First, I know it's Tuesday and I'm predictably late with Makeup Monday. I hope the lack of alliteration doesn't detract from the post; I promise that I have lots of great excuses for not putting this up yesterday. Or, I fell asleep.
One of my first forays into the wonderful world of bright eyeshadow was with a beautiful shade of green from Milani (whose older shadows were amazing), and I was forever hooked. Green has since become the most popular color in my rather large makeup collection, though I can't remember the last time I gave them a proper spotlight. That was rectified immediately, upon my recent purchase of the Urban Decay Black Palette, which has a beautiful dark emerald that was surprisingly missing from my arsenal. This collection is hands down my favorite shadow palette to date: each color is highly pigmented and though they are all darkdarkdark, the duochrome is prominent enough to be unique. Considering that their regular eyeshadows are only .01 oz larger and cost $17 each, $36 for six shadows, eyeliner and a mini primer potion is a major bargain.
For this look, I only used the dark green in the palette, Libertine, and the primer potion. Though I listed UD's URB as the bright green shadow, I actually used UD's Vert, which is no longer available.
As you can see, I ended up bringing the bright green even further outward - it was looking a little too Taylor Momsen-ish without the added color.
