EOTD: So it’s grey not green?

These past few days have been terribly terribly hot. DX If only I can not go out in mornings! But there’s work. =_= Anyway, last night I saw in the root folder of one of my external drives a photo of Emily Browning:

I remember saving this because of her pretty shimmery eye makeup which looks to be pale emerald green. Since I’m going out today, I thought of attempting to copy it. I have a similar shade in one of my Estee Lauder palettes so I took that out for this. 🙂

Here are the shades and products I used:

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
  • Estee Lauder E/S Amazing Grey (lid except inner corner and lower lashline)
  • Estee Lauder E/S Tempting Mocha (half of lid to inner corner)
  • Polished Platinum (crease)
  • Estee Lauder E/S Pink Flash (brow bone)
  • Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony
  • Clinique High Impact Mascara
  • Estee Lauder More Than Mascara

Pigmentation with all the EL eyeshadows I have are sheer. So, as expected, my eye makeup is less bright and shimmery. Also, the primary eyeshadow I used for this is nearly similar to Emily’s, but when I read its name it’s… Amazing Grey? Maybe the shade is really green, but only muted that’s why it has become grey. *confuzzled* The longer I stare at my palette and the picture, it’s beginning to look so. Err…

I do hope it does look gray or emerald green on your screens because it looks either irl. On the monitor I am using now, it looks purple. ^^;;;
