Half an hour and a pair of eyelashes

Not long ago I purchased some crazy eyelashes from Illamasqua. I've never really had the opportunity to wear them (you will see why in a moment!) and so with a spare half hour in hand I got a little excited with my make up box and took inspiration from Poison Ivy.

Warning: this is going to get photo heavy!

And now for those lashes . .

I am in no way a photographer and feel a lot of the detail has been lost, however you can still get a feel for the look I was after. If I venture out for Halloween this year It's pretty likely I'll go down this route costume wise. 
I mainly focussed on contouring the cheeks and nose, along with creating an overall green 'glow' by blending around the hairline.

Key products used:
Illamasqua lashes - unfortunately this style are longer available on their website but a good substitute would be their bat lashes.
Maybelline EYESTUDIO lasting drama gel eyeliner in 10 Ultra Violet
Maxfactor false lash effect fusion mascara - I swear by this mascara and rarely use anything else
Illamasqua eyebrow cake in stark
Illamasqua power eye shadow in fame

Most of the other colours used are generic eye shadows that I can't even find a brand name on. Just go crazy with whatever blues/greens you can find! 
I have however since purchased a Lime Crime Carousel gloss in Hollygram, and an Illamasqua lipstick in apocalips, both of which would work fantastically with this look. 

Hopefully in the future I'll do a few more creative make up looks to share with you all, along with work in progress photos in order to do more of a tutorial if anyone wants to try it out.
