Hello! I'm back again with a pretty little green look I did for Saint Patrick's Day!
I've always had a soft spot for greens; back when I first started experimenting more with makeup as an older teen, green was the first color I felt comfortable wearing in public. I kept it subtle, usually in the form of a cheap green eyeliner or tiny tube of cream shadow, courtesy of oldschool Wet N' Wild or NYC. For some reason I've always considered green to be almost a neutral, maybe because it's the color of grass and leaves.. it seemed earthy and natural.
Anyway, I really love how this look turned out; in fact I was almost giddy! Please keep reading for more info and don't forget to click the pics! :)

|Maximize this pic and look closely in my pupil... see anything creepy? O_o|
|I didn't go out that night so I only did one eye :)|
I've been wanting to do this look for a few weeks; I discovered how good these colors looked together while picking which makeups to pack for vacation, and then I got sick ON vacation so I couldn't do it sooner. It turned out so well that I want to recreate it as a full-face look, maybe with a peachy lip or something. I've also been asked for a tutorial so that will probably be in the works as well; maybe even a video tutorial? :O
