Since St. Patrick’s day is around the corner I thought I would do a post devoted to my favorite eyeshadow color… GREEN! I typically wear neutrals, but if I am looking to mix things up I almost always reach for one of these. If you are familiar with my blog, many of these will not be a surprise to you, as they are on a lot of my “Top 10” lists. Please click to enlarge!

Humid is a cross between a hunter green and a forest green with shimmer. The great thing about this shadow is it looks amazing on the lid AND in the crease, which is rare for a frost, imo. My favorite, hands down!
A bronzy olive color with shimmer. I prefer this one on the lid, which warm matte browns in the crease. It has amazing texture and looks gorgeous on everyone!
Club is described as a red-brown with green pearl. It was my first MAC eyeshadow — so it’s near and dear to heart. Although this shadow is one of my favorites, it can be a little difficult to make it fully opaque on the lid… I recommend using it wet and/or a really good primer underneath. You just have to take your time and pack the color on… but it’s worth it!
Lucky Green a true chartruese with shimmer. Although I don’t use this as much as the others, it still has a special place in my heart. I typically wear it one of two ways: the inner 1/2 of the lid when doing a green eye, or a light sweep in the crease over a neutral, which helps to bring out my eyes.
