Soft green smokey eye FOTD using BeYu eyeshadow single

Hi everyone!

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 –

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.

Do you wear green eye shadows/ liners? What is your favorite way of sporting green eye makeup? Let me know your comments by replying below.

  1. lovely! although i still can’t get over how gorgeous your new hair looks….

  2. Ur new look is chic 🙂 i loved the eye look *as usual* 😀

  3. lovely Ankita.. 🙂 u gt a permanent straightening ?

  4. 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).

  5. woww..love love this look..you are looking gorgeous Ankita…your eyes are so beautiful.

  6. Woww your eyes look so pretty dear!! You’re so pretty too ❤ That black shadow looks interesting!!
