Swamp Thing LOTD

I did this look last week with some shades I got from my recent Fyrinnae order, and I'm wearing it again today for St. Patrick's Day.

Lid: Aztec Gold
Crease: Envy Me
Highlight: In the Spotlight
Inner Corner: a tiny bit of We're All Mad Here
Liner: Lucky Charmed (ha, how apt!)
Blush in Enchant
lips: Jouer lip gloss in Birchbox Pink

However, when I started this look Aztec Gold would NOT cooperate with me. It's one of those colors that seem to be layered, with a base and then a different color on top. Aztec Gold has a really green base, like Kermit the frog green, but the color as a whole is a gorgeous antiqued greenish gold. And I couldn't get this color to apply without losing that top burnished gold layer and just looking totally green and a little patchy. I was thinking I wanted a more gold/green look and it was just not going in that direction. I thought to myself "Huh, I look like the bloody Swamp Thing." So instead of fighting it, I just went with a super green look, and it turned out okay.

Actually, the version of it I did today turned out better (no time for pictures today). I may do it again because I sort of like this look. The only thing I did differently was use the tiniest amount of Pixie Epoxy and I patted the color on with almost absurd delicacy so as to not disturb the layers.

And here's a closeup:

That's all for today. Hope you all have a great St. Patrick's Day!
