Hello lovelies! I hope you all had an amazing weekend and that you’re all geared up for the coming week. Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day, and I barely ever experiment with bright colors like green, so in light of the holiday spirit, I pulled out my green eyeshadows and got to work. I hope you like it!
What you need:
1) Eyeshadow Primer and translucent powder to set it.
2) Light, medium, and dark green eyeshadows
3) Bright green eyeshadow pigment
4) Medium brown and skin tone eyeshadows for blending
5) Makeup setting spray or a water spray bottle
6) Black liquid or gel liner
8) False Lashes (optional)
Get the Look:
1) Make sure your brows are groomed and filled in. I find that well groomed brows balance out bold eyeshadow looks really well. Apply a primer to your eyelids and a translucent powder over top to help the eyeshadows you layer on top blend out more easily.
2) Using a precise round-topped eyeshadow brush, apply the medium green eyeshadow to the inner corner of the eye and just on the outer half where the outer “v” is. Be sure to build the color up slowly and leave the middle part of the eye blank.
3) Using a flat shader brush, apply the light green color to the middle of the eyelid (the space that was left blank in the last step) and blend it slightly into the medium green color in the inner and outer parts of the eye.
4) Spray a bit of makeup setting spray on the flat eyeshadow brush and dip it into the bright green pigment. Pack the pigment all over the eye lid where you placed the lightest green eyeshadow. Build up the color to your desired intensity and be sure to touch up the inner and outer corners with the medium green eyeshadow and blend well.
5) Using a fluffy blending brush, apply a skin tone eyeshadow to the crease of the eye to blend out the colors. Apply the skin tone eyeshadow right under the brow bone as well.
6) Using the precise round-topped eyeshadow brush, pick up some of the darkest green shadow and apply it to the outer”v” of the eye, and blend it slightly into the crease as well.
7) Using the tip of the flat shader brush, apply the medium green eyeshadow to the lower lash line and go over it with some of the bright green pigment. Apply the darkest green eyeshadow to the outer edge of the lower lash line as well.
8) Clean off the precise round-topped eyeshadow brush, pick up some of the medium brown eyeshadow, and apply it to the outer “v” of the eye to soften the look and warm it up a bit, and also blend it into the crease of the eye as well. Using brown eyeshadows with brighter colors make the look a lot more wearable and less crazy looking!
9) Use a fluffy blending brush with some translucent powder or the skin tone eyeshadow and blend out any harsh lines. Using a gel or a liquid eyeliner, line the upper lash line and create a small wing at the outer edge of the eye.
10) Apply mascara and false lashes!
P.S. *If I were wearing this look out tomorrow, I would probably pair it with some pale pink or mauve blush and a nude lip.*
