Smoky Eye Series: Greens

Today’s smoky eye is featuring greens. I kind of just chose the green shades at random, looking for a dark, medium, and light shade. Interestingly, all this green on my eyes really brings out the brown in my hazel eyes. For tips on how to create a smoky eye, see this post.

This is definitely my least favorite of the smoky eye series. I’m sure that the random colors I chose had something to do with it, so I may attempt another green smoky eye at some point to redeem myself!

On a side note, I rarely wear the BE 100% Natural lipglosses by themselves because I’m just not a huge fan of the slippery texture…. and you know I love my Pretty Amazing lipcolors like there’s no tomorrow! But Lollipop is probably my favorite of the ones that I have.

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
