TOP 5 GREEN MAC EYESHADOWS

 
Since St. Patrick's day is around the corner I thought I would do a post devoted to my favorite eyeshadow color... GREEN! I typically wear neutrals, but if I am looking to mix things up I almost always reach for one of these. If you are familiar with my blog, many of these will not be a surprise to you, as they are on a lot of my "Top 10" lists. Please click to enlarge!

 
From left to right: Lucky Green, Sumptuous Olive, Humid, Club, Greensmoke


HUMID (FROST)

Humid is a cross between a hunter green and a forest green with shimmer. The great thing about this shadow is it looks amazing on the lid AND in the crease, which is rare for a frost, imo. My favorite, hands down!


SUMPTUOUS OLIVE (VELUXE PEARL)

 A bronzy olive color with shimmer. I prefer this one on the lid, which warm matte browns in the crease. It has amazing texture and looks gorgeous on everyone!
CLUB (SATIN)

Club is described as a red-brown with green pearl. It was my first MAC eyeshadow -- so it's near and dear to heart. Although this shadow is one of my favorites, it can be a little difficult to make it fully opaque on the lid... I recommend using it wet and/or a really good primer underneath. You just have to take your time and pack the color on... but it's worth it!





LUCKY GREEN (FROST)

Lucky Green a true chartruese with shimmer. Although I don't use this as much as the others, it still has a special place in my heart. I typically wear it one of two ways: the inner 1/2 of the lid when doing a green eye, or a light sweep in the crease over a neutral, which helps to bring out my eyes.



GREENSMOKE (LUSTER)
 
Greensmoke is a, well... smokey green with glitter. Anyone who has used a Luster finish eyeshadow from MAC knows that they are kind of a pain in the ass... but Greensmoke is gorgeous when you put in a little extra work. I like to use a black base when using this eyeshadow. You really have to pack it on with a flat shader, and expect a little glitter fallout when applying. Click HERE for a look using Greensmoke.

 
 
 
 
I still need to pick up their two PRO colors: Kelly and Bottle Green. I wish MAC would make more permanent greens... the only ones I don't have are Swimming, Juxt, and Bitter -- which are all hideous in my opinion.
 
 
I will be doing a look later this week using a combination of these, just in time for St. Patty's Day! I hope you all are enjoying your week so far!
