Look - Make Up For Ever: Chatreuse Greens

Here’s a green-themed look using Make Up For Ever eyeshadows! 🙂 I deliberatedly used MAC Soft Ochre paint pot as a base to show that bright colors can be brought down a notch by using a more neutralizing base, like Soft Ochre. Happy holiday weekend!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: MAC Soft Ochre paint pot (neutral base), Make Up For Ever #171 Eyeshadow (shimmery chatreuse), Make Up For Ever #91 Eyeshadow (matte bright medium green), Make Up For Ever #53 Eyeshadow (shimmery forest green), Make Up For Ever #101 Eyeshadow (sheer, yellow-gold shimmer), Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes 12L (deep teal-green), Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Lash Mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Make Up For Ever #5 Blush (matte coral-orange), Make Up For Ever #153 Blush (shimmery peachy-gold)
  • Lips: YSL Peach Passion Rouge Volupte Lipstick (peachy-coral), MAC Liberated lipglass (pale gold-yellow)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 226 (fluffy crease brush), 219 (pointed crease brush), 214 (smudge brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 116 (dense blush brush), 165 (highlighting brush)

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply MAC Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, pack #171 eyeshadow on using the 239. On the outer lid and crease, apply #91 eyeshadow with the 226. Increase intensity by packing on more of #75 eyeshadow with the 239. Darken crease with #53 eyeshadow using the 219, and then blend out with the 226. Sweep #101 eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight with the 217. Smudge lower lash line with #171 eyeshadow with the 214 brush, pressing into lower lashes. Finish with 12L Aqua Eyes on on the lower lash line using the 208. Apply Aqua Smoky Lash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with #5 Blush using the 129, then highlight with #153 with the 165. Apply YSL Peach Passion Rouge Volupte lipstick to lips, and then top with MAC Liberated lipglass for color and shine.

The green looks great on you! I may have to make the switch away from MAC. I only own one MUFE and its #75…I really like the “wearability” of the MUFE..or so it looks that way in your pictures!!

The pigmentation of these shadows are amazing! How do you like them Christine? I prefer MUFE Mattes over MAC mattes (total rubbish lol)

Thanks, Natalie! I like a lot of MAC mattes, actually, LOL! I like both. I think a good MUFE shadow = good MAC shadow. I think MAC has more inconsistencies amongst their line of eyeshadows, though. Though MAC does way better frosts/shimmers than MUFE, IMO.

Thanks Christine! I know it is ME – I have a trouble blending MAC mattes, especially Carbon! I love matte2 though. MUFE mattes are really soft and velvety, just like matte2 😀

I must say I love all your MUFE looks. I’m so jealous that Peach Passion works so great on you. I tried it on at the counter, and hello chalky. 🙁

Up close, the eyes looked so bright, *almost* OTT, but then when I see the whole look put together, it’s just perfect! Also, I think the lips are beautiful! Our skin tone is similar (I think we’re both NC30) I will definitely have to hunt down Peach Passion… 😀

I’m liking the colors however I might have added a bit more definition in the crease with a neutral charcoal or something to even the look out a bit. Personally, I prefer Plushlash on your lashes a little more as well but I applaude you for taking great risks Christine and being so adaptable to different looks!

Thanks for the suggestion! One of the reasons I didn’t darken the crease any more is I didn’t have an appropriate MUFE color to do so, LOL!

I have to know, what camera do you use to take your LOTD pics?! The macro setting on whatever camera it is. . . is AMAZING!!

Beautiful look and gorgeous eyes!!
