Soft green smokey eye FOTD using BeYu eyeshadow single
This is a soft green smokey eye look I did today using BeYu eyeshadow single #114 . I have paired this eye makeup with peachy pink blush with a little bronzer on the cheekbones and a peach-brown lipstick.
Green color by itself is symbolic of nature, life and freshness. When worn as eye liners or shadows green/blue shades add a pop of color to the face and are a welcome change from the monotony of black/brown/grey liners.
I’d been looking for a forest green shade without any yellow/grey/khaki undertone and my search ended at the BeYu counter where I found the perfect green I’d been looking for. Its a vibrant true forest green shade with frost finish.
This is the final look –
Products used :
1. BeYu eye base (not shown in picture)
2. Revlon eye liner crayon ‘black’
3. BeYu single eye shadow #114 (forest green shade)
4. Maybelline chai latte quad (for crease color and highlighter)
4. Lotus herbals kajal
5. Maybelline colossal volume mascara
6. Faces eye shadow brush
1. Apply eye primer all over lid upto the brow.
2. Apply black crayon pencil all over lid and smudge using third finger.
3. Apply green eye shadow shade all over lid.
4. Using a fluffy brush , apply dark brown shade to crease and blend.
5. Apply highlight shade under brow bone and blend with crease color using some loose powder.
6. Apply kajal on waterline. Using angular/smudging brush loaded with the green eye shadow, smudge the kajal onto the lower lash line.
7. Lastly, apply mascara to upper and lower lashes.
Products used for face :
Products used for lips:
For the lips I have mixed 2 shades here : Maybelline moisture extreme ‘Chocolate Temptation‘(light brown with pink/peach undertone) and Chambor Truly lasting ‘Truly brownsugar ‘(true brown shade)
The final look (the green is more pigmented than how it appears here)
I find darker shades of green very flattering for dark hair/dark eyes combination. For a more colorful and bold look- wear lime green+dark green combo or green+blue combo on the eyes. A soft dark green smokey eye with dark brown on the outer corner and crease is something that’ll suit everyone and a great way to sport a subtle yet colorful eye makeup.

lovely! although i still can’t get over how gorgeous your new hair looks….
Thank you so much Anks! I’m loving my new hairdo 🙂 Plus it looks nicer with the flash adding an extra shine 😛
Ur new look is chic 🙂 i loved the eye look *as usual* 😀
Thanks Shalini! This is my first experiment with green. Darker shades are always safe..I’m thinking of trying out something more bold..lime green perhaps? 😛
lovely Ankita.. 🙂 u gt a permanent straightening ?
Thanks Zeeba 🙂 Ya I got permanent straightening..its actually ‘smoothening’ which is similar, only the end result is not poker straight hair but something closer to natural looking straight hair.
ohhhh///// Its looking nice…
Loving your new hair style. I love green, but I’m not much into eye shadows (I have 1 quad & 1trio). I like your look though.
Thank you Poohkie! I love using green liners too..Which eye shadows do you have?
I have Maybelline chai latte & a chambor trio in lilac (which I got in a giveaway :P). I’d been thinking of buying more, but I decided against it. At least until I actually start wearing the ones I have on a regular basis.
Maybelline chai latte is so useful. I always use its matte brown crease color and browbone highlight shade for whatever look I do. I have Chambor trio is ‘Mystic’ and I really like it. I think till you’re not really into eye shadows, you can make it work with an everyday trio/quad and 1 for special occasions/functions (like one with a basic golden/bronze shades which will go with everything).
woww..love love this look..you are looking gorgeous Ankita…your eyes are so beautiful.
That’s very sweet..Thanks Rakhshanda 🙂
