Galactic – 17 Starry Eyes Trio Eyeshadow Look

I was trying to create a nice green look when I came across my Starry Eyes Trio, I was due to go out with the other half but in the end he ended up working late so this look went to was. Pity really because the pigment and sparkle this eye trio give off really are gorgeous. The Starry Eyes selection comes in 4 shades: Starstruck, Moon Dust, Neptune and the one I have which is Galactic.
