Lillee Jean Glittery Emerald Green Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial New Years Eve 2016
When you think of New Year's Eve, what colors, and, makeup styles strike you the most? Perhaps shimmering champagnes, and uber-dark smokey eyes? Being I’ve already presented the unusual to you beauties these past few weeks holiday makeup-wise, I’ve decided to turn things up with a beautiful jewel tone of emerald paired with a BEYOND smokey eye finish.
A good New Years Eve makeup look begins with a priming base! Whether you choose an actual primer, or a simple moisturizer, it’s needed my loves. I personally went with my typical Shea Moisture 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, and made sure to adequately spread the oily substance across all the four main planes of my face by using soothing massaging motions! Be sure to NOT miss the hairline, as well as on your actual eyelids– it’ll save you the stress later, and cause you to use less product in the long run. Once my canvas was prepped, I moved along to evening out my complexion with the Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Foundation, in 14 Ivory Medium! I haven’t used this baby in quite some time, so it was actually fun revisiting old holy grail products. Be that as it may, with exactly one pump of the product placed center of the back of my hand, I swirled into the foundation with a Morphe M439 Brush, and began buffing the peachy tone across my skin starting from my left cheek, working clockwise to my forehead. Light stipples tend to work best for me, but if you have noticeable blemishes, feel free to use more concentrated, and pressurized blends! For a soft glow, that is anything but demure, I brushed on Becca’s Moonstone, and kept an eye on the exact areas light naturally hits my skin (cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose, and faintly on my cupid’s bow), to ensure a disco-ball finish would not be yielded! Choosing a lip color was actually quite simple, because emerald green works best with peach. Since I DID NOT want a matte lip, rather something in between a gloss, and a stain, I chose Dose of Colors Lipgloss in Bellini! Try scratching the lip color to make the golden flecks more noticeable, then reapply to restore the glossy sheen.
