Hey guys! It's been a while since I shared a personal makeup look so I thought I'd share one today that I've been loving lately!
This look is perfect for festive holiday parties and get-togethers. I wanted to do something a little more creative than the standard smokey eye so I incorporated rich olives, emeralds, and blacks into this soft emerald smokey eye. I hope you enjoy!
Must Haves for This Look:
- Bare Minerals "The Scenic Route" Duo
- Emerald/Jade Eye Liner
- Eye Primer
"The Scenic Route" is the most wearable green shade I have ever seen! If you're skeptical about branching out into the green family, I would highly suggest this duo. It is a duo chrome which means it has two colors that can be detected in different lighting. Once the green shade is blended out, it makes a gorgeous light mossy brown transition into the crease.
A Jade or Emerald green eye liner is ideal for this look since the green in "The Scenic Route" is more on the neutral side. Adding a true bright green to the lower lash line will make the green noticeable without overdoing the entire eyes.
If you're planning on wearing this at a party or special event, definitely be sure to apply some kind of eye primer to the lids to ensure the shadows stay on all night and don't crease.
