonprofit fair trade retailer of artisan-crafted goods from around the world.  The necklace I purchased has very intricate design with hand-made wiring and  lime/sage green colored stones (see photos below).

I wanted to do a look that highlights the lovely greens in the necklace, so here you have it.

Keep in mind when you do a look that highlights a particular piece of jewelry, you want the rest of your look to be toned down, and not draw attention away from the jewelry you intend on being the focal point.  For this look I’m actually just wearing an off white paper thin v-neck tee, skinny jeans and nude pumps.  I wanted the rest of the outfit to be low-key so that the necklace stands out on its own.

For this look I used colors from a variety of palettes but I think the Kat Von D True Romance Ludwig palette is a great alternative to the colors I used and has just about everything you need all in one affordable kit ($34.00)
