Get This Look:

I used two different green cream shadows as a base, just to intensify the color for the pictures.  This looks like a fairly tame eye… if you’re not afraid of color.  Suffice it to say I was a bit upset when I took a look at the picture (after I had removed my makeup) and saw how much of the vibrancy I had lost.  To the naked eye, I actually thought it was too bold…ha!  One day, I will figure out lighting.

The Shiseido cream shadow is a soft apple green, which I put on the inner two thirds of my lid with a synthetic lid brush.  I used the other side of that brush and put the darker green (Maybelline) onto the outer third.  Using a flat shader brush, I placed the forth shade on my lid.  Using the other side of that brush, I placed the darkest shade onto my outer corner and ran it under my lash line.  I went back and forth between the two shades to blend them together.

I blended out the edges using a shader brush.  With a Louse Young LY38A, I blended a warm matte brown into my crease.   I put the golden shimmering brown shade (#3) on the inner corner and under my lash line (inner two thirds).  I placed the matte white shade under my brow bone.
