EOTD Lucky Aquarius

These are TKB's colors again: Aquarius with Lucky Green. Aquarius is based on chromium oxide green and ferric ferrocyanide - this means that when one rubs it, the black oxides won't be there to show through - it just becomes more blue-green instead of murky gray. The black fallout on my face is street dust - it's windy today and I just came from walking the dog.
Lucky Green is part of the Irish Eye set and is a cheerful turquoise greenish marvel with some golden sparkle. It's ingredients are not pure MMU, also contains some lake dyes (so does the dark green Dublin), Limerick is the only pure MMU eye pigment in that set.
These photos are taken in the evening, 10 hrs after application. I used the E.L.F. mineral eye shadow primer, the very runny one - for some reason one of my eyes creased like mad but the other one looks presentable still. I do not have much faith in that primer, deservedly so I'd like to think.

Here's a color experiment from last weekend. This is what one gets by mixing Green Apple with Raspberry (The Pop! sampler) adding a touch of Travel to Pluto. Not my color, I looked as if I spent half the night crying. It really looks more reddish irl. The sheen was marvelous though! I think it was Travel to Pluto that accomplished this.

And as last: something scary from yesterday. Copper Penny as mono color. I had the same color shirt too that day... still too scary though.

Oi see oranž on kihvt sul silmadel ikkagi. On noh!

My fave is the first combo :)
If you still want to use your home made color without the "crying look" you could apply some black eyeliner. It will create a line between your eye color and the ES color and will look better.
I think Copper Penny is a bit too red to be worn alone.

Oranž on loodud sinistele silmadele, kahju vaid et kanda ei oska. Tuleb rohkem erinevaid kombinatsioone läbi mängida.

I do agree on the homemade color - it needs something else next to it. So does Copper Penny - I just have to figure out what it might be...
