Sassy Grass

This look features some of my favorite greens.   Some of the shadows were MAC Limited Edition, but they’ll come back around if you missed it.  Until then, use what you have or like better.

(NOTE:  There are some products I used just for this picture and not in my daily routine.  The main item being the liquid foundation.  I use a powder foundation (Everyday Minerals), but MUFE HD is great for pictures.  I rarely apply a cheek highlight when going to work because I fight oily skin all day, but don’t sleep on Albatross.  It is fantastic.)

Achieve this look:

After priming my eye, I apply Saddle in my crease and deepen it with a mix of Handwritten and Embark in the outer corner.  Tete-A-Tint is applied on my brow bone to my brow.  This color is a bit lighter than my skin tone and is used to blend out my crease color and tie in my brow highlight.  (A face powder can be used in its place).  Vanilla is patted on lightly below my arch.  (I’m not a big fan of screaming bright brow highlight.  Vanilla has been muted by sweeping the brush used to apply Tete-A-Tint over it.)

Bottle Green is used to define the Outer V with a pencil brush and blend over towards the center of the eye.  Humid is lightly swept over the center of the lid towards the outer edge with a blending brush.  Using Humid helps lighten up the green color between Bottle Green and Sassy Grass for a nice fade.  It also provides a shimmery finish for Sassy Grass, which is a matte shade.  Going Bananas is applied to the inner third of the lid and inner corner with a flat shader brush.  Sassy Grass is then blended between Going Bananas and Humid.
