Party look #3 : Green Smokey eyes and coral lips

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing an intense green smokey eye look. I’ve paired the green smokey eyes with soft coral lip color and bronzer on cheeks.

Summary of the look :

On a well moisturized face, apply foundation and set with powder. For the eyes, use a black smudgy pencil(or kohl) on entire lid as base and apply green eye shadow all over lid, blend it with a blending brush in the crease. Apply heavy kohl on waterline and lower lash line and smudge it with the green eyeshadow. Apply peachy golden highlighter on brow bone and inner corners and finish with mascara. Use bronzer on the cheeks and apply coral- peach lipstick on the lips.

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.
