Soft green eye look

Soft green eye look - Makeup-Pixi3

Soft green eye look - looking down

Soft green eye look - straight on

I promise you there's no filters on this - it's just a very low f-stop on the camera and some over-exposure :)

So I've been at it again creating another look - this is actually a bit of a go-to look for me which is why I thought I'd share it.  It's what I'd consider to be a very wearable green look.  There's 2 reasons I think it's super wearable, firstly because the liquid liner is only on the eye lid and not under the eye, and because it's not too dark in colour.  Once again, as with any look you do, or I do, it's all about blending, and adding little bits of colour and building on it.

Here's what I used:

Urban Decay Vice 2 palette, Maybelline quad in Spiced Cinnamon, Makeup Revolution kohl* & flick liner, Revlon bold lacquer mascara, Urban Decay primer potion in eden, and Benefit Browzings & Gimme Brow.

Here's how I used it:

After you've filled in your brows, prime your lid with your eye shadow primer (for me, this was the UD primer potion in eden).  

Then take the Maybelline Smoky Cinnamon quad, and apply the lime green colour to the inner third of the lid by patting it on.  Then, go to the Vice 2 palette and the shade 'Stash' it's a mossy green colour that's quite flakey.  Pat this on the rest of the lid.  Then take a clean blending brush and blend it all in including the edges.

Once you've done that, go back to the Maybelline quad and go to the dark green shade with a fluffy blending brush (I used the one in the Vice 2 palette) and blend it through the crease and outer V. Once you've done that, take the cinnamon shade in the Maybelline quad, and blend a small amount on the outer edge of the green (like in my pic) just to give the look at little warmth.

I then took the dark green from the Maybelline quad and blended it under the waterline. Added some kohl liner to my waterline, liquid liner to the base of my lashes with a cat-eye flick and 2 coats of mascara.  Oh and before I forget, I added a highlight just under the brow bone, this was the shade 'Dope' from the Vice 2 palette.

The rest:
On the rest of the face I used...

Neve face primer*
Makeup Forever HD foundation
Makeup Revolution anti-shine balm*
Makeup Revolution the One fluid blusher in 'Desire'*

So there you have it! Don't forget to keep checking back for more looks, I'm going to try to create and upload a look every week if I can, maybe more often (depends on how much time I get to do it with the baby).  I hope you've enjoyed this look, feel free to request some below in the comments :)  It's a lovely break from writing reviews :)


  1. Pretty eye look x

  2. Such a pretty eye make up look! Khaki shadows are my favourite! x

  3. This is so pretty. You're right - it is very wearable, without being boring. x

  4. Love the look you created, especially with the liner. I really like the colors in the Vice 2 palette, although out of the Vice's I only have Vice 3, which is amazing x
