FOTD & Tutorial: Smokey Forest Green


A reader requested a smokey green look, the photos don't do it justice since the flash made it look a lot lighter than it is in person...also I used MAC e/s in "Bio-Green" which is a PRO only e/s, but you can get it at the MAC PRO stores without being a pro member. I think the closest dupe to it is either MAC pigment in "Kelly Green" & Ben Nye's "Chartreuse" (type it in the search box for a swatch/comparison).

What I used:


- MUFE HD Primer in "Mauve" (purple, and yes a review coming soon!)
- MAC Studio Fix Concealer in NC35
- MUFE HD Foundation #127

- MAC Fafi Blush in "Hipness"
- Milani Blush in "Luminous"

- MAC "Moss Scape" Paint Pot on lower half of the lid
- MAC "Bio-Green" e/s (PRO) on lower half of the lid
- MAC "Humid" e/s on outer-V and crease
- MAC "Fresh Green Mix" (dark side) near the middle of the lid
- MAC pigment in "Forest Green" (LE, from last year's "cool" pigment set) on outer-V
- MAC "Ricepaper" e/s as highlight
- MAC Fluidline in "Blacktrack"
- L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara

- MAC "Myth" lipstick as base
- MAC "Propagate" lipstick (LE)
- MAC "Beaux" Lipglass from this year's Neutral lipglass set

hi vanessa, i have a question. currently im nc37 in mac's studio fix fluid, and i've been trying to find my perfect shade in mufe's hd foundation. i have yellow/olive undertones, so i tried 140 but it was a little light for me. right now im using 153 and its a tad too dark for me. i saw that you used #127 in this fotd, is that a perfect match for you? and are you still a nc37 in mac? one of my friends mentioned that 127 was actually darker than 140. anyways, any feedback would be appreciated. thanks :)

So pretty! The colors don't look washed out at all, I'm having trouble picturing it even brighter! Oh well, I'm sure it's even prettier in person.
