SATIN TAUPE (FROST)

Satin Taupe is absolutely gorgeous and because it has purple undertones, it really makes green eyes stand out!


SATELLITE DREAMS (VELUXE PEARL)

Satellite Dreams is a midtone purple with bluish purple shimmer. This shadow looks stunning on green eyes! I love to wear it with my next recommendation...





NOCTURNELLE (FROST)

Nocturnelle is a "pinked up chrome purple" according to MAC. I would call it a deep red based purple. This is a must have and pairs beautifully with Satin Taupe and Satellite Dreams.

BRONZE (FROST)

Like I've said before, MAC's Bronze is the most perfect true bronze shade EVER made. The warmth in this color makes it extremely flattering on green eyes.

SUMPTUOUS OLIVE (VELUXE PEARL)

I absolutely LOVE this color for green eyes! When applied it looks like a bronzy olive green, and it is a fun shadow to mix in with neutral looks.

HUMID (FROST)

No surprise here... I recommend Humid to everyone, but especially if you have green eyes. This is one of the best MAC eyeshadows hands down. Some say people with green eyes shouldn't wear green shadows... Rules are made to be broken, and Humid is the perfect example!

CLUB (SATIN)

For a full review on Club, click here
The reddish brown base in club works wonders on green eyes, and don't even get me started on the teal duochrome!!


SABLE (FROST)

Sable is a bronzy, plummy, brown. It is gorgeous all over the lid, and can be worn by itself.

EMBARK (MATTE)

Embark is a matte red based brown that looks great with green eyes!

SKETCH (SATIN)

Sketch is a very popular wine/burgundy color that is amazing as a crease color!

MAC: BRIGHT PURPLE LOOK






Purple is one of the few colors that looks great with ANY eye color! You will want to pick a purple in accordance with the undertones of your skin. If you are cool toned, you will look best in blue based purples, while a warmer skin will pair nicely with a more red based purple.

MAC: EASY PURPLE DAYTIME LOOK

Sugar Plum Inspired Daytime Look






Without Liquid Liner






 With Liquid Liner
 
This is an easy and wearable purple eye, that is appropriate for work or school. The key to making most looks daytime appropriate is using a light hand and making sure to BLEND, BLEND, BLEND!! My favorite brush to use is the MAC 217. If you don't have the 217 just use any dome shaped blending brush. A less expensive brush version is the Sonia Kashuk blending brush, which can be found at any target.
 
Shadows used:

MAC Satin Taupe (metallic purpley taupe): Inner two-thirds of lid to crease

MAC Nocturnelle (dark purple with shimmer): Outer third of lid to crease, and line bottom lashes

MAC Kid (matte light brown -- two shades darker than yor skintone): Blend crease and transition

MAC Vanilla (matte off white): Highlight

MAC Vex (multi-color shimmer): Inner corner

MAC Carbon (matte black): Line top lashes




You don't have to purchase these shadows necessarily... Just use something you have that is similar in color and finish.


In the first picture I used a matte black eyeshadow (Carbon) on a small angled brush (MAC 208) to line my eye and create a small wing... You can stop there for a more natural look, or you can use the shadow as a guideline when creating your winged eyeliner using liquid or gel liner. I like to put on one light coat of mascara before using liquid or gel liner because it keeps my lashes out of the way.

I hope this was helpful and I will be experimenting with different lighting to take the best pictures possible for future looks.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
