Green Orchid Tutorial

Shadow Colors Used:
- Lime Green
- Wine/Plum
- Brown
- Creamy White (brow bone)

I don't care WHO you are or what eye color you have DO THIS TUTORIAL!!!!!!! I want to hear from you on this one because it is SO my fav now!!!!! I have NEVER worn a look two days in a row and this one is going on THREE. I LOOOOOVE IT!!!!!! =) The video just doesn't even do it justice. You don't have to use all MAC products but the color combo really is the key. SO pretty!!!


So the voice over cut me off right before I gave a vital detail to the look. On the brow bone all over is a touch of Vanilla but right at the arch use a couple pats of a white color to give it a pop!!! =) I used White Avalanche by MAC.

awesome look. I have a feeling I would love it even more in person.

Where do I get a good deal on sponge brushes?

I'd love a tutorial on your "quick look". I'm assuming you have one. Ya know, I have to hurry today so here is my default... I love all of these looks but don't always have the time.

You bet and welcome!!!!! I would for SURE recommend blues, silvers, and peaches. make sure they are vivid colors. If you look in Kevin's book Making Faces, he has a look that is an homage to Billie Holiday and I have ALWAYS wanted to do makeup like this on someone. If you did it and sent pictures I could live vicariously through you since I have always wanted to do it to myself too =). I will do some tutorials for you specifically on shadows that would make your eyes CRAZY amazing!!!!!

Do you think if I substitute bitter for juxt i would get a good result? I dont know if i can pull of the lime green but i could see myself wearing juxt more often.
