Green Eyed Girl

Chloe S/S 07 ad campaign, by Ines Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

I'm loving the eye makeup in these ads (click to enlarge). Pale yellow, chartreuse and bright green shimmer eyeshadows say everything about the newness and freshness of Spring...which I am craving so badly right now.

This isn't exactly an "everyday" look, but you can dissect it and make it work for you. A few ideas (not to be used all at the same time, natch):

Switch out your usual highlight shade for a pale yellow-gold shimmer shadow on inner corners and browbones. I like Nars Cream Eyeshadow in Cosmic Girl.

For a more wearable take on the green, I love the hunter green shade in the Jardin D'Amour trio from Vincent Longo.

And if you want to go for the full-out green and yellow look I would simply suggest printing out the ad and bringing it to your favorite MAC salesgirl!
