wearing the new hourglass Modernist Eye shadow Palettes in color field and Obscura on my lids, $58 each
Ten-hut! members of the neutral eyeshadow makeup army, fall in, and salute the newest member of our ranks. Her codename: army green.
Also known as olive, who, I know, you may have seen around base last summer, but she’s also trained as a fully functional neutral, like agents beige, taupe and tan.
Let’s be real. woman cannot live on brown shadow alone. At some point, even our favorite neutrals, as classic and timeless as they are, need refreshing, and the brass feels that army green eyeshadow is the new way to go.
On my cheeks, I’m wearing hourglass Ambient lighting blush in Diffused heat (the apples), hourglass Superficial Mirage Bronzer (for subtle contouring) and Ambient lighting Powder in Radiant Light
My favorite army green finishes are satins and shimmers, but I think some of the mattes are stunning too. but then, some of them (the mattes) also tend to fall a little flat, or end up being challenging to blend. I’m a mattes girl through and through, but gimme a satin or shimmery army green any day of the week.
That’s Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz on my brows and YSL Babydoll Mascara on my lashes
The trick is finding the best finish for you. In my case, I like shimmers that don’t showcase my fine lines, and I don’t want a formula that’s going to give me any grief (also known as patchiness and fallout), because oy! — I already get enough of that from mah cat.

The army greens in the new $58 hourglass Modernest Eyeshadow palette in color field are so my jam.
The new hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow palette in color field ($58)
One of seven new hourglass powder eyeshadow quints coming this spring, color field has two army greens you need to get on yo’ lids like best NOW.
The lighter one has golden pearl, and the darker one is richer and filled with flecks of micro golden glitter. Both are so completely forgiving on my lids that they make me feel like 29-year-old Karen, the wee lass she was…
Color field also contains a matte beige (which is kind of like a powder eyeshadow version of MAC Painterly paint Pot), a neutral shimmery gold, and a neutral mid-toned tan.
Last weekend color field and I had a blast. picture a draped dress that effortlessly flows in all the best places, and these shadows are like that.
The shades fluidly transition into each other with hardly any fallout and last all day long with primer.
I’ve already made room in my hourglass drawer for much more of the seven Modernist palettes, which are available now online for VIB Rouge members, and soon to be available for errryone else.

The hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow palette in Obscura
For the makeup I’m wearing here, I mixed the brown and beige shades from Obscura, which is one of the other new hourglass Modernist palettes, and swept them into the crease. then I patted the army greens from color field on my lids.
