Have been a while since I have created a look with greens, so today it shall be. This is a very simple look to replicate. Simply follow the steps below if you wish to do so, you don’t even have to use the same products.
I started off by patting YSL’s Water-Resistant Eyeshadow in Golden Fern on my eye lids. Blend the edges to soften and apply Illamasqua’s Powder Eyeshadow in Moan. Moan is a powdery-matte olive-green colour. By layering a matte eyeshadow on top of a shimmering base, a “duo-tone 3 dimensional” hue will emerge. You can even use a black or brown base to create this effect.
To enhance the depth of my eyes, I used MAC’s Pigment in Bloodline, dry. I dipped my brush into the pot, picked up a little pigment and tap off the excess. Remember to do so when using pigments or any loose eyeshadows, fall outs are too messy to deal with especially when it’s a dark colour. Gently go along the outer corners of my eyes and into the crease.
I lined my eyes with a green liquid eyeliner on top and a green pencil eyeliner at the bottom. Smudged my bottom eyeliner with Moan. Try to smudge it slightly lower than usual to create the perfect soft, smoky eyes.
Applied MAC’s Mineralize Blush in Utterly Game under my cheekbones. It doubles up as a shading tool in this case. Also helped to slim down my face a little and defined my cheekbones.
Finish off with a creamy midtone taupe lipstick and gloss it up with a slightly pink-taupe tinted lipglass.
That’s it really, very simple and hope you like it.
