Wearable Green Eye Look and Tutorial Using Mineral Eyeshadows
Here is one of my favorite green looks. The reason why I like it is because it is quite wearable to the point that it can probably pass for neutrals. I even wore it at work in a conservative office environment and it blended right in. I like the combination of the light green with olive greens. I used Aromaleigh eyeshadows but you can substitute other mineral or even pressed eye shadows or pigments. I can't believe I don't have full sizes of these eyeshadows yet, so I will be purchasing full size jars before Aromaleigh closes.
Here is a step-by-step. All products Aromaleigh unless otherwise stated.
Apply Urban Decay primer potion in Sin all over lid and lower lashline. Using a fluffy shader brush, apply MAC Mosscape paint pot on lid.
Using a stiff shader brush or the MAC 239, apply Dragon dry on lid in patting motions.
Using the same brush, apply Tangleroot on outer V.
Using the same brush, apply Splintered on crease and outer V, blending into Tangleroot. Blend with the 224 brush.
Apply more Splintered if necessary to deepen the crease. Blend harsh edges using the 224 brush. Line upper lashline using the L'Oreal Lineur Intense liquid liner (felt tip) in Black.
Tightline using Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on pencil in Zero. Apply MAC Chromagraphic Pencil in NW25/NC30 on waterline. Apply Rosina on browbone using the Stila No. 5 brush to highlight. Using the Sonia Kashuk mini-detail brush, apply Dragon on inner lower lashline and Drama Queen liner in Green on outer lower lashline. Apply mascara.
