Glitter Look #2 - Emerald Disco

And here we go again... GLITTER!!:)) This is a smokey, dramatic, festive look for New Years, or any holiday you want! I didn't really have a specific inspiration for this, I just kinda put it together in my head, and I think it came out pretty good!
Here it is...:)

Products I used on my eyes to get this look were:

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in "Milk"
  • BH Cosmetics 120 palette 2nd edition
  • Sleek Makeup eyeshadow palette in "Me Myself and Eye"
  • NYX Glitterati Glitter Creme Palette
  • Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Gel Creme Liner for Green Eyes
  • NYX Felt Tip Liner in "Jet Black"
  • Mascara:) (Ulta brand)
Quick low-down of how YOU can get this look!
  1. Apply primer and/or base.
  2. Apply a silver shadow from the inner corner  to the first third or half of the lid.
  3. Apply a deep forest-y green (or whatever shade you want) to the second half of the lid.
  4. Take a black shadow (matte or shimmer - doesn't matter, I used both! :P ) and lightly take it from the outer corner up into your crease and bring it about three quarters of the way over (in your crease, above the green).
  5. BLEND! Blend the green and the black very well, should create a smokey effect (DUH!).
  6. Apply a shimmery copper/tan/taupe color above the black that's in your crease to soften it and graduate the color change more.
  7. Apply a cream - colored shimmery highlight above the brownish color you put on, and underneath your eyebrow.
  8. BLEND! Blend the black into the brown and the brown into the highlight. (Make the change in colors as subtle as you can.)
  9. Apply silver glitter to where you put the silver eyeshadow (this can be a messy step!).
  10. Go over the glitter with the silver eyeshadow again (to cover up any spots or holes) and blend the silver and the sparkles into the green.
  11. Apply the same shade of green that you put on the second half of your lid, on the same half of your lower lid.
  12. Apply a shimmery, bright, plum purple color from the middle of the lower lid to the inner corner. Blend the two colors together in the middle of your lower lid. 
  13. Put a little bit of a sea colored green next to the tear duct, and blend it out.
  14. Apply a black liquid or gel liner on the top, and a black pencil liner on the bottom in the water line.
  15. Apply mascara on top and bottom...
And you are ready to go!!
