I wanted to do some color, but since I was going to hang out with my relatives, I didn’t want to go full-out with the color. I thought a more neutral lid with color in the crease would give me the best of both worlds!

Happy Friday! Weekend’s almost here :) Any exciting plans?

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (creamy neutral base), Dreammaker eyeshadow (pastel white-gold), Mink & Sable eyeshadow (olive green), Humid eyeshadow (forest green), Ricepaper eyeshadow (neutral highlighter), Graphblack technakohl (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Nuance mineralize blush (soft peach)
  • Lips: High 90s slimshine (coral-pink), Nymphette lipglass (sheer gold-pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Dreammaker = Nylon; Mink & Sable = Sumptuous Olive; Nuance = Peachykeen; High 90s = Skew

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the lid, apply Dreammaker using the 239. Darken the outer lid using Mink & Sable eyeshadow and drag into crease using the 239. Intensify the crease with Humid eyeshadow with the 239. Sweep Ricepaper eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Nuance using the 129. Apply High 90s slimshine to lips, and then top with Nymphette lipglass for color and shine.

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 don’t think I’ve done three days of makeup in quite awhile! For some reason, the upper “liner” is 1) not very prominent, 2) looks separated from my lash line even though when I applied, it looked fine. Don’t you hate when you’re all good to go, then you upload photos, and you’re like, “Oh, oops!” I had a totally different vision for the upper liner (I wanted something dark but glimmering with gold flecks), so maybe it was all the stuff I did to it that made it kind of wonky in the end, LOL.

Thanks for all the encouragement, I always appreciate it :) It really does inspire me!

I used Emerald Green pigment all over lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner crease, Wondergrass eyeshadow on lid, Humid eyeshadow on middle of lid, Carbon eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Goldmine eyeshadow above crease, Golden Lemon pigment dusted all over lid (then gently swished over the lid, going back and intensifying the original colors of Wondergrass & Humid), Nylon eyeshadow on brow bone to highlight, Femme Noir eyeshadow along upper lash line, Blitzed glitter liner along upper lash line, Carbon eyeshadow along upper lash line, Feline kohl power on lower waterline/lash line, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner tearduct and inner lower lash line, Humid eyeshadow on outer lower lash line, and Plushblack plushlash mascara on lashes (top and bottom). I wore Other Worldly blush with Daisydust beauty powder on cheeks. I had Brew lipstick with Pink Grapefruit lipglass dusted with Reflects Bronze glitter on lips.
