Until I turned 40, my makeup routine was pretty limited.
I would wear basically anything in the brown family on my eyes.
And, some shade of pink on my lips.
Over the past few years, I’ve thrown caution to the wind…
I have branched out a LOT more, to include deep red and burgundy lips,
Along with bold and colorful eye shadows. (I know, I know, what a rebel!)
It IS hard to step out of you makeup comfort zone.
I know it was for me, but once you do…
It opens a whole, fun new world of beauty.
One newly discovered beauty look…a smokey green eye.
This really makes blue, green and hazel eyes pop!
Keep scrolling to see ALL products I used to create this look.
Step 1 | Cover Lid with Highlight Color
After moisturizing, priming, and lining the lid (slightly) with a black liquid liner…
I put the lightest (highlight) shade in the YSL couture palette #8 all over the lid.
(Up to the brow)
Step 2 | Darkest Green in Crease
I put the darkest green shade in the crease to add definition to the eye…
And blended it all the way to my eye socket.
Step 3 | Light Green on Lid
Next, I put a beautiful lighter shade of green all over the lid to the crease…
And blended it into the crease.
Step 4 | Line Eye with Darkest Green
I took the same shade of dark green that I used for my crease, and lined my eye with it.
I lined both the upper and lower lid, even onto the water line on the lower lid.
I winged out the dark green slightly to blend it into the original crease.
Step 5 | Use Bright Green to Line Lower Lid
I used the lightest green in the palette and lined under my eye.
(Be sure to line under the dark green line)
Step 6 | Add Gold To The Corners
Next, I added the gold highlighting shade to the corner of my eyes,
lining both the upper and lower lids slightly.
Step 7 | Add Mascara
The final steps… curl the lashes and add a great mascara!
What Else Did I Use?
And, in case you were wondering about foundation…
I used the really light, YSL touche éclat foundation so my skin would look fresh, youthful and glowy.
This foundation is awesome if you like light, natural coverage.
