Green and purple inspired

In one my previous hauls from MAC I grab Humid e/s, a gorgeous deep green with golden undertones. I do not know why but I am currently in a green mood :p! I also decided to go for a slightly different shape for my eye make-up. I used the same dark shade, Humid, as a thick smoked-out liner on my upper lashline and also as outer-V. It could be seen on the pics, it is not that obvious as I might not have packed enough green on to truly make it stand out :
On the eyes:
- all over the lid, pigment Violet FA 115 from Paris Ax
(I am not sure this is sold abroad but they can easily be duplicated)
inner corners and as a blending shade upwards towards the brow, pigment Glimmer green from TKB
- along the upper lashline and as outer V shade, eyeshadow Humid from MAC
- along the lower lashline, inner half, Glimmer green, outer half Humid
- as a thin liner on top lashline, pigment Ultimate Vert from Pure Luxe
(applied foiled) and in both waterlines, pigment Drama queen violet from Aromaleigh (foiled again but with a waterproof mixing medium like Eye Seal from MUFE)
- of course mascara, l'Oreal Double ExtendBeauty Tubes, one coat (OMG my HG!).

To conclude, full face pics to see the global look I went for :

foundation : correcting palette MUFE n°1 + Unifiance crème de poudre n°1 (discontinued product from LRP) + MAC Select Cover-up concealer NW 20 + Météorites from Guerlain.
blush : darkest blush from the eyeshadows/blush combo palette from Coastal Scents + contour & highlight Allover colour pressed powder Almond Blossom from Clinique
lips : Caught Kissing Lipbalm Take no prisoners from The She Space (organic lipbalms tinted with mica, really nice and creamy but not available on the website for now).
eyebrows: random brown pencil

Do you like it? Please do not focus on my elf-like ears. I know they look weird.

This colorful look is soft enough to be worn at work I think. If I can give a last piece of advice, pack more blush on your cheeks than you will normally do because otherwise with these plain colors you will look like a corpse during winter months :p...

See ya :)

I am like Tali on this, I kind of want the meteorites, probably in pressed form, but I don't really know what they would do for me or whether I would really use them.

I know you won't believe me, but your ears are totally normal and super cute!

@Tali: thanks hon! I do love your eyes too. Perfect almond shape and you know how to bring out the best of them. For the Meteorites pressed powder if I rebuy them I will go for the Beige Chic color too. I has a free session make-up in Guerlain a while ago and they told me this will be the best shade for me :). About needing or not, I am not sure both of us really need more makeup but I have to reckon it is a good pressed powder very finely milled and not cakey looking so... :p

@Musing on Beauty: it depends on what kind of powder you like. They are the best loose powder I tried so far as it is very lightweight, not fully mat but not glowy/greasy,it keeps me from shining and I am kind of addicted to its smell now.
I have tons of powder (mainly pressed ones) I have not tried yet but I truly like this one, I feel prettier when I use it... Maybe it is my beauty snob side who speaks :)))
My ears are way too big but you know complex, complex :p
