I love green! It is so fresh and unexpected. Especially when paired with teal, a delightful blend of green and blue. This look begins with Color Elation Loose Pigment in Lagoon applied on the middle and outer ends of the lids. Leave the inner lid open. Take Color Elation 5 Color Palette in Meadow. That middle shade is the most vibrant chartreuse. Apply that to the inner lid and around the tear duct.
The second shade from the left is a rich leafy green. Apply this to the lid and smoke the corners with the darkest green. To finish the top of the eye, apply the most dramatic black cat eye line with your favorite liquid or cream liner and apply the longest, fluffiest lashes. For the bottom, apply black pencil to the water line and a green pencil under the bottom lash line. Set that green pencil with the leafy green shadow for vibrancy and long wear. Generously apply mascara to the bottom lashes. I wanted the eyes to stand out so the blush and lips were kept neutral: Color Elation Pressed Blush in Rosy Brown and Liquid to Matte Lipstick in Naked.
I hope you enjoyed this look. Please leave a comment on your love of green. Thanks for joining me!
The quintessential neutral look. I paired this eye look with a nude cheek and lip, but you can go bold or bright and it would be awesome! I created a gradient effect with Color Elation 5 Color Eye Shadow Palette in Sterling. The frosted white was applied generously in the inner corner and around the tear duct. The silver shade (to the left of the white) is dazzling! That shade is applied on the lid with a dampened brush to bring out the metallic quality out even more. Next, I layered the last three grays from lighter to the very darkest in the outer corners and crease so the smoke smoulders the outer corners. Dark gray rims the bottom and the light gray under that to soften the line. A bold cat eye would work great, but I took the darkest black pencil and smudged the upper lid and bottom waterline. Lashes with fullness on the ends perfectly complimented the look. Color Elation Pressed Blush in Rosy Brown gives a soft, warm flush and Liquid to Matte Lipstick in Bombshell adds a soft pink lip.

If you have not tried the Halo Effect when applying eye shadow, do it soon. This technique places darker shades in the inner and outer corners and bridges them together in the crease and places a spotlight shade in the center lid. The effect creates a rounder, larger eye that is so flattering!
For this look, I took two of my favorite colors, purple and gold and finished the look with nude pink blush and lip color. Color Elation 5 Color Palette in Regal begins the look. Take the bright raspberry shade (in the center) and apply with a fluffy brush in the crease. There are two dark plums in the palette. The lighter of them was applied in the inner and outer crease, then layered with the darkest shade for gradual intensity. The center of the lid was left empty. For this area, a flat shading brush was dampened with mixing medium and dipped generously into the center shade of the Statuette palette. This bright gold was gently patted over the empty space. Reapply darker shades and gold as and if needed to create balance. Dark plum and raspberry are applied to the lower lash line. The darkest black liquid liner creates a bold cat eye. To let the eyes stand out, a subtle nude pink finishes the face: Color Elation Pressed Blush in Rosy Brown and Liquid to Matte Lipstick in Flirt.
