|Clockwise from the top; Lush, Jade, Goddess|
I'm terrified of true greens. Don't get me wrong, nothing makes my heart beat like a good olive. But send a bright yellow green or forest green my way and I'll have no idea what to do with it. So of course, despite my great experience with LORAC shadows, I was hesitant to order the last of them; Jade, Lush and Goddess (the descriptions made them sound really really green! I was frightened!).
Before I ramble any further- swatches!
Yes, two of them are done indoors under natural light bulb. I did Goddess outside but then it was overcast.
Lush is a shimmery swamp green with a slight sheen.
Goddess is a bright yellow green shimmer.
Jade is nothing like it's name, but a blackened green base with bright olive sparkle.
Lo and behold, I had nothing to be afraid of. Though at first strange and unfamiliar to me, I quickly found out that these colors when used together made a fantastic green smokey eye.
I'm gonna call this look Peaches'n'Green!
