First I want to acknowledge that this look isn’t remotely wearable for work at least not where I work. This is actually my third attempt at posting a look featuring these eye shadows. I’ve blocked the first one out and the second one looked incredibly similar to a look I previously posted. I had this idea in my head, but was only going to use Parisian Skies. Then I thought, screw it, let’s use both.
These two shades work very well together as neither color overpowers the other. Both shadows are nicely pigmented and blend wonderfully. I didn’t notice any fallout while using these shades. Unfortunately, Jealousy Wakes is sold out, but thankfully MAC will replenish its stock of this shade. No word yet on the timing though.

After applying Soft Ochre paint pot with a Sigma 239 brush, I packed on a shimmery cream colored INGLOT shade onto my lid using a Mac 239 brush. This shadow was applied from corner to corner up to my crease.
I then put Parisian Skies into the outer two-thirds of my crease using a Louse Young LY38B brush. I kept the color darker at the outer corner and blended over. This brush is a natural haired, narrow, fluffy brush. The bristles are as long as a Mac 217, but tapered to point. If you don’t have anything similar, use a pencil brush. It will be more difficult to control the crease color if a bigger brush is used.
I wiped the LY38B clean and picked up Jealousy Wakes and started this green shade about mid-way through and blended the shade into the blue and to the inner corner. With the remaining color left on the brush I soft blended the crease colors into the cream shade on my lid.
With a Mac 217, I used a matte skin tone shade on my brow bone, which covered up the rest of the paint pot and softly blended out the upper edge of the crease colors.
