'Grassy Knolls' Look
When I fell in love with makeup it was not for the classic beauty enhancing reasons but rather for the artistic, creative potential it provided. I was never a great artist - drawing, painting or otherwise - but I feel that makeup allows me to use skills and talents I never knew I had. It's like discovering a long lost sibling! Who knew I could color and create like this??!!! It is quite freeing to say the least and that is why I love makeup! Now this look will take into my humble little makeup world.
I started off with Urban Decay Primer Potion all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (creamy beige) on the browbone and the crease as my primary base - Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush.
On the inner lid I applied Ben Nye #129 Gold Metallic Powder (metallic pure gold) with MAC Mixing Medium. MAC 242 Small Shader Brush
For the middle of the lid I used Inglot #43 Pure Pigment Eyeshadow (shimmery lime green). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush
Then on the outer lid and crease I applied MAC Sassy Grass Eyeshadow (matte grass green). Sonia Kashuk Large Crease Brush
