Wearing the new MAC A Fantasy of Flowers collection on my eyes, cheeks and lips
It’s raining here today, which normally would leave me feeling rather blah (I get the blues when the sun goes away), but today? Not so much.
First, it’s been a dry winter, and we need the rain. Second, the construction guys can’t work when it’s wet…so it’s been gloriously quiet this afternoon.
All I can hear are raindrops on my window, which is a very soothing sound.
Funny thing is, when it’s sunny outside and the workmen are working (we’re having our siding repaired), I put on my biggest headphones and listen to YouTube videos of ambient rain to drown out the noise, haha! Oh, the irony…
So, because today is kind of cold and gray, I felt like doing something a little springy and colorful. I went with a bright green cat eye with golden coral cheeks and a pink lip using makeup from the new MAC A Fantasy of Flowers collection.
If you ever feel like wearing bright green liner or shadow but aren’t quite sure what to do with it and don’t want anything too over the top, try a green cat eye.
No, seriously. Dude, you can do it!
Sassy Moss Fluidline (bright green on my upper lash lines and the inner part of my lower lash lines), Chartreuse Bouquet Pigment (lower lash lines), Lily White Pigment (inner corners) and the gold shade from In the Meadow Mineralize Eye Shadow quad all over my lids
I like this eye look because there’s a bright pop of color and minimal blending, and sometimes when I’m even lazier than I was today, I’ll skip everything else and just do a single swipe of green on my upper lash lines instead.
With bright green liner like this, I’ll usually tightline my upper lashes with a black liner or eyeshadow (here I’m using MAC’s Carbon Eye Shadow) to give more depth to my eyes and create the illusion of thicker lashes (since mine are naturally wimpy).
Just adds a little somethin’ somethin’…
The green liner I’m wearing here is MAC’s new Sassy Moss from A Fantasy of Flowers, by the way, and woo-hoo! — do I feel like a sassy-pants when I wear it.
It’s just so vibrant, and all it takes is a couple layers. Very cool. In a way, it reminds me of one of my old-school favorite MAC Fluidlines, Jadeye, but less teal and more green. Similar pop on the skin.
