Neutral look with a "splash" of green.

Hello my lovely readers. I'm sorry I've been MIA but I have been ill for the last couple of days. So, I finally got aroung to doing a look for you. The quality of the pictures is not the best but you get the idea. It is mainly a neutral look with an added element.
On the lid I used my ISADORA cosmetics quad in "Silvery Grey".If you want to have a look it is in my October favorites (http://lifeisonebigplayground.blogspot.com/2009/11/october-favoritesbetter-late-than-never.html). I mainly used the lighter color all over the lid& up to the brow bone and then some of the grey in the crease.
Then, what did to spice this look up is: I lined my bottom lashline with a green shadow(using my angled eye-liner brush). Firstly I applied some Too Faced Shadow Insurance to help the eyeshadow stick and then used an amazing green shadow from my NYX "Mysterious Brown eyes" palette.
If you have brown eyes, like I do, the green will really make them pop. Unfortunately I don't know what colors would be good for different color eyes however I will try some stuff on a couple a friends and report back.
I hope you like this idea. If you have any more ideas on how to spice up a neutral look please comment and let me know.





p.s. On my lashes: MAC zoomlash mascara.

I hope you like it.
