Disney sidekick - Pascal (from Tangled) inspired EOTD

My new favourite Disney Sidekick and I'll tell you why. I rented Tangled and watched it twice in a row. Pascal is incredible. He's so expressive. He turns blue and red when scared/angry but green is probably my second favourite colour at the minute and I had wanted to do some green eyeshadow today so it all worked out. I tried to keep it rounded and lighter in the centre like real chameleons. I held a chameleon once on a school trip. It had awesome eyes and feet, all swivelly (shut up it is a word).

My fringe would not behave and got a firm hair-clipping!

Base - UDPP in Eden, Illamasqua cream pigment in Bedaub (centre lid) and Jumbo Pencil in Milk (inner corner and lower lash line), Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy under the eye.
Eyeshadows - Inglot matte grass green 384 concentrated on inner and outer  sides of crease and glitter chartreuse AMC 59 in centre of lid. Matte skintone 352 to blend. MAC Newly Minted (for blending crease) and Sugarpill Chromalust in Tipsy (lower lashline/inner corner).
Eyeliner/Mascara - Illamasqua medium pencil in Vow (waterline, to make my eyes look rounder/bigger) Boujois Clubbing Liner in Black (not flicked out so eyes looked rounder... hopefully) and Boujois Volumizer mascara in Black.
Eyebrows -  Kryolan aqua blue coloured cream liner and Illamasqua matte blue eyeshadow in Sadist.
Face - Laura Mercier oil-free tinted moisturizer in Porcelain, set with a tiny bit of Clinique powder (I have noticed this is too yellow for my skin even though it's supposedly translucent so I would like a new powder soon, possibly Kryolan anti-shine) and a little Guerlain pressed meteorites powder in Mythic Parfait (I wanted a little glow). Blusher was from the MAC l/e Venomous Villains collection - Cruella's Darkly my Dear.

I'm still working my way through my nail polish hoard. Here is Illamasqua Lament, which they've put in a new collection called Magenta Muse. This collection is disappointing because it's all from the permanent range. In some ways I applaud Illamasqua for this as nothing ever sells out forever as with MAC. But you know... new stuff is exciting! Make new stuff guys! 
Anyway, I picked it up on sale from asos.com about two weeks ago. It's a lovely cream coral pink colour, brighter on the nail than I thought it would be from the bottle. I put a coat of Illamasqua Prism on top of a few nails just for an extra little something. Makes them look pinker, nearly neon, when it catches the light. 
My index finger appears to be dirty, looks like the hair dye to me. It seems to have stopped transferring onto everything now. Fingers crossed. I still have a black sheet wrapped around my red bedding just incase!
