EOTD - Olive Smoky Eye

It was another morning where I just didn't want to be bothered with a complicated, intensely blended look that needed 5 different shadows and included 3 different textures. Yes, I have been lazy lately. I guess I'm already in Summer mode and yes, it's still April.

Well I took these three shades and tried to make the best of it. So here's my smoky olive eye look:

and this is what I used:

(NC 42 forearm)
 L to R:
MAC Rubenesque Paint Pot - peach gold cream shadow (lid)
MAC Sumptuous Olive - khaki w/pearl (lid)
MAC Soba - light golden brown shimmer
UD 24/7 Eyeliner - Stash - Drk Green/Gold (top lashline/smudged bottom)

I apologize for my lack of enthusiasm but at least I'm trying. For a Tuesday morning, it sure feels like a Monday.

Maybe this will cheer me up:

If anything I am now pumped to meet with my trainer at the gym this afternoon!


  1. This looks lovely on you. The Rubenesque PP makes the Sumptuous Olive shadow even more metallic! I love it!

  2. Awe shucks, thanks Elvira.

    PS - I am going to stalk the Le Metier de Beaute counter because of your last post. I still want their eye lash curler. Did you check it out?

  3. Love this look! I have trouble getting the MAC Sumptious olive to show up properly on my lids will try this over the paint pot!

  4. Hey Jen,
    Thanks. More times than I like to admit, I forget I own this shadow. I figured "what the hell" layer it over Rubenesque and see what happens.

    I'm glad I experimented!

  5. Lovely look :) Olive looks great on you. I really love it but for some reason it makes me look tired or washed out unless I use lots of black eyeliner with it.

  6. Hi Makeup Magpie,
    Thanks so much - it's the first time I layered Sumptuous Olive on top of Rubenesque. I am so pleased it's a hit!
