UD Chronic for St. Patty's Day

Tutorial time!  When was the last time I had one of these?  Sorry!  Midterms were last week and I can't believe I'm studying for finals this week!  Anyways, remember when I received my Urban Decay mini haul a few weeks ago?  Well, I never got a chance to use my matte eyeshadow in Chronic, which I got on sale for $3.  Here was my chance to test it out AND do a tutorial.  This is what I did with it:

I thought it would perfect for this upcoming St. Patrick's Day!  Chronic is a more earthy, green tea shade.  Being matte, it's a little less flashy for those of us who want a more subdued St. Patty's look as opposed to mimicking a glittery leprechaun (which I think would be rather fun too...maybe another day).  Anywho, to start, I apply some Chronic halfway across my primed upper eyelid:

Next, I take a dark brown shade, here I'm using UD's Darkhorse, and apply it to the outer corner of my upper eyelid:

Then, to soften the outer corner, I blend a shimmery taupe shade along the edges.  Here I'm using UD's Suspect:

With my UD Eyeshadow Pencil in Rehab, I'm going to trace along my bottom lash line:

Then I'm going to layer Darkhorse over Rehab:

To lighten up the look, I'm going to softly blend some Suspect right along the edge of my liner:

With black gel eyeliner, I'm going to trace a winged line along my upper lash line:

Curl lashes, apply mascara, and I'm all set!

Overall look:

Cheeks: ELF Studio Blush in Twinkle Pink.  Lips: UD Lip Junkie in Crush

Hope y'all enjoyed the tutorial and don't forget to get your green on this Saturday!
