Eyes: Indianwood paint pot (gold tinted cream shadow), Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow (frosty light gold with green sheen), Tectonic mineralize shadow (yellow green), Velvet Moss eyeshadow (velvet olive green), Humid eyeshadow (deep green), White Tie eyeshadow (white-gold highlighter), Graphblack technakohl (black kohl liner), and black mascara.
Face: If you’d like to compliment the eyes, use Springsheen blush (warm coral) on apples of cheeks with Taupe blush to contour.
Lips: For matching lips, try Tiger Tiger lipstick with Apex 3D glass.

    I love that you put the actual color of the shadow next to each name! It makes it easier to sub colors that MAC stores are out of or have discontinued with similar colors.

    P.S. I LOVE THIS LOOK AND ALL THE OTHERS! This is my new favorite site and I look forward to your new looks! Thanks!!!

    • Hey Donna!

      Maybe I will do that in the future, or at least if I have the time to on that particular day :)

      Thank you! I hope we continue to be your favorite!

    What could be good substitutes for Velvet Moss and Tectonic e/s found in the permanent line? I have other greens like swimming, sumptuous olive, etc and I just wanna know if I can use them to achieve this look as well? Also, did you use the Indianwood as base for the e/s? And is this your only use for the paint pots (as only e/s base)?
    And thanks for showing the entire look! I now know that coral lipsticks go well with green e/s…I have the mac lipstick in Alibi that I think will go well with this look.

    • Velvet Moss is part of the permanent line! Tectonic is actually quite similar to Velvet Moss, just with shimmer ;) You could try Sumptuous Olive instead of Tectonic, actually. I did use Indianwood as a base for this look, and I probably will only use paint pots for liner or bases. But you can use them as cream eyeshadows as well!

      You’re right – corals are absolutely GREAT with greens!

  4. lovin’ the green eyes!!! fabulous, darling :)

    Thanks

    Christine this is a beautiful look, I understand you posted it a few years ago now but could you redo this look with products that are in the permeant collection because I have never bought MAC and this look makes me want to. If I could see a look that possible to make I will run out and buy my first MAC product. Thank you so much!

    • Hi M,

      I’d suggest using this:

      Lid: Goldmine
      Crease: Sumptuous Olive
      Crease: Humid (just a touch!)
      Brow: Goldmine and Nylon sheered out

        Sound beautiful! Do you think with my light hazel eyes and light yellow undertoned I can pull it off?

        • Oh yes, I definitely think you can! I have green-brown (hazel) eyes and I’m yellow toned, too, and these colors rock :)

          • M

            Awesome. One last question. would the colors you mentioned look the same as your look? Kinda seems that they will be darker for some reason.

            • I think they will look very similar. Sumptuous Olive and Humid are darker, but if you use them lightly (I’d just recommend going lighter at first, then intensifying as you desire), I think they’ll work spot on. You may even find that Swimming + Sumptuous Olive will work better (gives you a greener look).

    I’m looking for a more golden with a tad of green look I do not think I pull off green very well.

    Coolness thanks for the tips.
