Mabon: The colors sound like Dropkick Murphys!
Only not "Tessie," because that's Red Sox colors.
Little known fact: In addition to my other fun brain issues, I'm a synaesthete. Colors have sounds for me.
This particular look sounds like DKM, with little surprise since it's a greens/brown/foresty look done on and for Mabon.
Gather your supplies: IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes mascara, UD Perversion pencil, NYX Shadow Base in White, MSC Optimus Primer, Afternoon Delight, Witch's Brew, and Steampunk. Not pictured: Visine for foiling purposes.
Start out with a medium opacity with your base. This is the NYX Shadow Base over Optimus Primer, of course. Primer always comes first.
Then line lower water/tight lash line thickly with Perversion, or the blackest black you can find.
Pat on your Witch's Brew to the middle of your pupil. Don't go easy - you want that yellow/gold duochrome to really pop through.
Then add your Steampunk to the outer half of your lids and about 1/2 way in to the crease above the Witch's Brew.
Close up of where that crease should be.
Take a toddler break! If you don't, he will wreak havoc and bring about dooom.
Add your Afternoon Delight to the inner corner and as brow highlight.
Do a little blendy blendy.
Add your mascara....
Voila! A lovely darker green look to acknowledge the coming slide into the darkness.
