EOTD: Green and Black


Today I wanted to make a subtle green eye make up, since yesterday I saw this amazing swatch of a cheap eyeshadow. The shadow itself was beautiful, aqua green and very subtle (but with a primer it looked opaque).
So I decided that it's time to put on work make up, and use green.

I picked up my Coastal Scents 88 Matte palette (I'm falling in love with it, I have never been a huge fan of matte shades but they are so forgiving) and added a bit of green. A tiny bit. But what the heck, who am I to put on subtle make up? I mean..  if I'm not lazy and actually DO my make up, it should be BOLD or at least.. bolder than subtle.

So I packed on more color, added black in the crease (+ outer V) and thought I'm done. But I wasn't. I mean..  even if I love mattes (new love, right?) I had to add some shimmer in the corners of my eyes.

And then the finishing touch. Mascara...
I also did my eyebrows with the matte palette, because I was so sick of searching for the right shade for brows.

I like the result!

I used:

  • Bourjois glamour mini mascara (so cute!)
  • UDPP
  • Coastal Scents 88 Matte Palette
  • Coastal Scents 88 Shimmer Palette
The result:

After 6 hours... 

And I'm starting to like half pictures..

Enjoy your evening,


  1. Oh, this is very lovely! I should give my green e/s a go again as I neglect them too much lately. I've rediscovered browns, too. ;-)

  2. Mylanqolia: Yay! Thank you, I'm glad you found your love for greens again! ^^

    Andreja, Biba, Heather: Hvala! Thank you!
