Smokey Shimmery Greens

Hi all!

Here was my look for today, I had a very long day at work (as per usual), but my makeup held up nicely :)

I used:
Bare Necessity Indelible Cream Shadow as base all over lid
Pure Luxe Pandora (this is a shimmery, deep green which I'm pretty certain can be found almost anywhere, as it's probably a repackaged color but nonetheless lovely) patted onto lid with flat shader brush
Clinique mid tone matte brown (from Butter Pecan Duo)  in crease to create depth, and serve as blender color... applied with MAC 224
NYX black in outer V with MAC 217, and along lower lashline with MAC 219
Clinique matte off white (from Butter Pecan duo) on brow bone with large shader brush
MAC Gorgeous Gold (yellowy gold with green duochrome) on inner corners with soft pencil brush
Ben Nye Cake liner with Aromaleigh Sealant
Cover Girl Lashblast in black
Prestige waterproof liner in black on waterlines

Cheeks are Benefit Coralista
Lips are Loreal Colorstay in Smooth Nude

This look is pretty much identical to a tutorial I did a while back on YouTube, with a few substitutions.  Being that I'm feeling loopy and did a horrible job of describing the steps, you can watch the tutorial HERE :)
