This is a variation on the Sapphire Bronze Glow and Amethyst Bronze Glow posts and shows how using a different base eyeshadow colour can easily change up an existing look. This look uses a seafoam green, instead of a bright blue, on the eyelid and creates a softer, more subtle effect on the eyes.

Here’s how to re-create this look:
Base: MAC Painterly Paint Pot (neutral light beige)
Upper and Lower Lashlines: Urban Decay Lucky (coppery-bronze eyeliner with slight shimmer)
Lid: Urban Decay Green Goddess eyeshadow (shimmery medium seafoam green)
Crease: MAC Juxt eyeshadow (pale shimmery yellowy-green)
Crease: MAC Strike a Pose eyeshadow (medium shimmery teal)
Highlight: MAC Brule eyeshadow (light matte beige) + MAC Naked Lunch (satin pinky-beige)
Lower Lashline: Urban Decay Green Goddess
1. Apply Painterly Paint Pot all over the lid as a base. You can either use your fingers or a flat synthetic brush (e.g. MAC 242).
2. Apply Lucky eyeliner to your upper and lower lashlines.
3. Apply Green Goddess on to the eyelid using a gentle patting motion (e.g. MAC 239).
4. Use Juxt lightly in the crease of the eye to blend out the edges of Green Goddess (e.g. MAC 217). I used Juxt for this as it has a slightly yellowy-edge to it which I felt paired better with Green Goddess, but you could still use Aquavert.
5. Apply Strike a Pose in the crease to add some extra definition to the eye.
6. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Brule, followed by Naked Lunch, on to the browbone to highlight.
7.Using an pencil brush (e.g .MAC 219) apply Green Goddessto the lower lashline, just below the Lucky eyeliner.
8. Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
