Green EOTD

In the past, I hadn't been able to find greens that work on me. I finally found a combination that seemed to work well.

Products used:

Maquillage GR764 (Spring 2010 LE)
MAC Remotely Grey
MAC Humid
Canmake Shading Powder 01
Dior Ultra Smooth High Impact Eyeshadow 486 Bronzy Night
Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Bronzer
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner
Talika Lipocils

Today, instead of my usual MAC Painterly for base, I used the cream base in the Maquillage palette. MAC Remotely Grey over contour area, from crease line, blending up into brow bone. Very lightly applied Canmake Shading Powder in contour area between inner eyes to create illusion of a nose bridge. Maquillage Light Green Eyeshadow on eyelid from lashline to just above crease line. MAC Humid on outer half of upper eyelid blending to just above crease line and blending towards inner eye in the crease. Dior 486 Bronzy Night in ">" shape on outer upper eyelids. Also lined outer half of lower lashline with Bronzy Night. Also very lightly did a "<" shape to upper inner eyelids using Bronzy Night. (I hope that this all makes sense.) Using the Light Green from Maquillage, I lined inner half of lower lashline. Smashbox Bronzer was used on brow bone as a highlighter. Lined upper lashline and outer half of lower lashline with K-Palette eyeliner. Talika Lipocils on eyelashes.

I think that all of my EOTD's are pretty much similar. Not really exciting, huh.

I like this kind of greyish grey look a lot! Love your makeup line up! ;)

I love olive browns. I find greens a really hard colour to wear as well - although I am fond of green nail polishes! (I know bizarre) But like you I like the more browny olive colours (on eyes and nails) and love the colours you have in your EOTD.

I admire your dedication because I tend to pull out one palette only, move quickly. Good idea to pull out different colours in other palettes!

Toodles + thanks for this

Thanks BV! I don't know if it's dedication so much as I never really worked with palettes before. I always pretty much used MAC individual colors and mixed and matched so I guess that it's more out of habit. Now that I'm branching out into different brands, I find that I like colors from different brands so instead of just sticking to "one brand" looks, I will mix the colors that I like from the different brands. Gives me more options that way.
