How To Wear Green Eyeshadow Part 1

Green eyeshadow can be daunting sometimes. Not just green eyeshadow but any colour really that's not the usual brown, cream, taupe, brown. Once upon a time I used to love to experiment with colour but then I became a little bit boring (cue Mum) but that's about change. A beautiful friend of mine told me that she wished she knew how to apply makeup so that she can be a little bit more adventures! So you can all thank her for this wonderful idea and I hope you enjoy this little "tutorial"

  • Apply a primer and light coloured eyeshadow all over your lid and highlight the brow bone 
  • Take a transition colour (usually a matt mid brown) and apply that to your crease and outer V and blending it out.
  • Apply the green eyeshadow on the inner corners of the eyelid blending it out towards the centre of the eyelid and blending it together with the transition colour. Apply some the the inner half of the lower lash line. 
  • Take a darker brown colour and apply that to the outer V and blend it really well with the green and transition colour. Add some to the outer lower lash line and blend it in with the green colour. 
  • Use an eyeliner to draw a small wing eyeliner and pop some onto the outer corner of the bottom lash line. 
  • Apply a few coats of mascara. If you want to make this look pop apply some fake eyelashes.
