Focus On: Urban Decay Green Goddess

Focus On is a work in progress. Have you ever talked yourself out of buying a product because the color was too odd, and you wondered how often you would really be able to use it? Or, you know those colors you LOVE because of some hidden versatility that you never imagined when you bought it? I do that ALL of the time. In the interests of loving what I HAVE, and learning its limitations, rather than relying on the influx of new colors, I will be doing this post every Saturday, focusing on a new color from my collection, with examples of past work, ideas for other uses. Please feel free to suggest colors you wish to see, or uses for the ones listed, or let me know what your favorites are for future posts.

Green goddess is a frosty green midway between a seafoam and a mint.  It’s a fairly cool toned color, with white frost.

A purple crease accents the green base, and the cool blue lid prevents it from being too harsh a contrast.

Apply over a darker green base, and the frost seems to separate into glitter.

Green Goddess looks gorgeous over yellow-based greens.  Use a matte shadow underneathe it to brighten it up.

Green Goddess blends easily above brigher crease colors, to soften.

This may sound strange—-but if you want to wear a very warm, bright smoky eye, this looks stunning in the inner corner, for contrast!
