Obligatory St Paddy's Day Green!

Though I didn't initially intend on the green, it is how it ended up.  I wanted to use Aromaleigh's Yael from the new Ignis Antiquita collection, and once I applied it slightly foiled to my lid- I knew that a matte green in the outer corners would contrast nicely.  The subtle green sparks in this warm gold shadow just cried out for some green, and I made it so.  My newest sample order from Aromaleigh contains some real beauties that I can't wait to use!

Mac Pro Longwear Concealer NW 20 under eyes
MAC Emphasize Sculpting Powder  to set concealer
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
NYX Taupe Blush  to contour
City Color Be Matte Blush  (from Ipsy) in Fresh Melon on cheeks
Maybelline Brow Pencil Dark Blonde and NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder  in blonde on brows
Estee Lauder Illuminating Powder Gelee in Heat Wave as cheek bone highlight

L'oreal Fairest Nude lipstick
NYX Smokey Look gloss

Coastal Scents Shadow Worx primer
Aromaleigh Yael applied with damp brush all over lid, to just above crease, then blended out and up with MAC 224 brush
NYX Taupe eyeshadow to blend out edges a bit more and transition
Sleek Ultra Matte V 2 Palette  matte green, to outer corners blended inward.  Along lower lashline as well.
Ben Nye Toast on brow bone
NYX Barely There  to tear duct area
Physician's Formula Eye Booster Liquid Liner on upper lashline
Rimmel Waterproof Kohl- Black on waterline
Cover Girl LashBlast Mascara 

Darn you Nikon for being so very HD, those stray brow hairs are not nearly that cray-cray in real life!
