FOTD and Tutorial: Easy Gold and Green
I MISSED YOU ALL! Been a bit busy lately, I haven't had time to sit and just write away. Anyway, today's post is something I had planned but wasn't able to post months ago. No matter, though, because the gold and green color theme of this simple (and very easy, if I might add) makeup look is perfect for the upcoming holiday!
I'm not even kidding when I say that this eye look is very easy to achieve. The technique is the simplest ever! No fancy blending required ;)
Sported this look when I went to get my hair permed for the first time, by the way (*my post about that here*). Took the photos before heading out, obviously. My hair's still straight here, oh. The theme was 'Korean Style.' As far as I knew, Korean makeup was all about dewy skin, eyeliner and neutral lips. I decided to spice things up by using a bit of color. I chose emerald because the San San eyeshadow in Emerald Green was just so hard to resist!
Read on to know what products I used and how to achieve this very simple eye makeup!
For the face, I used:
Ever Bilena Studio Finish Stick Foundation in Creme
dreamGirl 4U2 Lovelight BB Powder in 02
For the brows, I used:
Etude House Easy Brow Pencil in 04
In2it Waterproof Eyebrow Powder in 01 Eyebrowns
For the cheeks, I used:
San San Cheek Blusher in Rosy Blush
For the lips, I used:
Snoe Rouge Deluxe Lipstick in Vintage Rose
Now, for the eyes...
I used the following:
ELF Eyelid Primer
San San single eyeshadows in Emerald Green and Yellow Topaz
San San Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in Black
Ever Bilena HD Eye Pencil in Black
Maybelline The Magnum Mascara
Virginia Olsen short shader brush
Beauty Cosmetics pencil brush
Ever Bilena eyeshadow brush
Here's a step-by-step guide on how I did the complete eye makeup.
|Apply eyelid primer to keep make the eyeshadows appear |
more vibrant and keep them from creasing for longer.
|Using a short eye shader brush, pat on the emerald color on the lid, |
keeping the color below the crease to give a thick-eyeliner effect.
|Using a small blending brush or a pencil brush, soften the harsh edges.|
|Apply gold eyeshadow on the lower lash line using a stiff eyeshadow brush.|
|Line your lower lash line softly using a black pencil.|
|Line the upper lash line, too.|
|Curl your lashes.|
|Finally, apply mascara to your upper and lower lashes.|
And you're done! See? I told you it was just easy! No need to be a pro in eyeshadow application for this ;) You can mix and match the colors too, of course.
I'll show you next time how I use the same technique with neutral shades like San San's Charcoal Brown eyeshadow, which I SUPER DUPER love, by the way. Ooh, and coming up next is a holiday-themed nail look! Hope you stay tuned for that ;)
