  1. I love greens, they are so beautiful and look good on everyone. It’s just a matter of finding the right shades. These looks are all beautiful, especially the last one. It’s so colorful!

  2. I love how many ways you found to incorporate green, makes me want to do an EOTD soon! My favorite is the Rainbow Eyes one 🙂 Green is actually my favorite eyeshadow color b/c I love how versatile it is. I did this green EOTD awhile back, and I was pretty happy with how it turned out: http://makeupmorsels.wordpress.com/2010/06/22/eotd-smokey-green/ You have inspired me to get back to my neglected green shadows!
