Wood Elf

I hope you're not getting tired of teal/green looks yet? I've had that gorgeous green glitter sitting in my stash for some months, but I never got round to using it before. It's practically the same as MAC's Green glitter colour-wise - a very beautiful, blue-based green. I applied Fyrinnae's Leif (intense medium green with slight gold shimmer) all over my lid, darkened the outer corners with Bottle Green and then usd Ophelia's Tears (light green) to blend upwards. To make the glitter stick, I used my Fixing Gel and applied it both on my inner lid and beneath my eye, drawing it out onto my cheek and adding some rhinestones and false Ardell lashes:








Product List
MAC Bare Canvas, Fyrinnae Leif, MAC Bottle Green, Archetype Ophelia's Tears, green glitter, rhinestones, Maybelline Expression kohl in black, CG Lash Blast, Ardell Lashes

I love this- the "tear" is just beautiful! Not only is the look beautiful, but the photos themselves are incredible- the fact that you're able to capture the depth and shimmer of the look- great job again!

wow, you are an artist - not only with make up but also with a camera. i just plain love your tenerife pix!!

btw: a little suggestion: if you'd place the "tear" a little more toward the outer side of your eyes, following the curve of your cheekbone, imho, the effect would be even more stunning. to me, this version looks a tiny little bit like "harlequin"-type ;) very tiny little bit, though ...

all the best,

wow! the first picture is absolutely stunning!! can't stop staring at it.. the rich brown..ness of your brows & the pretty green really spell out 'wood elf'! :D

Padmita said...

Thanks very much everyone!!

@Mme Hühnerschreck: I actually placed the "tears" in the middle on purpose - I normally apply them in the inner corners, but I will try the outer corner next time :)! Thanks for the suggestion!

@lord voldemort: wow, I didn't know you read beauty blogs ;-)!!

Zoë said...

......stunning is the word im looking for
(was speechless for a moment)

a trail of glitter tears makes for a pretty picture!

question, what kind of eye makeup remover do you use? and have u ever had any sorts of irritation from glitter...i would love to try to get into them but they are intimidating it seems

:)

Padmita said...

I use an (almost indecent) amount of Nivea cream to remove my eye make up - I slap the cream on my lids, and then I remove the cream and the glitter together with a cotton pad. I've never had any irritation from glitter until now, but I'm always careful when applying and removing it.
