You know that feeling you get when you do a look, and you just LOVE it? I totally had that yesterday. Admittedly, I haven’t really loved, loved, loved anything I have done in awhile. Gilded Green is a pretty unique pigment, because I couldn’t think of a great permanent dupe for it. Makes me think I might need to reconsider the CF pigments, but I’ll probably look for samples instead of buying them in full size.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this look as much as I did :)

I used Gilded Green pigment (LE) on lid, Aquavert eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Wondergrass eyeshadow (LE) on middle of lid, Newly Minted eyeshadow on outer lid, Humid eyeshadow on outer lid/crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, Shade fluidline on upper lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Suncentered Color Forms Powder (LE) on cheeks. I had Cursty lipstick (LE) with Nymphette lipglass on my lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available – may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Gilded Green = Emerald Green + Frost + (a dash of) Teal; Aquavert = Surreal; Wondergrass = Bio Green; Suncentered = Cantaloupe; Curtsy = Jubilee

    I’m with you Christine..it rocks!! i lovve greens because i have green eyes, so it looks like Gilded Green is going on my wish list! and i think i love it when you line the top lashes, too!

  3. Elle

    I think this may be my favorite green look on you. I also love seeing what you do with the looks because your skintone is similar to mine, so it makes it easy for me to see what will look good on me. Is there anything you *can’t* pull off? I don’t think so! Gorgeous!

  4. TR

    Wow. You look so pretty in greens. :) Love this color.

  5. Your eyes look huge! Much bigger than normal. I think it’s the mascara.

  6. Kristy

    Amazing!!!!! I bought gilded green too and I adore it!! I need to play around with it some more..so thanks for the inspiration!!!

  7. Kelly

    I know I’ve said this before but green is the best color on you by far!!!

  8. Ariele

    This is, by far, my favourite look I’ve seen you do in quite some time! Not sure if its just because you look AWESOME in greens/corals, but this is absolutely stunning. Greens can seem so overdone, but this looks so soft on you, especially with the lips & cheeks. I’m trying to wait patiently for my Gilded Green & Sun Centered to come in the mail tomorrow, but this look isn’t making it easy! Hehe :)

  9. Nell

    Really amazing!
    You made me order Suncentered, grrr! ;)

  10. Kristen Elisabeth

    I was going to blow off buying the pigments from this collection, but you’ve shown a convincing arguement for me to at least buy a sample of Gilded Green.

  19. LaEisha

    That green really brings out your brown eyes. You look gorgegous.

  20. viv

    LOVE IT!!!! I think I’m gonna try this look out tomorrow. I can’t tell you how much your looks have inspired me and changed the way I do my makeup today. Thank you!

  25. Danielle

    WOW THIS LOOKS SOO HOT!!! I LOVE IT!!! Green is a really good color for you!!! AMAZING!!!!

  26. I am so inspired by this intense green look! In fact, it is such a coincidence, I also used Glided Green p/g today, and I posted my look here, it is much lighter, and I left my lower lids naked.

  27. natasha

    this is a lovely green on you chris!

    would you akin it with gulf stream? i’m deciding bet buying newly minted and gulf stream. i’m not brave enuf (and too kluzy) to try piggies :(

    • Thanks, Natasha!

      No, not really. Gulf Stream is a bright pop of teal, IMO. It’s kind of like Warm Chill or Aquavert (Warm Chill hardly gave me any color, though).

  28. glided green is completely different from gulf stream…. which is more aqua.

  29. Lish

    your rockin that green!!! i think green is your color!

  30. Avatar of Pippa Calico

    WOW! The eyeliner on your upper lid looks absolutely stunning! I agreed with you before, about just needing it on the bottom, but with this look it really is beautiful!

  31. gio
