Earth Day Special Double Tutorial

Happy Earth Day!
In conjunction with Earth Day, I have for you a wearable green eyeshadow tutorial. Though I wore it for daytime, it's also appropriate for a night event when paired with a stronger lip color.

There's another tutorial after the jump, featuring a fresh weekend look with a bit of teal sneaked in.

On the top lid I had a gradient of yellow to green to dark green -- Shu Uemura  M Yellow 350, MAC Wondergrass and Urban Decay Libertine. On the bottom lash line I had shades of blue -- MAC Electro Sky, MAC Sea & Sky and Urban Decay Sabbath.

After prepping the lid with an eyeshadow primer (UDPP), apply a medium green (Wondergrass) onto 3/4th of the lid. Then, smoke out the outer corner with a deep green (Libertine). Blend the colors together with a blending brush and apply a medium brown to blend out the crease. Add yellow (M Yellow 350) to the inner corner and blend it into the green.

On the bottom lash line, layer a medium blue (Electro Sky) and darken in between the roots of the lashes with a dark blue (Sabbath). Brighten up the inner portion of the bottom lash line with a frosty blue (Sea & Sky). Thinly line the upper lash line with a black gel eyeliner and apply a beige highlight eyeshadow under the brows.

Complete the look by applying several coats of mascara and filling in the eyebrows.


This look uses colors that are a little less boring than weekday browns but it's still very light. It's easy to wear for a casual day out when you simply don't want to have piles of makeup on.

Apply a burnt coral shade (MAC Cut to Fit) up to the crease. Just below the crease, pat on a brighter shade (MAC Straw Harvest) just below the crease to make the lid stand out. Blend out the crease area with a sheer coral shade (MAC Tete-a-Tint). On the lower lash line, I've smudged on a dark teal eye pencil (Stage Teal Theater).

Vanity is an addiction: LOL! With Body Shop highly promoting being earth-friendly and "100% vegetarian" I can understand that :p Thanks!
