MAC Fresh Green Mix Look
Here's a look featuring my favorite green mineral eyeshadow from MAC, Fresh Green Mix from the Electroflash collection. I loved each and every look I come up with using this.
I also used Henna, Greensmoke, and Humid for this look.
I used DreamWorld Mineral foundation for this look. I love this brand of mineral makeup. As I stated in my Comprehensive Review of Mineral Foundations I've Tried, it gives a radiant complexion because it is not entirely matte, but not shimmery either. It de-flats one's skintone and makes it look bright, and DreamWorld has awesome finishing powders (creme toppings and whipped cocoons) that will suit every skin type. As you can see in my looks, I use DreamWorld's finishing powders quite often.
Here's a step-by-step. All products MAC unless otherwise provided.
Apply Bare Canvas paint all over lid, brows, and lower lashline. Smooth product on the lid with finger. Using a fluffy shader brush, apply Greenstroke paint pot on lid. Using Loew Cornell Maxine's Mop 3/8" or the 239 brush (stiff shader brush), apply solid side of Fresh Green Mix foiled (using Charged Water) on lid.
Using another stiff shader brush (I used Sonia Kashuk's small eyeshadow brush), apply the melange side of Fresh Green Mix on the crease, going down to the outer lid.
Using the 224 brush, apply Henna on the lid.
Using the Sonia Kashuk blender brush, apply Greensmoke on outer V and crease. Blend with the 224.
Using the Sonia Kashuk blender brush, apply Humid on the crease, then blend again using the 224.
Using the 227 brush, apply Vanilla pigment on the crease, and use Coastal Scents mini detail brush to apply Vanilla pigment on inner corners.
Using the Sonia Kashuk mini-detail brush, apply the solid side of Fresh Green Mix on inner to mid lower lashline, and Humid on outer lower lashline. Use Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero to tightline and on waterline. Apply Almay liquid liner in Black. Apply mascara.
