Dramatic Green Smokey eye

Hello dolls!!! The title of this post pretty much explains itself. This post will feature a green smokey eye look with a nude/pale pink lip, and a highlighted/contoured face. I wanted to do a smokey eye look with vibrant colors, since it's spring, so I felt that green was a good color to play with.

Here is the look that we are going for:


  • Mary Kay Eye Primer (Primed lids and under eye area)
  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in "Milk" (Used this as a base, and applied it to my lid and under eye area.)
  • Wet n Wild "I Dream of Greenie" Color Icon trio (Used the lime green from this trio and applied it to the inner corner of my lids, as well as the inner corner of my under eye area.)
  • e.l.f 100 Piece Eyeshadow Palette (Used a bluish green eyeshadow from the palette and applied that to the rest of my lid, as well as to the rest of my under eye area. Blended the two colors where they meet, so there's a seamless transition between them. Also blended the colors into my crease.)
  • e.l.f 100 Piece Eyeshadow Palette (Took the matte black eyeshadow and blended that into the outer corner of my lid to create more depth to the eye.)
  • Wet n Wild "Vanity" Color Icon palette (Applied the matte taupe colored eyeshadow, in the center of the left side of the palette, under my brow bone.)
  • Line lid and waterline with black eye liner, and add lashes


  • MAC Lipstick "Blankety"
  • e.l.f Hypershine Gloss in "Mauve"


  • MAC ProLongwear concealer in "NW35" (Under eye concealer)
  • BH Cosmetics 10 Color Concealer Palette (Used to highlight and contour face)
  • Covergirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer in "Ebony Bronze" (Used as contour powder)
  • MAC MSF Natural in "Deep" (Used as all over face setting powder)
  • Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray (Used to seal makeup so that it lasts all day. This product claims to hold makeup in place for up to 16 hrs, which is amazing because the weather is so hot and you don't want your makeup to shift.)

That's the entire look, comment below and let me know what you think. ^.^
