Graphic in Green!

Here's a look I came up with while having some fun with products this weekend! Greens my favourite colour and I don't think I've ever done a green look before! So here we are... hope you guys enjoy it!

1 Apply foundation all over and concealer in areas of concern. Set with a translucent powder
2 Buff bronzer through the backs of cheeks, temples and hairline and apply a pink pop of blush high on the backs of the cheekbones.
3 Use a cream eyeshadow all over the lid from lash line to just above the crease and leave the edges sharp. This creamy base will not only help our shadow stay in place, it will increase the bold pigment we place on top!
4 Press a green eyeshadow directly on top of the creamy base for strong saturated colour.
5 Use a cream eyeliner to line your upper lash line and trace through the crease around the shape you created with your shadow. Take the time to perfect your lines.
6 Use your cream eyeliner to draw a straight line under the lower lashes winged it out on both ends and keeping the gaps open on both the inner and outer corners.
7 Blend the bottom edges of your black eyeliner down and out with a black eyeshadow. Blend your original green shadow along the edge of the lower liner as well.
8 Use a glitter adhesive to apply a light green glitter to the centre of the eye, and a darker green glitter on the outer and inner thirds of the eye.
9 Blend a white cream shadow under the brow, on the inner corners of the eye, and to sharpen the edges of your flicks on the outer corners. Apply this to the waterline to further open the eyes.
10 Apply a light coat of mascara and long wispy lashes.
11 Lightly coat the lips with a neutral lip gloss!
