In which I wear green and enjoy it.



I never thought I would go completely nutso for green eyeshadow, but it turns out I do. I like them with my hair and you can go a bit brighter and funkier with greens without looking too OTT, if that bothers you.

Anyway, enough yakky, more look-y:






Eyes: Lid, Barry M Dazzle Dust in Mint. Crease and lower lashline, Wet & Wild Envy. To darken crease/lower lashline, black from Sleek circus. Highlight, Inglot matte 351.
 You don't get full-faced photos for this look because I looked like a twat in them. I hardly ever darken the crease with black, but where the two greens were so different I felt I ought to go a little more dramatic.



Eyes: Lid, Fyrinnae Danse Macabre. Crease, Fyrinnae Meerkat. Outer V, Wet & Wild Envy. Highlight, Inglot matte 351.


I'm trying to use up several makeup items and my sample of Meerkat is one of them. It's got gorgeous green sparkles so it's a perfect fit with Danse Macabre. And of course, Envy got another look-in because it's rad.

What are your favourite green eyeshadows?

  5. I love green eyeshadow! The top look is my favorite. I think I'm going to blatantly rip it off, err, I mean, it will inspire me to create my own version.

  12. Love that second look, I like how the purple gives it that extra pop of color. I've been feeling the same way about teal as of lately, it sneaks into a lot of my favorite looks these days!

  16. Hello!

    I was stumbling across the internet, when I noticed that this blog: http://facemakeupcare.blogspot.com
    is stealing content wholesale from your blog. The peron, with blogger profile: http://www.blogger.com/profile/09740263881872611033 is apparently running a few blogs, all of which steal content (including mine). Thought I'd let you know just so you can take action!

  17. My favourite greens are my inglots and sugarpill chromalusts but ALL GREENS and ALL BLUES are my favourite really. Forevs.

    You suit green. And also, I wore green and purple shadow the other day, and I felt like Barney the Dinosaur :(

  22. I love your post and blog so much!!!.))

    I need your help. I spend another survey but this time with another question.
    "Where do you prefer to shop? What is your favorite shopping center?"

  24. I really love WnW Envy on you, I've been enjoying olive-y types of colours lately. I think my favourite green is the sparkly green part of MAC's mineralize duo She Who Dares.

  25. you totally wore your t shirt inside out again, didnt you? i looooooooooove the first green. the second one looks awesome, but it screams false lashes and all that jazz to transform into a halloween witch look or something, while the first one is just perfect and speaks beauty on its own xx
