Holiday makeup ideas: green eyeshadow

And for the last difficult to easy, holiday makeup transformation, I take on the green eye shadow. Which after blue, is the hardest color to wear sometimes (blue eye shadow will forever be the most impossible color to wear!). Green eye shadow by itself is just not that fun.

Using a L’ancome sample palette for eye shadow that my sister gave me (came free with a purchase). Benefit’s Hello Flawless foundation and mini They’re Real mascara. Urban Decay’s Glide on pencil. And L’oreal Infallible 737 persistent plum (the lipsticks in the Infallible line are THE best long wear lipsticks I’ve ever tried).

The trick here is that when you have an eye shadow that has a metallic tint to it, you can gently dip your brush in a little bit of water. This has a few positives to it – it intensifies your color, making it more rich and metallic, but also it makes the shadow last longer! I thought adding black eyeliner would also make the green more fancy for a night out, especially for a NYE party! In hindsight, I probably should have used a red lipstick instead of this dark plum one, but oh well.
