    Yeah right! I have Club eyeshadow and it doesn’t look like that under ANY light no matter how much you put on. It’s just not that green! Nowhere near.

      That’s pretty much exactly what I thought. Club might be “part” of this look, but there is no possible way you could get that color just from Club and… Carbon… No.

      Sorry I’m late, but it’s not simply carbon and club. Smolder eye kohl was blended over the entire lid, carbon was used to set and diffuse it, and club was applied over it… It does look that green layered over a black creamy base. Try layering club over blackground paint pot–it gives a similar effect, has less of a chance of creasing, and is a lot easier to do.
