'Metallic Grass Cut-Crease' Look
This look was inspired by the lovely and talented Nireyna on Live Journal. Here's the inspiration - HERE. It is a pretty intense cut-crease look and is not meant for everyday wear. I had so much fun doing this...wish I had more free time to do these intense looks.
I started off with NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (matte beige) all over my lid and on my brow bone as my primary base. Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush

For the crease I started with Inglot #58 Eyeshadow (matte vibrant green). Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush
