4 Summery Makeup Combinations Using MAC True Chartreuse Pigment

Pair it with browns as a way to wear chartreuse without it being overly bright. The brown helps to tone it down and makes it look very earthy.

Summery yellows work really well when coordinated with True Chartreuse. It helps bring out the yellow-tones in the color, making it more yellow than green.

Paired with teals and greens to go really colorful!

Make it pop with bright liner on your lower lash line. Use blues and greens and teals!

    I don’t have True Charteuse but I have Bitter, which is fairly similar (perhaps a bit greener I think). I have on a similar look to the first picture today – my first day of wearing Bitter since I got it, actually! I used Greenstroke paint pot as a base, Bitter on lid, Tempting in crease, a little Embark in the outer v and a light cream-gold highlighter (Urban Decay Midnight Cowgirl) for the browbone. I really like it – quite defined and colourful but the brown tones it down a bit, as you say. When I was putting on Bitter, I thought it might look really good along with a nice teal or blue in the crease, blended out with other colours. Think I will have to try that!

    I wear mine with the violet family pigments. I think it is Vis a violet. I place the chartreuse on the entire lower lid and then add my violet to the outer corners and crease. But I love your look #3 with the teals, I am going to try that next time.

  4. I had to copy your EOTD paired with teals, it

    I LOVE chartreuse, one of my fave colors! I’m wearing it today (St. Patty’s) with Golden Olive in the crease!

    Pretty! I love greens

  7. I like to wear mine with chart rue paint on lid and true chartreuse over that then Kelly green in crease with deep blue green to darken outer v and bitter to highlight
