Spotlight On: MAC Kelly

kellyFinish: Satin / Bright kelly green

Kelly is an insanely bright green and while it’s a satin finish, I didn’t have any trouble working with it at all. The only trouble I had with this one was creating combos! LOL! This is such a bright shade that it needs to be paired with just the right colors, or used sparingly, in order to look right – in my opinion, at least. By the time I got to Look #4 for this post I was creatively spent but I am determined to find more great looks with Kelly, so there will be updates in the future. If you have brown eyes, this really is a must-consider color as the contrast against brown eyes is utterly amazing.

Look #1

MAC eyeshadows used:

  • Greenstroke paint pot LE (on lid, below crease)
  • Guacamole LE (inner 2/3 of lid) – could also use ‘Swimming’ here
  • Juxt (layered over Guacamole)
  • Kelly (outer third of lid)
  • Bottle Green (crease and lower lashline)
  • Vanilla (blend)

  1. Wow! This is a bright green! I bet it was not easy to come up with looks for this one, but you always do! :) My favorite look is 4. I think I’ll pass on this one because of it being so bright. It looks good on you though.

  2. Beautiful looks as always, Zabrena! I love Kelly too but as you say, it can be a little hard to find combinations using it as it is so bright! It does complements brown eyes really well, though. I especially love look 3 – I will definitely have to try that combination!

    I’ve tried Kelly along with silver and blue and it worked really well. Here’s the combination, in case you fancy trying it out:

    Base: Painterly paintpot
    Outer v: Kelly (topped with a bit of Humid to mute it a little)
    Crease: Blue Candy (or Electric Eel)
    Lid: Electra
    Highlight: Brule + a bit of Shroom
    Lower Lashline: Silver Ring (inner )+Kelly (outer)

  3. Thank you so much for these green looks! I have been trying to find ways to use my MUG greens for a while. Number 2 worked so well! It was beautiful ( and not too green).
