Pleaaaaaassse excuse the weird eye ball angles shown with my step by step pictorial, l for Lillee effort :)? While doing this look it almost reminded me of my Dragonfly Smokey Eye, what make this different is the usage of gradient shimmer eyeliner and brighter tones, in case any of your were wondering! The first step to completing this look is rather “multi stepped” since I consider primer as essential as strong brows. With that being said (and as explained in the tutorial) using my Morphe G11 brush I firmly lined my top and bottom brow’s (connected at the tail end) then I flipped to the other side of the spectrum by LIGHTLY filling them in with upward brush strokes! After doing so I then moved onto the priming base, which in this case is Bobbi Brown’s Cream Eyeshadow in Bone. This stuff holds up better than Milk as a base, honestly speaking– like literally, it is so creamy yet so sticky which makes it also perfect for glitter adherence. Since I had a bit of dipbrow product that slipped out of bounds, using my Urban Decay Vice 3 brush (pointy side) I brushed the cream across the bottom of my brows and on my lids! As you might of guessed, I then proceeded to blending it in. Excess was applied and smudged under my lower lash line!
Thrash has been tempting me for a while, it is such a unique acid green! Since this is a pressed pigment, a dense brush is preferred such as a Mac 239 brush. This will help pick up THE MOST product without using too much, hopefully that made sense HAHA! Using firm patting motions I gently dragged the green across my lid in a few builded up layers. Don’t be a afraid to go all out with this color, it should be seen not hindered! The next shade of concern is from R7.C2, it is a light olive with strong bright green notes, the olivy green contrasts amazing with the acid like green shade. Since this is only the transitional shade I decided to opt in for my super fluffy Sephora #27 Brush! I gently blended in the color using wide side to side motions, only occasionally was the motion of circles used, I try to avoid them because it concentrates color too much. To deepen things up while keeping the vibrant drama in tact I then chose the color R7.C8, a deep yet lightened forrest green! Using my Mac 217 brush I eased this color nicely into the inner V of my eye with fluent side to side motions, I prefer to use the tactic of patting the shade on the outer third of my lid first THEN smoothing it inwards following the natural creasing of my eye socket. Although this shade was added towards the end, the last color added in the crease is R8.C11, it is very much a black! With the same 217 brush I heavily concentrated this into the inner inner V of my eye with very slight blending motions. Don’t be afraid to build up pigment with this, the more the better!
Now onto the tricky yet quite fun part! First off, make sure your white eyeliner of choice is completely clean, we want the winged eyeliner marking to be as pure as possible this way it takes mold of the colors already present. With that being the case, using a cleaned Sephora #20 brush I dipped into the tip of Milk and created a thick cat eyeliner line across my upper lash line- that is a lot of line’s, my apologies madame/monsieur. From that line I then began packing on the pigments starting from the tail end with Nori, from Nori I then packed on Tipsy, from Tipsy the shade Mint Soda, and from Mint Soda the gorgeous duo chrome, Lumi! Lumi also was taken in the inner corners of my eye for some extra pazazz. Once the upper lash line was set I then quickly wet my Mac Creme Liner and lined my upper+lower waterlines heavily, I made sure to slightly smudge it under my lower lash line for added drama! Speaking of added drama, the forrest green shade makes it’s mark again- the color was smudged right under my lower lash as well as smudged into Tipsy.
