Special Edition: August Green n Aqua

This is my birthday makeup! Since my birthday is in August and the birthstone is a Peridot (light green gemstone), I decided to incorporate that in. I think is one of my most favorite looks I've ever done! Hope you enjoy!!

Foundation & Primers:
Mary Kay Foundation Primer and Mary Kay Eye Primer
Mary Kay TimeWise Matte-Wear Liquid Foundation in Beige 2
Mary Kay Liquid Facial Highlighting Pen in Shade 2
Mary Kay Liquid Illuminater in Shade 1 (discontinued, but there are lots of dupes on the market)
Setting Powder: Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder

Sadly, the shadows are not true to color in the picture. I will describe each one as best as I can.
This is the bh cosmetics Eyes on the 80's Palette
Base: Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Jumbo Eyeshadow Pen in Eternal White (this is so important when
using vibrant colors. white bases will intensify your colors dramatically.)                
Crease: For a soft transition crease color I used a soft Peachy shade ala Peach Smoothie by MUG (#1)
Lid: Outer and Inner third of the lids (leave center blank right now) I started out with Ulta's "Too Blue" which is a bright aqua blue. When I added a little bit of #2 on top of it on the inner corner I really like the effect so I went with it! It's a light beachy aqua color. 
On the Center of the lid I used a bright lime green (#3) and really packed it on there.
Outer V: I played around with grays and browns lightly, but then I used the cobalt blue in the bh palette (#4). (Thank you, Nicole Guerierro, for the inpsiration!). As you can see, the color in the picture looks nothing like a cobalt blue. *facepalm* I've got to work on this picture!
Highlight Under Brow & Inner Corner: I didn't number it but I used Bone by Ulta from crease to brow then for the shimmer highlight I used a bit of the shimmer champagne shade just below #4
Bottom Lid: I repeated the pattern of aqua, green, aqua like I did with my upper lid.

Upper lid: Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black (this is last use of this!! It is totally dried out!!)
Upper Waterline: Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in Black
Lower Waterline: Jordana Easy Liner in Blue Devine (kind of a navy, cobalt blue mix). I also brought this out of the waterline and into the inner portion of the eye on the line to create an elongated look.
My bottom lids are tattooed Black.
Mascara: Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara in Black
Lashes: Ardele 135
Brows: Maybelline Brow Definer in Deep Brown with Mary Kay Eyebrow Gel

Bronzer: Mary Kay Bronzing Powder in Light-Medium
Blush: Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush
Highlight: Mary Lou Manizer by the Balm

Liner: Rimmel Lip Liner in East End Snob
Lipstick: Loreal Color Riche Lipstick in Saucy Mauve

Lipgloss: Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lipgloss in Au Natrurel
