Happy St. Patricks Day MYD loves!
I’m so happy to share another day to night makeup look with you guys! These are some of my favorite looks to create because I don’t know about you, but I don’t always have an extra hour to spend on my makeup. This is a quick and easy way to transform your day makeup into an emerald green smokey eye!
So this is a very simple look for a day time look. I did my makeup exactly like I do on a day to day basis. All I did was add a green shadow to my lower lash line! I did add a very tiny amount to my outer corner as well. I have pretty oily skin and some texture, so I’ll list the products that are included in my every day makeup routine! To start off I use the Porefessional primer by Benefit. Since my skin is oily I have big pores and this primer does an amazing job at really making my skin look a lot smoother. I use Kat Van D foundation, Tarte Shape Tape concealer, Laura Mercier translucent setting powder, & the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette to contour my face. To finish off my face I go in with a little bit of Hoola bronzer from Benefit, blush from Urban Decay (I usually mix a few colors together), and my go to highlight is Champagne Pop by Becca!
Moving on to the eyes… on a typical day I tend to just put a nice warm brown shade in my entire crease and highlight my inner corner. That’s exactly what I did to create this look too! But, I added a slightly darker brown shade to my outer corner with a touch of a dark green shadow! To finish off the eye I smudged a lighter green shadow on my lower lash line. Oh and you can’t forget about brows! I used the same shade I use as my inner corner highlight for my brow bone. As always I used the Anastasia Brow Wiz to fill in my brows.
To transform this look into a night time look only takes a few steps! I used the same dark brown shadow in the outer crease to really smoke it out. I also brought that same shade down to connect with the light green shadow that is on my lower lash line. I then went into my Makeup Forever Artist Shadow Palette and used the emerald green glitter shadow in the shade ME-302. I applied this all over the lid. After applying this I realized I needed a little more, so I went into my Sonia Kashuk Gems and Jewels Palette and added that emerald green shadow on top. This definitely made a huge difference. To finish up I added a touch of a gold glitter shadow to my inner corner. There’s a gold glitter in both of the palettes that work great!
I added a very thin line of gel eyeliner on my lash line and also tight lined. I used Pur cosmetics Fully Charged mascara to bring it all together! A pair of false lashes would look great with this look too. I kept a nude lip for both the day and night look just because I really wanted to focus to be on the emerald green eye!
