It’s fun to go back in time and look at how you’ve improved. One thing I really like about looking at looks I did a long time ago is to see what color combinations I used. Sometimes I still find some that I like! :) Case in point, even though my style has evolved from the presentation in this look, I am digging the this shade of green with the blue — and I like the blue on the waterline. Why didn’t I note what liner I used? Boo @ me. This look is from January 2006, just to give y’all a frame of reference. It’s over three years later, so hey — like I always tell people, practice, practice, practice!

Used: Golden Olive pigment, Lucky Green e/s in inner lid, Swimming e/s in middle of lid, Humid e/s on outer lid, Velvet Moss e/s on outer lid, Deep Truth e/s in crease, Juxt e/s from crease to brow, and Say Yeah! e/s on brow.

    This is really beautiful. I think you should have done a full face shot so that everyone could see how the eyes look with the rest of the face. Still really pretty though.

    So pretty. And blast from the past is a really good idea!

  18. Arika BH

    The vibrant color looks great! Were you using Plushlash back then? Your lashes seem thicker now, and more lush.

  19. Great look! I love the mix of blues and greens

  20. Rae

    really pretty

  21. cloudburst

    Could the liner be Auto-de-Blu?

  22. Faheema

    Wow this look is way too amazing!

    I love this color combo. I think your look 3 yrs ago is just as good as your looks today. But like they say, you are your own worst critic at times. I like that it is different than some of the looks we see you do presently which is nice. Keep the blasts from the past coming.
