Hey faithful blog followers. I don’t know if you have noticed this, but when it comes to my make up looks I try to keep them neutral. I don’t add a lot of blues or greens to the mix very often, even though as a red head I can. Just to switch it up a bit, I am going to do just the opposite. Today I am devoting an entire post to green!
Here we go. Get your face, cleaned, moisturized and primed and meet me in front of the mirror. I have already added my concealer and am ready to start the color play.
Normally, I would tell you to start with a lighter shade on the inner eye to the outer, but because I want to keep the shades vibrant I start by applying the darker tone to the outer corner of my eye. Use a heavier hand at the corner and apply lighter and lighter towards the inner eye. I am doing a full lid application, but if you are shy with bright colors you can apply from the lash line towards the crease only.
I start at the inner corner of my eye and apply this color liberally as I sweep it across towards the middle of my lid. The colors will start to blend a bit, but that is fine. For this look you don’t want clean breaks in the colors.
The last color I am going to add is Covergirl Golden Sunrise. I actually had not intended to buy and use all Covergirl products, but sometimes it is hard to find good color blends in vibrant tones when jumping between product lines. I use all types of products and am not trying to sell you on Covergirl. By all means, find colors you like from any manufacturer that you wish to purchase from.
Note that not every one is going to be able to do green eyeshadow. Pick a vibrant color palette that works for your skin and hair color. Blues, purples, greens; really any gem tones that you want to play with should compliment color, not steal the spotlight. Enhancement is the key.
I hope you like this look. It isn’t for everyone and I wish I had a better camera to show you these application processes, but if I had a nickel for every time I wished I had better equipment, then I would have enough money to have better equipment. 😀
Thanks for reading!
