Now that the holidays are over, I feel more comfortable wearing reds with greens now that NOT everybody and their momma are doing it. =)
For this look, I could have used a duochrome eyeshadow such as Chameleon. Actually, I really had all intentions of using Chameleon, but then ... the shit hit the fan.
I know for a fact that many of us adore duochrome shadows. They be oh-so pretty, oh yesh, indeed. My personal fav is Sweetscents Chameleon (Mineralissima has a smilar colour called Illusion), followed closely by EDM eyeshadow in Shopping Spree.
The other day I got a huge urge to use Chameleon.
It was also the day when I decided to experiment with my dry lids to see if putting moisturizer under my primer would make the primer not dry my lids even more. An extra layer of supple goodness on the eyes didn't seem to interfere with primer upon application.
And then ...
... I went and applied my shadow. Holly veneral disease Batman.
It was a scene of the grimmest kind. My lovely shadow went on all blotchy and just generally fugly. I just decided to set the outer corners with a cranberry shade and then used a mint shadow in the center of the lids. If you look closely, you'll be able to see wonky texture - that's the bltochiness covered with shadow :D
I felt the final result was sooo pretty. I the added green liner on the waterline as well and set it with lid shade. I wear massive glasses, so it blotchiness doesn't even show in real life.
Now I totally want to wear this all the time. =)
I think I want to try pink in place of green, too. Imagine that, pink.
(I'm a anti-pink kinda gal). Do you guys think it would work?
