Lillee Jean 2016 Twinkling Green, Bronze, and Gold Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial
After completing this makeup look, I finally came to the realization that greens bring out my eyes like NO OTHER shade on this earth! Isn’t it bizarre, since bronzes and coppers are the traditional shades for blue eyes? Perhaps it’s a complementary thing! Anyhow, for today I have in store a super shimmery green and bronze eye makeup look that even intermediate makeup lovers can recreate. I truly hope you beauties enjoy, and WELCOME new love bunnies!

As a reference point, the eye makeup presented above RESEMBLES my Fruity Green & Peach Tutorial. Be sure to check that out for not only variations, but a different perspective of blending and application styles! How does this differ? One, warmer tones were used, and two SHIMMERS are prevalent throughout the whole darn thing! To begin I softly filled my brows in by using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade. I tend to go for much more natural fills, than most with dramatic arches and such! Do what looks best for your face shape, after all, brows define everything. To lay out the groundwork for the many shadows to come, I dusted Spice by Morphe Brushes across my lids and up into my crease with a E22 Pointed Blender! Look at this shade as not only a transitional, but a base. For added dimension I switched brushes to a M433, and shadows to Mousse, as well as Hot Fudge from the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Pallet! Both were softly eased throughout my crease with swift side to side blends concentrated towards the outer v (outer third of lid, too) of my eyes. Be sure to work in LIGHT layers, that means build up pigment as you! Especially with eye makeup tutorials leaning a bit more classy, and less smokey, you must gauge the depth of your shadows. With this much control, anything is possible.
Have a happy Wednesday my loves, XOXO!
