Hello my lovelies!
I hope you are all doing well! I am personally a little stressed and feeling pressed for time, but knowing that I am only three weeks away from graduating and on my way to being a fully licensed esthetician does provide some sense of comfort.
I know I’ve done this look almost verbatim in the past and called it Emerald, but I am always a fan of improvement and looking at progress as I’ve mentioned in other blog posts. Plus, I love a Smokey look with a dark mossy green ay day of the week.
Are there any other gemstones and precious stones that you would all like to see? What is your birthstone? Do you identify with your assigned birthstone? Mine is a diamond and while I do like diamonds, I would have loved to have something of the pink variety.
Let’s Get Started:
- Prime the eyes with a primer or concealer that you prefer.
- Warm up the crease with the first brown shadow, blending from outer to inner corner and diffusing toward the brow bone.
- Define the deepest part of the crease with “Lula”, concentrating most of the shadow on the outer corner and blending slightly toward the brow bone.
- Task any black shadow and press onto the outer corner of the eyelid into a v shape. Carefully blend the edges of the shadow without extending the black too far toward the tail of the brow.
- Wet a packing brush and place “Bronx” across the inner half of the lid, meeting up with the black shadow. Lightly diffuse the edges once “Bronx” has dried down.
- Take more black shadow and continue to darken and define the outer corner of the eye according to your own preference.
- Lightly pack the fourth shadow on top of “Bronx” to create dimension and multidimension.
- Line the lower lashline with a black liner.
- Blend out the liner with a very light amount of black eyeshadow, focusing the majority of the shadow on the outer corner and diffusing toward the inner corner.
- Line the waterline with the black liner.
- Highlight the tear duct with the fifth shadow.
- Curl and coat your lashes with mascara. Apply falsies if you would like.
