FOTD using MAC Aquavert

Hey beauties!
Here is a look I did yesterday using MAC Aquavert eyeshadow. It is a very wearable look for daytime. It is one of those colours which I didn't know exactly what to pair it with, but I think I came up with good choices. I was having trouble capturing the colour with my camera. It is a really pale green and looks even more beautiful in real life. It doesn't look like I'm wearing that much eyeshadow, but it really did stand out better in person. Hope you enjoy!

Do my eyelashes look longer or thicker to you? I heard that if you put Vaseline on your eyelashes before you go to bed it will condition them. I've been trying this trick for 10 days now and I notice a difference already! I was going to wait a month to do a post on this, but I really had to let you know how well I think it's working!

  1. Your eyelashes look SUPER long! I love the eyeshadow...really nice colour. I have a similar Lancome one that has pink iridescence running through it and it's gorgeous. Look this look!

  2. I want Aquavert so bad!! I'm kicking myself for not buying it... anyways, gorgeous look! A really hot look with Aquavert is A on the lid, Sumptuous Olive in outer corner and crease, and Carbon in outer V.

    I also like Aquavert...I need a dupe since MAC doesn't sell it anymore :-( What do you recommend?

  14. @Mary007 - you can still buy Aquavert online at www.maccosmetics.com ...it's under the "Goodbyes" section. I'll be on the look out for a good dupe though. I don't know any off hand.
