The Kokiri Forest: Shiro Greens

I realized the other day that I hardly ever wear greens. That day I discovered I had an Ulta and was picking out NYX jumbo pencils, I was getting Caleb to help me decide which colors to get. It was down to a shimmery brown and a green. He said "Get the brown, you never wear green." I thought "huh. He's right." I don't know why, I love green. I particularly LOVE Shiro's greens so this look is using all the ones I have. I actually had my makeup done while there was still sunlight(wow!) so I got a few pictures without flash.

What I Used:

Face
-Covergirl Clean liquid foundation
-Meow Cosmetics Pampered Puss foundation in Frisky Persian
-Clinique blush in "Smoldering Plum" (even though you can never see my blush in pictures)

Eyes
-TFSI
-Shiro "Link" on outer V
-Shiro "Kokiri Forest" all over main lid
-Shiro "Budew" lower lashline
-Shiro "Spinarak" inner corners and blended above Link to create gradient
-Kat Von D tattoo liner
-Maybelline Falsies black mascara
-NYX jumbo pencil in "Black Bean" on waterline

Lips
-Bonne Bell Lip Lites gloss in "Mocha Mousse" (delicious) Also it's not as peachy as it appears in that picture, it's pretty mauve-y brownish.

I'm going to start wearing greens more. Honestly I think green eyeshadow looks pretty good with my complexion, almost as much as purple. Oh, and how much do you love Shiro? Yeah. I've said it a million times but you can't tell me these greens aren't gorgeous. I especially love Spinarak, it's very subtle but beautiful.

Have a lovely evening!

  3. I love green! I need to wear makeup in general more. I never wore much makeup until I discovered indie brands like Fyrinnae.
