FOTD: Forest Green


I did another green look yesterday using "Forest Green" Pigment from the COOL collection, in addition to my other green pigments, "Emerald Green" (which I now love), and "Golden Olive".

I first used "Masque" lipstick on the lips with "Underage" lipglass, then later switched it for a more spunky look with Avon's Lipgloss in "Nude Peach" which in person is such a gorgeous, peachy shade with the right amount of shimmer.

The first look:

Later that night:

What I used:

- Camellia Rose Skin Soothing Primer
- MAC StudioFinish Concealer NC30
- MMBB Mineral Foundation


- Milani Blush in "Luminous"
- Everyday Minerals Blush in "All Smiles"
- Sculpt Powder to Contour


- MAC Paint Pot in "Soft Ochre" as base (all over the lid)
- Everyday Minerals (EDM) eyeshadow "Scented Candles" all over the lid and as highlight
- MAC Pigment in "Golden Olive" on the inner corners of the lid
- MAC Eyeshadow in "Humid" on lid just above crease
- MAC Pigment in "Emerald Green" over humid
- MAC Pigment in "Forest Green" on outer-V and contour
- Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner
- Nixie Liquid Eyeliner in Black
- Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara

(1st Look): MAC Lipstick in "Masque" with MAC lipglass in "Underage"
(2nd Look): Avon lipgloss in "Nude Peach"

This look is absolutely beautiful! The green is such a good color for you.

Mrs. Lynne said...

I like both sis! But I like the fall effect that the Nude Peach brings. Very meadow-like.

(g)ezebel said...

ooOOoo! i looove green eyeshadows with brown eyes. it's my favorite next to teals. very beautiful!

Row said...

Oooh it matches your top too! I love greens, it looks fantastic on you.

Fei said...

The Avon looks great paired with the green eyes! I have no green shadows, because I tend to not like the way it looks on me, but perhaps I should give it another shot!

Alice said...

Hi Vanessa! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the color green, it's actually one of my new favorite colors as of the beginning of the school year so I'm happy you did this look. Plus you match with your clothes so that's awesome haha. Anyway I don't have too much else to say but since I like to read your product reviews and your FOTD, I figure it's only right to still leave a comment. =]

Girl Meets Makeup said...

Gorgeous! You look great in green, and the Avon lipglass is a great color.

shellie said...

I love this FOTD! Green is my favorite color and I'm just in love with this! Now I'm gonna go out and buy the pigments or whatever's closest to their color =)

Hi Vanessa!

I have the most difficult time posting on the chat box so i've decided to post here instead!

I figured out from ur previous post that u've used revlon concealer before. how do u know which shade suits u without trying it on under ur eyes?? i know we're supposed to pick one or two shades lighter than our foundation but the thing is that i dont use foundation so i'm having a bit of a diffculty picking a shade...

alien man?! said...

I esp. love it in combination w/the Nude Peach. It reminds me of Batman's Poison Ivy, and I LOOOOVE all things Batman :D

kaikai said...

i love the green FOTD..
im gonna try this one later..
ilove green...
it looks good in Asians..

rocketqueen said...

Wow, you are so pretty and that mu application is perfect and flawless! Thanks for posting, I love everything you write and inform about!

Lisa said...

you're killing it with that avon lipstick! i love it. do you know if mac has a similiar color to that? & i am so mad at myself for not getting masque lipstick :( i'm so jealous right now! love the green look!!

Vanessa said...

Thanks Moi and Ren! Sis Ren, yeah a lotta ladies liked the nude peach's a nice change for once!

Anne- Thanks! hahaha awwww I can imagine you running home to check the heater, you are so funny, lol. And yes, not forgetting Fafi!

Thank you Senorita Bonita! I am starting to really love green!

Christiana- Thank you love! Yeah lately I have been into blushes, it's getting a bit absurd haha, but now I am more into the matte blushes rather than those with shimmer.

Lynne- Thanks sissy!

Gezebel, Row, and all you lovely ladies! Thanks!

Fei- I think GREEN would love marvelous on you! You have great skin!

Alice- Thanks! Yeah I am weird like that I love matching with my makeup with my shirts, and my shirts to my shoes, LOL!

Thanks Emilee!

Shellie- Send me your FOTD, I would love to see you in green!

Stephy- See I actually use foundation to go OVER the concealer and I usually go a shade lighter to brighten my eyes when I cover up my dark circles. I suggest if you just want to cover your dark circles, and wear NO foundation then buy concealers at Rite-Aid since you can return open makeup products if you don't like them, and go with a shade that exactly matches your skintone.

Alienman- Can I be a Robin?

Rocketqueen- Thank you! You are so sweet and I am glad you are enjoying the site!

Lisa- Haha thank you! It's one of my favorite glosses right now. And it's cheap too! Yeah Masque is a gorgeous color, very natural too!
I am not sure of a lipglass color from MAC (at least that comes into mind at the moment) that is similar to AVON's Nude Peach, I personally suggest getting the AVON one since it's a lot cheaper!

psychoexgirlfriend said...

Wow Vanessa, the nude peach looks amazing on you!

alien man?! said...

What! You want to be Robin?! Then, who's going to be Alfred?!

Oh, I guess I am, hehehehe

Hi Vanessa!

this look looks great! How on earth do you wear colors on your inner rim like that? When I do that, my eyes just water up and end up getting itchy..and then eventually whatever I put on my inner rim gets wiped off or smeared :( Any tricks on making it stay and not get into ur eyes? I wear contacts so it's important for me not to get stuff on it.
