Tutorial Using Green Minerals

I haven't used green minerals in quite a while (in fact, I think I used Lumiere's Cat's Eye here for the first time), but I love how pigmented these eyeshadows turned out. I also love My Minerals Bath and Body's (MMBB) Smokey Green. The name may be simple but it really gave this look a smokified dimension.


Apply MAC Beige-ing shadestick all over lid, brows and browbone, blend everything using middle finger. Apply shadestick on lower lashline as well. Using a shader brush, foil Lumiere Cat's Eye using MAC mixing medium on lid.


Using the same damp shader brush used in applying Cat's Eye, apply Fyrinnae Elven Dagger on outer half of lid.


Apply Valerie Beauty Anahata on outer lid using shame shader brush.


Using MAC 222 tapered blending/crease brush, apply MMBB Smokey Green on crease, blending into outer V.


This is how it should look so far. If you want it more smokey, you can add more Smokey Green like I did.


Apply MAC Ricepaper on inner corners traveling upwards to the browbone, blending harsh edges. Apply liner, mascara, fill in brows, apply falsies (used Red Cherry #503), apply MAC Blacktrack fluidline over lashline. Apply Cat's Eye on inner half of lower lid, and Anahata on outer half of lower lid.

this is a really pretty look - I need to start playing with the few green eyeshadows I have :) what's your opinion of Fyrinnae e/s? I ordered a bunch of them (Eleven Dagger included) but have a few more weeks to wait for them to arrive =T

chris, sutil- thank you! :)

mayaari: I like Fyrinnae e/s, very pigmented, and I like how inexpensive the samples are. I just don't feel that the wait (35-45 business days) to get your order processed is worth it.
