Makeup of the day – Green Eyeshadow

Green is not necessarily our number 1 go-to colour when it comes to eye makeup but I think we should experiment with it a lot more. In all honesty, it is not my absolute favourite colour but I like to step out of my comfort zone every now and then so I’m going to do that today. I was admiring Kate Jane Hughes’ IG feed for the hundredth time the other day (I cannot recommend checking out her work highly enough)  and I bumped into this image:

I love how she combined the green with a bright coral lip so decided to do my own version of it. I went for brighter shades and I have to say, I wouldn’t mind wearing this look for a night out.



Here is the breakdown:


Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel, The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%, L’occitane Aqua Rèotier Ultra Thirst-Quenching Gel, Make Up For Ever Step 1 Equalizer Shade in Mauve, e.l.f Lip Scrub and plenty of By Terry Baume De Rose, The Body Shop Rose Dewy Glow Face Mist.


EX1 Invisiwear Liquid Foundation, Garnier SkinActive BB Eye Roll-On, Diorskin Forever Undercover Concealer in Shade 21 Linen all buffed together with a Real Techniques sponge.


Kiko Precision Brow Pencil in no. 4, Mac Fluidline Brow Gelcreme (I used this one just to draw in a few hairs with a tiny artist brush).


Mac Paint Pot in Painterly as a base, Mac Eyeshadow in Swimming all over the lid blended well, followed by Kiko Kajal Khol Pencil in 112 along the upper waterline and a light coat of e.l.f Length and Volume Mascara.


Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid in Pearl, Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette in Natural Beauty Shade 4. Bronze all over the face followed by Mac Pressed Amber Mineralize Blush mixed with Warm Soul Mineralize Blush and Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette in Natural Beauty Shade 7. Highlight on the top of the cheekbones.


I lined with Redd lip pencil from Mac, then pressed Red Brick eyeshadow (also from Mac) all over and a touch of Mac Lustreglass in Lustre White in the centre of the lips. The cupids bow is highlighted with a touch of By Terry Baume De Rose on top to prevent it from drying out.
