'Dark Greensmoke' Look

'Dark Greensmoke' Look

Hey guys! This is a smokey look that I am not loving but alas what to do. I will figure out the best way to do smokey on myself if it kills me! I used a few new eyeshadows that I just hauled and posted swatches of so if you are curious about the shades check earlier posts.

Eyes:

PRIME:
I started off with NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Greengrease Greasepaint Stick all over my lid and MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (matte beige) on my brow bone as my primary base.

COLOR:
On my inner lid I applied MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (shimmery champagne).
Next on the middle of the I applied the dark green from the Wet 'n' Wild Snow Sprite Palette (shimmery dark green).
On the outer lid and crease I applied Urban Decay Libertine Eyeshadow from the Black Palette (matte blackened green w/ shimmer).
On browbone area and for blending I used the camel color from the Wet 'n' Wild  Lust Palette (matte camel).
For my lower lashline I used Urban Decay Jet Eyeshadow from the Black Palette (matte blackened purple w/ shimmer) - OUTER and MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (shimmery champagne) - INNER.

BROWS:
My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown).

DEFINE:
I lined my upper lashline with Wet 'n' Wild Crème Eyeliner in Black.
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black.
I used MAC Opulash Mascara in Black for my lashes and added Beautee Senses Annie False Eyelashes for effect.

Lips:
POLISH:
For my lips I used MUFE #438 Lipstick (dirty coral) topped with MAC Kumquat Lipglass (shimmery orange peach).

Face:
FINISH:
I prepped my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion. I used MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC45 for my face set my t-zone with MAC Blot Powder in Dark. I used MUFE #12 Full Cover Concealer under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage Set.
I used Illamasqua Lover Blush (vibrant apricot) for my cheeks and MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour and highlight.

  8. Green is my fave color! Love this!
    I didn't think of putting the lighter green as a transition color. I'm going to def try that next x.

    I usually use
    Base (MAC Mosscape or L'Oreal Color Rich Cream Crayon in AUTHENTIC
    Mobile Lid - MAC pigment GOLDEN OLIVE
    Crease & Outer V darker side of L'Oreal HiP Duo in GUNMETAL
    L'Oreal Matte WARM BROWN as a transition to highlight.
    Can't wait to get my hands on WnW Holiday Set(s)
    Thanks so much for sharing Tina!
