FOTD: Using MAC Overrich Pigment in "Antique Green"


This is just a simple look I did using the new "Antique Green" pigment, I ended up returning the full-size and just got a sample of it instead since I doubt I would even use 1/4 of the jar in my lifetime, but nontheless it is a pretty color! What I like about it, is that it has a bit of color, but it's not so overpowering like "Teal" pigment, it is more subdued and actually is another alternative to a smoky look. I think a dupe of the Antique Green pigment would be TheSheSpace pigments in either Chasing Mystery or Moral Enemy (although Moral Enemy is more on the green side).

What I used:
- Sephora Makeup Primer
- MAC StudioFinish Concealer
- Purely Cosmetics Mineral Foundation in "Olive Beige"

- MAC Blush in "Coygirl"
- MAC "Sculpt" Powder to contour hallow parts of the cheek

- Ben Nye Eyeshadow in "Jade" on lid as a base and on lower lash line
- MAC Pigment in "Antique Green" applied wet with a sponge-tip applicator on the lower half of the lid.
- Mix of MAC e/s in "Carbon" and "Knight Divine" on outer-V
- MAC Fluidline in "Blacktrack"
- Blinc Kiss Me Mascara

- NYX Round Lipgloss in "Ballerina Pink"

hi vanessa,
my name is anna. my email address is i like this color. i do have a question though for you? if i wear like a teal blue looking dress would this eyeshadow color go with it or would it just make it look dramatic. let me know your opinion when you got a chance. thanks.

Hola Vanessa. Gracias por tu comentario! Vanessa that look looks so professional, so amazing, so rich! Where do you purchase your samples? I get them in because is the cheapest I have found. Their samples are for $1.59 each, some other places have them for almost $5 same colors, same size! Also I can't no longer write on the Cbox it always tells me that my name is protected, to use another,it doesn't let me write nothing, so I write comments instead. Take care...

OOO love love how you paired the antique green with a teal liner! :D really balances out the darkness of the top lid with a pop of neon brightness on the bottom

Beauuutiful shade. I love that you still spend the effort on using different shades and blending carefully, even when the colours are so similar.

Your brows look so neat there! Were you wearing eyebrow shadow?
