Feeling like Spring Green Eye Look

green3It has been GORGEOUS outside lately (meaning above 20 and real live sunshine). I’m in the spring spirit and have been gravitating toward brights for a few weeks now. I decided to put this Coastal Scents 36 Smoky Palette to use since quite honestly, I hadn’t used before this! Still, aren’t the colors lovely? The quality is decent for a palette of this size. I also used a new MAC pigment, Lily White. This is currently sold out online, but you may be able to find it at counters.

I also used the blue eyeliner pencil from Chella in the shade ‘Indigo’, that came in my Ipsy bag this month. I have to say that I am impressed with it.

Here’s what I did to create this look. The shades I used are marked with an X. It’s very easy!

1- First, I applied the shimmery green shade all over the lid (I did use a primer first).

2- Next, I picked up a little of the Lily White pigment and sprayed some MAC Fix+ onto it. Then, I started working from the inner corner of my eye into the middle.

3- After packing on a little more of the shimmery green color, I used a fluffy blending brush to blend away the line, making them mesh more.

4- With the same fluffy brush, I picked up a bit of the matte brown color and blended very lightly into the crease.

5- Taking another shadow brush, I blended the matte Kelly green shade on the lower lash line and up around the outside of the eye to meet the other shadows, staying close to the lash line.

6- With the same fluffy brush, I picked up a bit of the matte white color and blended over the brow bone, and touched up any areas that didn’t seem blended enough.

7- Using the Chella liner, I lined the upper lash line only.

8- Finally, I applied a pair of Red Cherry 747s lashes, which are very subtle.

I’m definitely planning on using this palette more this spring; the possibilities are endless! 🙂
