Green for Brown Eyes

Monday, January 24, 2011

I always love an excuse to dress up! Then when you add in using a new eyeshadow it's even better. I purchased Oomph (Mickey Contractor) from the MAC in Times Square over MLK Weekend. That collection was a little harder for me to get my hands on because it was only being sold in store at MAC's top 20 (I think?) stores in the United States....and apparently the Georgetown Location is not one of them. Luckily NY is and I was able to swatch things for myself and assuage my deep need for a green to compliment my eyes and skintone. Oomph is a blackened green that can be built up for true intensity, though here I packed it on top of one of MAC's Greasepaint sticks. 

I picked this look after seeing MissChievous's latest video on YouTube, where she took inspiration from London to create this beautiful, smokey, modern eye. Hope you like the way it looks here!

P.S. - I'm unfortunately still taking photos with my broken camera so if the colors don't look quite right I apologize now! At least you get the general idea :)
