EOTD: Gold 'n' green

Last month a number of bloggers posted some wonderful EOTD looks using variations of green.  It inspired me to step outside my personal comfort zone of pink, beige and purple and create a look a bit more dramatic than I'd normally wear. 

For this look I used:
  • Face of Australia primer (matte) blended over the lids
  • Excel - GL01 (gold) on inner corners
  • MAC - Sumptuous Olive (golden olive) on lids
  • Red Earth - After Eight (forest green) blended in crease and outer V
  • MAC Duck Powerpoint eye pencil on outer upper lash line
  • Christian Dior Diorshow mascara (black) on upper lashes only

For added reference on the colours used here are the eyeshadows in their pans and swatched in daylight.  I bought the gold Excel eyeshadow at a drugstore in Tokyo back in 2008:

Excel GL01, MAC Sumptuous Olive, Red Earth After Eight

Until next time.

  1. Well, this goes just perfect with your eyes, very pretty and not too dramatic imo :)

  2. LOVE this look! Such pretty colours. They really bring out your green eyes

  3. this doesn't look dramatic at all. and it brings out your green eyes. pretty!

  4. Seriously - why was everyone on a green kick? I feel like I missed a memo.

    I think this looks so beautiful with your green/hazel eyes! You should wear it boldly more often. :)

  5. This is extremely gorgeous! You should do more EOTDs as you're looks are better than 90% I've seen on here :)

  6. @hermetic - Thank you :) I think the pictures soften the look because it was a lot more vivid IRL.

    @Haute_Style - Thanks! I broke the colour rules - you know how you're never supposed to match the shadow to your eye colour but it actually worked!

    @Kristy - Thank you xoxo

    @prettymom - Green against green shouldn't really work but it seems it did!

    @Liz - I'm the one who missed the memo! A lot of girls wore green to promote depression awareness in October but unfortunately I was too slow off the mark :-p Thanks for the compliment BTW.

    @Vintage Makeup - You're embarrassing me again (in the nicest possible way xxx) I'd love to post more EOTD's. I just need to get inspired I guess cos I usually stick to the same tried and true looks during the week.

  7. Loving it! really sets of your eye colour.

  8. @Grace - Thank you! The green was a lot more wearable than I expected. xoxo

  9. @SilhouetteScreams - Thankyou, that's a great compliment xoxo
