How I wear Nars Ireland eyeshadow duo

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Friday, February 17, 2006 3:31 PM (Eastern)

rotfl! I surfed around a bit today and saw that Nars Ireland has drawn some rants on the Net. It's usually the green shade that people don't seem to like. Now I'm not going to say that everyone is going to like it, or that it's the best green shade for ya...on the board, JennyB and Arabella have noted that MAC Surreal might well suit you better, particularly if you're green-eyed with cooler coloring. But FTR, here is how I wear Nars Ireland:

First I put down a thin layer of my trusty MAC Blot powder on my lids (I do this every day anyway when I'm putting on my powder).

Then I take the green shade and put a thin layer of that on lids only. Here I go for a sheer layer of green. Start with a small amount and add more only if needed. I start with the outer portion of the lid and work my way inward so that most of the color is on the outer third.

Then I take the grey shade...that's if I don't just wear the green as is...and use my MAC #224 brush (or whatever brush you use for your crease work) and dabble a bit of the grey in my outer crease and blend.

With this I usually use a deep grey liner (MAC Grey Utility Powerpoint). Then I take the discontinued (grumbles) MAC Heirloom Eye Kohl and draw a line right above the Grey Utility. Heirloom adds an elusive opalescent sparkle to this look (and goes with other green, grey or blue shadows).

Hi! Great blog!

How insightful, to think I only used to just smear the whole pot on my eye lid.

I love the colours of Napolean's loose powder eye shadow pots. Would you apply them the same way?
