Spring Look Du Jour 4.30.09

I felt very Spring-y this morning even though it wasn't as warm in New York City as it has been the past few days. Yesterday, I caved into MAC's aquavert eyeshadow and I am so glad I did. I initially stayed away from it because I am not a pastel kinda girl. It had been calling my name for some time and I resisted, until now. I swatched it on the back of my hand, and I loved what a shimmery light green wash it gave me. It isn't too pigmented which I consider a good thing in this shadow. You could definitley build up the color if you wanted to by layering and using fix+

Anyway, See below, the picture is not as vibrant as the look is in real life. It was a bit more green.

MAC PaintPot in Bare Study
MAC Eyeshadow in Aquavert on Lid to crease
MAC Eyeshadow in Omega- very lightly in the crease
MAC Eyeshadow in Brule as a Highlight
Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara- LOVE
(excuse the messy brows, they are in need of a plucking)

Some rando NYX Nude Gloss, that I love.

I didn't use eyeliner today which is unheard of but I wanted to keep it light and natural. No dark lines.
