Shit happens. When traveling or staying over situations where I absentmindedly left my brushes at home, I find myself struggling with the lack of tools to apply my eyeshadow. Other times, I find a single, random eyeshadow color in a beauty event press kit. What am I supposed to do with lime green? Hence, I decided to come out with this makeup tutorial using only a cotton bud and a single color eyeshadow to create this fresh look. So the next time you happen to be in my shoes, you know what to do! (;
