This bright eye is meant for Freedom Friday.  If you want a bolder look, choose a brighter purple for the crease instead of brown.

I only have a few of Sugarpill’s pressed shadows, but I enjoy using them.  These matte (semi-matte) shadows blend like a dream.

Looking at the picture of the shadow swatches, the colors appear to be a weird combo.  I picked MUFE #30 to blend into the crease and outer V because I wanted to tone down the bright lid colors.  It also has enough red in it to compliment the green.  (A good dupe is Mac’s Brown Script though it has a bit more yellow/orange undertone.)

Sugarpill’s Midori was applied to the inner two-thirds of the lid and blended into Afterparty for the outer two-thirds.  These colors are very pigmented and can easily look intense if applied with a heavy hand.

The outer V was deepened by mixing Mac’s Shadow Lady and Indian Ink.  You don’t need both of these colors.  Any dark purple or plum would work.  I mixed these colors on a whim because I didn’t fully plan this eye out ahead of time.

Nars Etrusque was put into the corner of my eye and blended up lightly.
