Green, Teal and Olive + Glitter makeup look

Holy dog ass batman! This look was so perfect! Then the NYX glitter cream totally made it crease. :-(  So even though it creased like mad, I'm posting the look anyway. So I won't be using the NYX glitter cream on my upper lids again. It worked really well on the inner lower corner though. Will try above the crease next time and maybe on top of liner. You never know how something will turn out until you do it! Now I know...
The eyeshadow I'm using is a brand that was selling on eBay but died a couple years ago, I think. These are totally repackaged pigments. I bought these MANY years ago before I was aware of such a thing. But I still love the colours. :-)
I made zee feather clip and check out that peach fuzz! Flash from cameras are evil with fuzziness. Makes it look so much worse! Yeah I'mah herry beast woman! Hee hee.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy (applied all around the eye rubbing in gently with ring finger)

  1. The fascinator in your hair is gorgeous :-)

  2. I love that greenish gold on the lower lashline. I know what you mean about the glitter cream. Does it to me too, which sucks cause it's sooo pretty. That gloss if gorgeous! Simple but it makes your lips look great. That clip is so cute!

  3. Beautiful!
    And I just love that feather clip, looks awesome!

  4. I love the clip, the earrings, the smoky teal. HOT!

  5. This look is perfect with the peacock clip!

  6. The looks is beautiful! And so is the feather clip :)

  7. Gorgeous! And I loooove that clip!

  8. That's the downside to the NYX glitter creams. They are great when they work, but immediately slip around. I had to use a fixative (Model in a Bottle) and some powder to keep them from sliding but they still did....I think your method of glitters only (without the cream base) is best. I love the feather/bang thing going here- it's so speakeasy!

  9. It is a forest nymph look and if that glitter would have behaved... >:(

    The earrings, lovely. The headband, lovely. Total look--HOT!

  10. Beautiful! But green is my favorite color, so I'm a little biased!

  11. I love the feather hair clip!

  12. Is the NYX glitter cream in a bottle, or in a palette of 5? That sucks that it made the look crease but I still think it's really pretty :) especially the lower lashline and waterline

  13. if this is the makeup you had on the other night, i could see it in the dark when you handed me my glasses!! also, i had a feeling that glitter cream would crease! i used a loreal eyeshadow cream ONCE when i was in 6th grade and decided to never use anything remotely creamy on my eyes again =(

  14. i love the colour combo and I adore the hairpiece :)

  15. Looks great as usual! Question: How long does it take you to apply your makeup on daily? Also, what do you use on your brows?

  16. This is so pretty. I'm loving greens on my eyes at the moment.
    Thank you for such a thorough post :)

  17. So pretty! I really need to get myself more glitter!
