Looks Post - Week of Mar 12 - Prompt: St. Patrick's Day

We are choosing a prompt a week; a creative way of coming up with new make-up looks so we don't get bored. These prompts can be a word, a picture, theme, color or pretty much anything we think might be inspirational.

We will post a new prompt every Sunday. We (and you) have all week to create something fun then we'll post a new blog entry with our looks at the end of the week. Join us by creating your own look(s) and linking us to it in the comments of our weekly "Looks" post.

This didn't match the vision in my head. Methinks I need to get a lighter silver gray eye shadow to make this work the way I want. ;p ~v_t

  1. So gorgeous, ladies!! I'm loving all of the green/sparkles and each of your different styles. I got a bit over zealous and did a few looks. I'm a wordy mofo, so you can just scroll to the bottom for the looks. Excited for this week's challenge :o)
