Dramatic Emerald Eyes

So you may have gathered that I am loving bold coloured makeup looks this summer, which is why I thought I'd dig out my quite recently purchased Nars eyeshadow duo in Misfit and take it for a spin.
I'm not going out anywhere today so I was just experimenting, and what I came up with is I think a great bold evening look.
First off, heres the gorgeous Misfit duo:

The lighter colour is a lovely nude with TINY flecks of glitter and the Emerald-y colour is really unique, it's a mixure of teal and emerald and also has flecks of glitter.

I realise this look may not be to everyones taste because it is quite bold, but I was just experimenting :)

Products used:
Mac studio sculpt foundation- NW15, Bourjois Delice de soleil bronzer- light/medium, Maybelline dream touch blush-apricot
Eyes: Illamasqua brow cake-thunder, Mac prep+prime eye-light, Nars Misfit duo, Mac Nylon (highlight), Mac eye kohl-smoulder, Maybelline one by one volum' express mascara
Lips: Sleek lipstick- Peaches n cream

  3. Oh wow! You look stunning! That green works so well with your eyes and I love how you've made it smoky. I'm quite jealous of your lid space, you can get so much colour on lol. Have you seen the recent posts I've done with the Sleek palette I won from your giveaway? I am going to post some more in future too :)

  4. Thanks alot girls!
    @Jennifer haha thanks, my lids always annoy me though because theres a big line running through them, like a wrinkle or something lol :S ooh yeh i saw a couple, I think you posted them while I was on holiday so I'll go check them out now x

  5. I love this look - fantastic with your hair and eye color! Not sure it would flatter my brown eyes though :/ oh well!
