{Jen} Eye of the Day - Acid yellow/green

This look was built around wanting to play with one of my MAC Electric Cool eyeshadows. (More about that after the cut.) Then at the last minute I decided to do the pop of teal eyeliner, which ended up making the look for me. Let me know what you think!




Face:
Primer: MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect
Foundation: MAC Studio Fix Fluid NC15
Finishing Powder: Mac Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
Blush: MAC Sheertone blush in Pinch O' Peach
Highlight: Nars Albatross

Eye Primer:
Urban Decay Primer Potion (Sin)

Lid: 
Base: MAC Electric Cool e/s in Brilliantly Lit
Set with: MAC Three Ring Yellow
So Electric Cool shadows have the coolest texture! They're a reformulation of the Big Bounce shadows if you remember those, but are really a completely different texture. The BB shadows were a very wet attempt at a mousse. They have the consistency of a creamy foundation. I have several and they're something different to play with, but can be a bit persnickity to blend and have longevity problems unless set with a powder shadow. The EC shadows are much less liquidy and have an almost spongy texture in the container. They apply like a slightly creamier paint pot but then set pretty quickly into a powder finish. I haven't used the ones I have a ton yet, but they've been fun to play with.

Crease:
MAC Tempting

Highlight under brow:
Nars Albatross

Liner:
Upper: Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Covet

not in the picture, but i used MAC Tendertone balm in Tread Gently (a very sheer green/gold color)
