A Classic Take On Emerald

Before the year runs out...

A light colour on the lid, mid tone through the crease, and natural defining eyeliner is a classic go-to shape when paired with neutrals. For a trendy take on a classic, I used the same flattering shapes with a fun pop of colour!

Pro Tip
To make the eye appear more open, keep the inner corner light with an irridescent shadow and bracket your eyeliner on the outer corners of the eye only!

MJ Inspired Cut Crease

You guys know I'm a sucker for a mod 60's look so naturally I had to put my own spin on this Marc Jacobs Beauty promo image.

Pro Tip
Lightly filling in your brows with a pencil or powder will keep a dramatic makeup like this looking grounded and polished. Without the brow grooming the makeup is noticeably incomplete and can start to look messy.
