Humid + Contrast = Love

Yay, a make up post!

This evening me and the hubs went to the cinema to watch 'The rise of the planet of the apes' which was amazing btw. I whipped out my trusty Mac palette and immediately opted for 'Humid' eyeshadow, a striking green as it's one of my favourite colours.


PRODUCTS USED ON EYES:

All Mac eyeshadows: 'Humid' all over the lid, 'Contrast' in the crease & outer corner, 'Vellum' on inner corners, and 'Brule' to highlight.

Nars smudge proof e/s base + Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in 'Zero' on waterline and smudged onto upper lash line + Max Factor false lash effect fusion mascara.


I LOVE the effect, it cheered me up and made a nice difference to some of the more 'boring' colours I wear. I love the green combined with the navy and the beautiful 'sheen' finish it gives off. I need to wear these colours more often!




OTHER PRODUCTS USED:



In case you were wondering how huge I am at 36 weeks.....


All smiles!


Do you wear green eyeshadow often? How do you make it work?

I love the combo of green and navy, very unusual but it works! I'm a huge fan of green too, but find myself falling into the usual brown/taupe rut and have to push myself to be more colourful on the eyes.

You look gorgeous, as always, best looking pregnant person I've seen! Not long now, you must be so excited.

I generally fall into the neutral e/s rut and every time I go for greens I wonder why I don't go for them more often! My favourite green is MAC steamy :) You look so,so pretty I was a puffy mess at 9 months lol :) xxx

I don't wear green much. I tend to wear browns, blues, purples and greys when I do bold eyes because those colors are the ones that either emphasize the light brown in my eyes (purple, blue, brown mixed with copper) or grey (brown, grey, some blues). I haven't tried many greens!

You look so pretty! I love that color on you!

I love green eyeshadows! I usually pair it with browns, golds and taupey shades. =) LOVE!

Alpha Blonde said...

Aww you are still so little! When I wear green I try to wear a very khaki green, for some reason if it's too green it gives me that sleepy look...I love these colors on you!

Modest Mademoiselle said...

I love how the two colours blend! Glad to see you're still updating regurlary even if baby is on the way soon! :) xxx

you look gorgeous! Love the green and blue combo. Looks stunning with your hair colour. I tend to always fall into the "play it safe" with neutrals but i love green with goldy tones too.
You're looking so healthy and stunning, love your bump! Your skin is looking really fresh too and smooth too :)

So gorgeous, as usual. Humid looks fab, I've never fancied it before but can see how it is one of youtr favourites. Also, you shouldn't be allowed to look so blinking fab when you're about to give birth. So unfair ;) xxx
