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)ย  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:

Prep:

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel, The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%, Lโ€™occitane Aqua Rรจotier 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.

Base:

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.

Eyebrows:

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).

Eyes:

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.

Cheeks

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.

Lips:

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.
