    Did you wear any contacts here, Phyllis? it definately made the brown pop!

  • Reply Phyllis December 8, 2009 at 12:42 am

    No I didn’t Christine. My eyes are dark brown but they tend to appear lighter under the flash or when I wear certain colors (gray makes them pop too!)

    I know this is an old post, but that is by far, the prettiest green eye shadow look I’ve found on the web. Off to buy Mac Humid, exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!
