I feel like I haven’t done a really green look in forever! Of course, forever just might translate to a month or two, but that’s too long, right? ;)

By the way, did you know the blog celebrated its two-year birthday on October 3rd? Yep! The first post on Temptalia went up on October 3rd, 2006.

Happy weekend!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion (base), MAC Juxt eyeshadow (pastel green), Urban Decay Shakedown eyeshadow (gray-olive), Urban Decay Protest eyeshadow (olive green), MAC Humid eyeshadow (forest green), MAC Femme-fi eyeshadow (highlighter), DuWop Eye Intesifier (black), Presriptives Blue Grotto (teal-green), MAC Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: MAC Fleurry blush (soft peachy pink), MAC Sheerbronze Sheersheen Powder (bronze)
  • Lips: Thrills lipstick (metallic coral), Moonbathe lipglass (melon-pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Shakedown = Femme Noir; Protest = Sumptuous Olive; Fleurry = Foolish Me; Thrills = CB96; Moonbathe = Love Nectar

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Urban Decay Primer Potion all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner-to-middle lid, apply Juxt eyeshadow using the 239. Apply UD Shakedown eyeshadow to the middle of the lid, overlaying it with Juxt. Darken the outer lid using UD Protest eyeshadow and drag into crease using the 239. Use Juxt eyeshadow to soften the crease with the 239. Sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with DuWop Eye Intesifier overlaying it with Prescriptives Blue Grotto on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Fleurry using the 129, then highlight with Sheerbronze with the 187. Apply Thrills lipstick to lips, and then top with Moonbathe lipglass for color and shine.

  2. happy blog birthdayyyyyyyyyyy!!

    LOVE this green look………i always felt like green shadow would clash with my green eyes, but i may have to try now……..love the lips, too. i tried Thrills but it didn’t look too great on me, but i think i can recreate that with…..hmmm, i’ll have to think on it but something i have will work :)

  3. Beautiful as always!!

    I was just wondering, since you’ve been using Urban Decay Primer Potion as a base…have you had trouble blending your shadows over UDPP? I know a lot of people have said they’ve had trouble, but your looks have always been beautifully blended no matter what! I haven’t really invested much in an eyeshadow primer, but I’ve been thinking about taking the leap with UDPP.

    Christine you look unbelievably amazing! Happy birthday to the blog :)

    You do a lot of experiments with colour in your looks, but there are some combinations you do that are just PERFECT on you! This is one of them. The eye colour on your lower lash line is fantastic and much better than black in this look, and as as always, you rock the corals but this particular lip combination is stunning. Beautiful!
