FOTD: Greens and Turqoise (and MAC Phloof & Dazzleglass Rags to Riches)

The other morning, while putting on my makeup, I realized I haven't worn any color in a while, so I thought I'd play around with some greens and turquoises to add some *pop* to my look. Usually in the spring/summer I go over the top with really colorful eyeshadow, but not this year for some reason.

To create the look below, I dug around in my eyeshadows and found a few shades I had not touched in a while, including some Jesse's Girl eye dusts (which I absolutely love for the price), my Bare Escentuals Peacock Glimmer, and the dark brown eyeshadow Lucky Tom from the MAC Hello Kitty Lucky Tom palette. To finish off the look I used my new MAC Dazzleglass in Rags to Riches, which is a beautiful sheer baby pink with sparkles.


I have to say, I'm kind of partial to this look! I really like that it's relatively natural as far as colored eyeshadows go, but just adds a hint of turquoise and green to the eyelids so that it's not a boring look. I'll have to remember this one!
